Best Answer

Jack up the front wheel you intend to work on, and remove the tire. There are two bolts that hold the brake caliper on, (located on the back side.) Remove these and the caliper will pull of the disc. Use a C-clamp to comperss the slave cylinder (push on the inside brake pad) This will make it so you can put the new pads in and still get it back on the disc. Pop ou tht eold pads, put the new ones in, and start bolting things back together. Not much to it.

unless you need to replace the rotors then when you retighten the spindle nut it is 75 foot lbs..back off 1/2 turn then tighten 25 inch pounds

Knock pins out holding the caliper in place. Pull caliper off of rotor. Remove old pads from inside of caliper. Sometimes, the back pad will still be sitting against the back of the rotor. Replace front pad back in the same grooves on the caliper.
