first jack up the car and remove front wheel and then put a big screw driver down the side of the brake pad to push the hydrolic piston back a bit so its easy to remove (caliper) then loosen the top Alan key stud at top of caliper then remove split pin and rod from the bottom of caliper and lift the caliper up (a bit like how a visor goes up on a moter bike helmet) and when its raised it will pull off. fit your other one with the above instructions in reverse then bleed the air out of your brakes (don't forget to undo the hose to caliper.you can clamp tjhe brike pipe hose with mol grips so you don't loose all your brake fluid out but you will still need to bleed the system after .do this by undoing the bleed nipple on caliper one full turn and get some one sitting in the car to press the brake peddle for you.so when you undo the nipple get them to press the brake peddle to the floor and hold then you retighten nipple and they release the peddle and then when you undo again the nipple get them to do the same again.its done like this so air don't suck back in and remember to leave the brake fluid lid off whilst doing all this and keep it topped up.each wheel has to be redone starting furthest away from where you put in fluid. when you think air is out of every caliper and rear brakes a fine jet of fluid will shoot outwith no air anymore hope this helps you if your stuck Justin.hall57@ntlworld.com
