Front pads are an easy. Remove the wheels, and locate the lower caliper bolt. It's facing inwards and is about four inches long. Remove the bolt and pry the brake pad holder(along with the pads)upwards to pivot the assembly around the upper caliper bolt. Now you need to push the brake piston inwards in order to make room for the new pads. You can either loosen the bleeder valve (it's a small bolt on the top of the caliper) or open the brake fluid resovoir cover in the engine compartment. Using a piece of wood push the piston all the way in. Take care not to damage the rubber seal and do not use excessive force. Remove the pads. Retain the metal wire clamps and flat steel spacers. Apply generous amounts of brake pad paste on the back side of the pads and reinstall them along with the clamps and spacers. Install the pads, caliper bolt and be sure to bleed the brake lines to get rid of all the air bubbles in the brake lines. Install the wheels and test drive. If the brakes feel ineffective, bleed the brake lines. Total time no more than an hour.
