Step 1: Jack the car up and place it on jack stands. Remove both wheels and set them aside. You should do one side at a time so you can use the other side as a reference.

Step 2: Gather your tools, you will need a disc brake repair kit, 12mm wrench and a 10mm wrench. Rags help to but not required. (Brake fluid not shown)

Step 3: Loosen and remove the 12mm bolt at the bottom of the caliper. There is only one on the bottom because the top is the pivot point.

Step 4: Lift up on the caliper to expose the old pads. Remove the old pads; sometimes you will need to use a small flat head screwdriver to help pry them out if they are stubborn. Sorry I donít have a picture because I was in a hurry and forgot.

Step 5: Take your brake fluid catch bottle and hook the hose to the bleed nipple.

Step 6: With your 10mm wrench loosen the bleed valve a little.

Step 7: Take your disc brake repair kit and fetch out the pad spreader. Read the instructions in the kit to see how it goes together. Compress the piston back into place.

Step 8: (optional) Shave the edges down so that they donít catch on the rotor. Just scrape them against the ground until they are at a 45-degree bevel.

Step 9: Install the new pads the same way you tool out the old ones. Yes, there is a certain way to put them in, check the other side for reference. Sorry again no pics, I was on a role.

Step 10: With the piston compressed and the new pads in. Replace the caliper to its location and reinsert the 12mm bolt. This only needs to be tightened to 20-30 ft lbs.

Step 11: Fill the brake fluid reservoir up with new fluid. If your fluid looks like this, it wouldnít be a bad idea to flush the brake lines. If you donít want to flush the lines, skip to step 14.

Step 12: With your brake fluid catch bottle still connected and the 10mm bolt still loose. Start to pump the brake pedal. The new fluid will start flushing the lines replacing the old with the new. Hint* if you do this to one, you should do it to all four

Step 13: Be sure to keep the level up so you donít start sucking in air. After you have pumped the pedal for a while you will see the new clean fluid start to come through the lines. It is almost clear so you will know when it is flushed. At this time, stop pumping the brake pedal and check the level, keep it high.
