hi there.not a hard job first remove the wheels. then you need to remove the caliper. there are two bolts that the calipers are mounted on i believe you will need a 7mm allen wrench. once the bolts are removed pry the calipers away from the rotor. and set it aside. you dont need to disconnect the brake line. if you are going to put new rotors on you will need to remove the bracket that the calipers mount to. these are held on by two bolts. otherwise you need to take the pads out of the bracket and install you new ones. one of the pads should have stayed with the caliper. you will need to push the piston back in it s bore using a piston depressor or a c clamp vise grip. once this is done install the new pad in the caliper and the one on the bracket the same way the old ones were on and then slide you caliper back on and bolt it into place.put your tire back on and job is done. dont forget to pump your brakes before you drive
