Answers :

You'll need some box wrenches, maybe a set of allen wrenches, a 6 inch C clamp, and that's about it.
After you jack up the car and remove the tire, you have to remove 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on.
they are on the back side of the caliper. some times they are bolts that you can remove with a wrench and sometime they are an allen bolt that will take an allen wrench to remove it. The brake caliper will come off the rotor and the brake pads will come out of the caliper. The pads are usually different for the inside and outside position.Now come the only difficult part. You need a 6" C clamp and a flat piece of iron like a file.What you have to do is return the piston of the caliper to it's original position.Use the piece of iron placewd over the piston and the C clamp to force it into the socket. Before you do this open the hood and remove the cover to the master brake cylinder to allow the brake fluid to come back into the piston. This cylinder is on the firewall and easy visible.
once the C clamp has returned the piston to its correct position you can insert the new pads andplace the caliper back or the rotor. Check the rotor for heavy scoring. reinsert the two bolts and tighten them up. Thats it. The operation with the Cclamp may sound complicated but it's really not.

Hope this helps
Good luck Loringh
