Its pretty simple. Take your wheels off. unbolt the calipers. take out the old brake pads. use a c clamp to compress the pistons. put in new brake pads. slide caliper back over. if it doesnt fit continue to compress the pistons with a c clamp using the old brake pad to distribute even pressure on the pistons. make sure you put anti squeal on the back on the brake pads as well. then bolt it all back up. backs you need some tool i think i havent done the rears before.
Thank you guys...TurtleSlow and Shaunmac9128 for your responses. I have found something tthat will help all of you, like myself, is doing this job for the very firs time....look at this video. Yes you need a special tool to compress the calipers...check it out....
i just used my big c clamp cause when u tighten it it also turns... worked fine for me... i did buy one of those cheap 4 dollar tools and chucked it into the woods about 2 tries after buying it lol used the clamp instead.
