Hi Timelord


If you have replaced pads before on other cars then no extra tools are needed basic kit and socket set is all - Dont forget to unscrew thecap on fluid resevoir and keep an eye on thelevel if its been topped up recently it may well overspill- I use a couple of tyre levers to open the calipers with a block of wood in between as they open out. They can bind if you apply too much pressureon one side dont try force them to fast allow the fluid to be pushed back into the resevoir.

Straight forward job takes about 15 -20 mins a wheel.



Good luck
