remove hubcap remove wheel bolts remove screw that holds rotor to shaft remove two bolts behind the calipers~ remove the spring clip that holds the pads against the assembly clean all surfaces with a small brush and rag assemble the new replacement pads put the spring clip in inspect the wear characteristics of the rotor should be even both sides....both wheels~ put a little of the blue fudgy grease on the back (to stop resonations) assemble the pads with the retaining clips line up the calipers....there should be at least 1/4 "float" so the whole assembly moves on the pins...be sure that it is not binding....there is a special lubricant for the slides...if needed torque to a medium hard (not hurting the threads)~ check the float to be sure the bolts are tightened~ put the wheel and the hubcap back on....see that was easy~!
