Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I WANT TO CHANGE THE PADS MYSELF AS THE DEALERSHIP CHARGES WAY TOO MUCH TO DO WHAT I THINK IS A SIMPLE REMOVE/REPLACE JOB.

Pads are a simple job.remove tire,remove bolts from caliper,take caliper loose,remove old pads,take a clamp and use it to compress cylnder,replace your new padsreplace cliper place bolts put tire on and go to the next one.

It is one of the easiest things you can do yourself but you also need to check other stuff while you are at it. No sense just replacing the pads if the rotors are shot . While you have it jacked up might as well check tie rods,ball joints,etc.
