its piss easy, just take the wheel off, undo a couple of bolts
push the piston back in so theres enuff clearance for the new pads
put new pads in
do bolts back up
put wheel on
and bed in the brakes!

Yep, front brake pads are much the same job, rears are too I think but I'm not sure I think with some Fords u have to screw the piston in or something.

i have a special tool for it :D

its just a piece of metal with a hole drilled and trapped and a peice of threaded rod that goes through it, all i do is leave one pad in there, the one agasnt the piston, and screw the rod through the hole and it pushes the piston back in! works really good
