I have searched for this, but have come up empty handed. I have rotors and pads for all 4 corners, and wanted to know if anyone had a how-to on the install. Keep in mind that I have not done a brake job before, but have reasonable mechanical skills. I do have the Chilton's manual, but I am worried that there may be some nuances that are not covered. Thanks in advance.

dude i have never changed brake pads in my life but i did the front ones the other day. they were easy just take the wheel off, then two bolts hold the capliar on, after that the rotor should come off but don't forget to disconnect the sensor on the capliar(driver side only). i have pads for the back but i heard that the back capliar is a pain. good luck.

Cool. I don't have the brake wear sensor, so I shouldn't have to worry about that.

Turn the piston with a a pair of long nosed pliers. Or get the caliper tool from any auto parts store. Just turn and the piston will retract
