Good equipment choices.
The job is quite simple.
1. Jack up car
2. Remove wheels
3. Unbolt calipers. They're bolted in place with two 3/8" allen head bolts.
4. Slide caliper aside
5. Remove old pads (they're clipped in place)
6. Slide rotor off hub
7. Clean new rotor with brake cleaner (to remove oils)
8. Slide new rotor on the hub
9. Compress the piston into the caliper housing. Use a C-Clamp.
10. Clip new pads into the caliper
11. Bolt the caliper to the knuckle
12. Reinstall the wheel
13. Torque the wheel lugnuts to 100 ft. lbs. in a criss-cross fashion
14. Verify the fluid level in the resivoir on the master cylinder is full. If not, add DOT 3 brake fluid to top it off
30 minute job.
