New Brake Pads on my 08
Well, I did my front brakes the other day. The pictures I'd downloaded off the internet went out the window pretty much right away. It's pretty straightforward. And I'm just learning. The hardest part was getting the pistons to retract. If you can do it with your thumbs you are more of a man than I. I jammed and wiggled a wrench between the old pads. First time, took me about an hour. I just did the rear in about 20 minutes. It is not hard. And as Wanderer said, check those things. My rear pads were so close to shot it was ridiculous.
