SOURCE: rear brake pads
try going to the site below here as well as reading this, it's really helpful and informative, it's a nice step by step. braking systems, when it comes to changing the brake pads hasn't really changed much with modern technology, just remember to used the proper tools to compress all the pistons equally, and also if your pistons have that cross going over the top of them then you have to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to turn the piston counterclockwise this will compress the piston.....hope this and the site are helpful....good luck and happy wrench turning!

Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!

No, do not open the brake fluid lines. If the piston has groves cut in to the face of it, you will need a special compressor for it. Most new cars with 4 wheel discs use this type of piston. Instead of just pushing the piston in (as you would on older style calipers) you actually need to turn it clockwise while you push it in. They sell the tool at auto parts stores.
