Very easy to do but you have to be careful the disks on these cars wear out very quickly and more often then not need to be replaced, off the top of my head i think the min thickens is 24 mm but play it safe if there is a big lip on the disk get a new one as a under size disk can end up killing you if your not careful.
all you need for the job is a 13 mm spanner and a screw driver.
remove the wheel and place the screw driver into the top off the caliper and pull back this should push rhe pistons back than undo the lower caliper bolt and remove pull out old pads and shims and replace with new ones.
refit new caliper bolt and refit wheel pump break peddle until firm and then check the brake fluid level youmay have to remove some be shore to check the brake operation befor driving any were

any questions please ask me

good luck

I have a pug 406 2l hdi i have had a problem with the breaks

That sounds like a bad brake rotor or drum. If the brake rotor or drum is thick in one spot and normal on the rest that will cause the pedal to pulsate every time the the rotor or drum reaches that part of its rotation. The solution to this problem is to remove the front and rear rotors or drums and take them to a machine shop so they can be smoothed out, bear in mind you may need to replace them if the thick spot is too great.

Injectors from the same ccm engine are most probably sounds same but to be on the safe side check not only the shape but code on the top of injector too. Because they are piezo effect injectors and set by the manufacture for a specific pressure for specific engine codes.
