90% of the time the sequence is identical.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.
Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.
Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.
With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.
Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.
ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.
Hope this helps.

find where top hose comes from the radiator into the engine block, then drain some of the coolant out and remove hose and thermostat from the block. remember which way the termostat sits in the block and install new one. its always a good idea to flush your cooling system before putting in a new thermostat. if the old one was plugged up, the gunk thats in your system will just plug up the new one in time too. you can get a bottle of radiator flush from most auto parts stores.
