It's a complicated job, and usually takes about 8 hours to do the full service if you're familiar with the car's mechanicals, you have a good array of tools (air tools help a lot), you're familiar with what you're doing, and with how to disassemble everything (including removing the front of the car - I'm not joking). There's more to the job than just the belt too - you need to replace the timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, serpentine belt, and serpentine tensioner. If your cam seals are leaking (which is also known to happen), you'd need those and plan for a couple more hours as well, due to the care that must be taken not to scratch or score the cam end caps.

Remove the tires, Remove the calaper bolts, (small heads on them 12mm or so) Remove calaper, Pads are setting in a holder. Lube new pads with litheum grease and place in holder. (look at old pads, one or both may have small metel tab on one end) If the new pads have the tab, put that pad where the old pad with the tab was. (ie. tab to the inside) Press pistion in with a 'C' clamp. If it won't go in easly, it may screw in. If the parking brake cable is hooked to the calaper, it probly screws in. Use large pliers to screw in calaper piston. Place calaper over pads and install bolts (lube bolts) Rember to pump brakes befor driving . to get a solid peddle.

That indicates that the ABS controller is having issues. The ABS controller is the metal box along the driver's side of the engine, just in front of the coolant overflow tank. The controller is the black box on top of it with the harness attached. You can buy a new one (expensive) or send yours to www.modulemaster.com for a warrantied rebuild. They have a great reputation on the Audi forums I frequent, and you can drive the car while it's gone (you just won't have functioning ABS while it's gone).
