Just the pads, (go out andbuy a tool to compress the caliper, will look like a cut out the shape of a brake pad with a bolt in the middle, about 5-10 bucks, and nice tool to have if your going to do this again) ok take the tires off one side, ,jack it up of course. There will a brake caliper over the rotor, rotor is the round shiney thing like a plate. That caliper will have two bolts, one toward the top, one toward the bottom. Get them out, lift the caliper off. , use a jack stand or position the caliper so it isn't just hanging by the hose, thats a brake line so be careful with it. The brake pads are inside the caliper one on each side, the sit on each side of the rotor and act as a clamp when you push the brakes. Pay careful attention to how the they come out, may have wire clips or something helping hold them in. Once they are out use a brake caliper tool and one of the old pads, put the pad on the round circle tube like thing in the middle of the inside of the caliper, place the cut out part of the tool into where the other pad went, and turn the screw to force that round circle tube thing back, so it is open wider. If you can't turn the tool and move the caliper so it is more open, then the caliper maybe bad. But lets save that question for later. Once you get the caliper wide open, put the new pads in with saftey clips and springs if it has them. Slide it back over the rotor (thats why you have to open it wide, the new pads will be thicker) and then replace the bolts. If your just doing the pads then put then make sure it all is tight and put the tire back on and of course let it off the jack. Repeat on the other side. Hopefully that works for ya if you need more info just ask. Good luck.
