Detailed? OK...

First take off the wheel and set aside. Then, look for the two pins that hold the caliper on; there is one on the top and one on bottom. They are made of tow peices that can be squeezed together at the end and then pushed out the back or front. The caliper may need a little encouragement to come off of the rotor especially so with lots of mileage. Take note of how the pads are installed and which pad goes on which side so you can put the new ones in correctly. The pads can be a little tricky to get back in, but if you take your time and go carefully you won't have a problem. Take a wrech/socket and unscrew the bolt holding on the breakline fitting. It is a banjo fitting that will have a washer on the top and bottom to seal it. Your new caliper may or may not have a fitting with it, just reuse the fitting and washers if not. Wipe down the rotor with some brake clean and measure it to ensure it's not too thin; there should be a measurement stamped on the rotor that's not to be exceeded. If it's good then just slide the caliper w'pads installed back on the rotor. Take a dab of brake grease and rub on the two caliper pins to help the caliper slide back and forth. The just push back into place with a little help from a mallet. Doulbe check you got everything put back on in the right place and then put the wheel back on and torq accordingly.

there are two screws in the healights. Undo them from the front with a philips head screwdriver. Pull off the wiring harness from the back of the bulb under the hood and remove your light. Take it to your local auto parts store, (unless you already have your new lights!) and they'll get the right ones for you. Repeat the procedure in reverse.

1. get the battery tested to rule out a collapsed cell.

2. If the battery is ok, check the wiring harness that runs from the passengers front corner, to the drivers front corner, for a break in the wires. A common spot to find one would be near the passengers side.
