A new side of me
I replaced my own brake pads today. It cost a bit to get the equipment I needed, but not that much more than having it done by someone else, and it was a lot more fun. Unfortunately, I stripped one of the bolts so I was only able to do one side, but I'll figure out how to get it off and do that side too. Once I figured out all the specifics it was pretty easy. Here is the website I found instructions at: http://autorepair.about.com/od/fixityourself/ss/brakepadreplace.htm. I found them straightforward and easy to follow. I ran into a bit of confusion over the piston, but I figured it out. Yeah! I also got everything to do my own oil changes so that will be my next project, most likely this weekend.
