    Default How easy is it to replace pads+discs 2.0

    Morning all, Just bought a set of discs and pads for both front and rear. 302mm front 292mm rear.

    How easy is it to fit these on a 2.0 facelift, taking into account i have never touched brakes on any car...... all I have is my trusty haynes manuel. also do i need a rewind tool?

    should i even bother or take it to the garage to be done.......

    Its a job that once you have done a few times you will be able to do it with your eyes shut.. BUT as its your first time, get assistance / help from someone who has done it before.. these is the only thing that stops you so not worth taking a risk mate.
