    Yes really easy job

    Be ware that even tho it's on an 06 plate being a campus it's probably got the mk2 brakes.

    Youll need a 7mm Allen key to do the calipers bolts

    If its only the pads your changing all need to do is
    Jack it up an support it
    Remove wheels
    Remove rubber bungs from end of caliper sliders
    unclip wear indicator plug of fitted
    Undo the 7mm bolt which also acts as the slider
    move caliper out the way
    swap pads over
    carefully push piston back.( I tend to just put hammer handle into piston an then push against my shoulder)
    clean up sliders
    Rebuild

    Tools needed should only be
    Wheel brace
    jack and axle stands
    hammer, g clamp or similar to push piston back
    7mm Allen key

    Hope that helps

    Front brake pads never need the tool to wind them back.

    Only require rewind tool on rear calipers mate.

    All a rewind tool does it make life bit easier pushing them back.
