If you can change your tires, you should be able to change your own brake pads. That link Sickfinga provided is a good help, but it's a different car, thus the bolt sizes are different. Be careful with the brake sensor, it's a bit tricky putting everything back. Just take your time. Good luck!

you don't need a new brake sensor. it's a waste of money. You will feel when you need new pads. or just change them every 4000-6000km's. I haven't used a sensor for the past 3 years with no problems

i would be changin mine every 2 months if it was like that 4K-6K

i think he meant more around 40K to 60K


btw do you guys change just the pads or the rotors at the same time? when i had mine done last time they changed the rotors as well as the brake pads. they didn't touch the rear pads or rotors both were still fine
