    Default Anyone up to doing a How-To for brake pads?

    It might not be a tough job for those that have done it more than once, but it is a little intimidating for those that have never done it.

    Does anyone feel like doing a write-up for changing out brakes pads? With all the folks on here there's got to be someone that's got a digital camera that's due for a brake change.

    I think it would be greatly appreciated by a LOT of folks!

    Thanks!

    If I ever get around to rebuilding my front-end, I'll try to catch it with the rest of the work I'll be doing. However, if someone else wants to get it done sooner, I'm game.

    Crap, just did mine last week. Maybe I'll pull it apart again later this week if no one else has stepped up.

    i would very much like to see this done, as i think im getting close to needing it done, and would rather not pay for someone else to do it..although, im not entirely sure i trust myself with something so...important..to a vehicle safety.

    Well, I have to wait for the snow to melt, but the kids are on spring break now, so I may have some free time.

    Yeah a write up would be GREAT! Specifically a write up for the people that don't have disc brakes.

    I'm currently in the middle of changing all my brakes. I ran into a problem that i think a lot of people will run into as well. I was able to get past the problem with some minor headaches. I'm taking some photos and i might give writing up a how-to a shot.
