Yeah its really easy to remove them. Just remove the two torx bolts from the back of the caliper, and lift it off the rotor. If you are removing it completely, then remove the brake line from the back of the caliper, and have a drain pan handy to catch the brake fluid. If your changing pads, be sure to push the piston back into the bore before you put the new pads on or they wont fit. A "C-clamp" works great for that. Any more questions just ask.
Thanks, I'll try it today. I got some new pads and rotors and I wanted to try and put them on my self. I know the rotor removal is easy, I've read that they only have some clips holding them on and now I know what to do for the calipers. Thanks a lot.
Thanks. I replaced my front rotors and pads with some Brembo sport slotted rotors and Satisfied ceramic pads. Overall the new setup feels way better. The braking is slightly better and the annoying squealing is gone. And the removal / replacement proceidure was very easy. Thanks for the info guys!
Don't mind at all. I paid close to $300 for the pads and rotors from the tire rack. I'm sure that you can probably find this combo for cheaper somewhere else but for me it was convenient because I'm overseas right now and It's not easy to shop for parts and look for bargains around here. Gotta love e-commerce!
FYI, it's always a good idea to open up the brake bleeder valve when you push the piston back into the Caliper. This will eliminate a lot of the old brake fluid, just put a hose over it and catch it in a can or someting.
