It's always worth doing the job yourself if you have the skills, that way you know it's been correctly without the usual bull of ..... "Excuse me Sir but did you know that **** also needs replacing"! And you haven't paid someone to do something you could do for yourself.
It is cold though!

One little tip for changing pads on anything, First job remove cap fom master cylinder, and cover with clean rag, If anybody has topped up fluid with worn pads when you push old pads back fluid can squirt from cap breather hole all over your lovely paintwork.

Gord

you are right mate, inside is vertually the same as the old drum system with the difference being that the drum is built into the centre of the rear disc, the result being that the handbrake should last a very very long time as in theory the pads inside, are only ever used when the hand brake is engaged.

after market pads are cheap enough from your local motorist shop along with all the other service parts too so jobs a gudun.
