Changing the pads on a car is very DIY’able but at the very lest you need spanners and an axel stand.If you haven’t done anything like this before then it’s a good idea to find someone who has to give you a hand.
Replaced the front pads on my wifes' MGF with EBC Street Kevlar items Tuesday evening and even allowing for a thorough clean of the calipers etc the whole job can be completed in 30-45 mins.
The process is so simple it only takes a few brief lines in the workshop manual but like anything, if you don't feel confident then pay someone to do it for you.
i managed to do it! =D i have no experience at all! lol jsut did it a few days ago actualy. was rewarding to me as ive never done anything like that. one thing i wud say tho. the back spring(if you call it that) it wasn't going back with a g clap i thought it had seezed but it had to be twisted around for it to go back. do you know what i mean? =S
