If she thinks you don't love her then
a) Take her out for a meal
b) Buy her some flowers or
c) Cram it in her ass. Dry.
Then she'll know you do!

Absolutely fantastic guide ! The only slight criticism I'd make is that you didn't say to replace the dust caps and spring clip but other than that, really awesome guide

The pics are at http://s139.photobucket.com/albums/q291/Calibra_se8/Project%20Cally/changing%20brakes/ if anyone wants them ( I searched photobucket for 'em, dunno if any of the mods can fix this so the guide points to the pics )

how long should it take to do this???

im not really mechanically minded as such but quite happy to give it a go - it looks fairly simple to do myself - is it worth attempting or easier to just get a garage to do it?

Its definetly worth tackling yourself mate! leave yourself a goods few hours to change them and follow the guide and all will be ok.

Tools required are pretty simple really, a socket set, wheel brace, basic car jack, allan key bits to remove your caliper and carrier, some copper grease, brake cleaner and a Philips and Flat screwdriver and a set of pliers :)

I used this guide ( in fact it was me who refound the pics when the link was broken LOL ) If I can do this job then anyone can, it's really quite simple. The only thing I'd say is that you'll need a bit of strength to undo some of the bolts as mine appeared have threadlock on them. Nothing that a bit of elbow grease won't cure !

Yes agreed, its tough on the old muscles but once you are there its a great feeling, as long as everything is nice and tight on refitting ;D
