REPLACING BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS

2003 Buick Regal

Brakes problem
2003 Buick Regal 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 60000 miles

I'd like to replace the rotors and pads on my Mom's 2003 Regal. I just did the same job on my 2005 Chevy Impala. I have two questions:

1. Will the brake design on the Regal be pretty much the same as my 2005 Impala? I'm trying to determine if I should expect the job, steps, etc. To be pretty much the same for both cars.
2. What reasonable priced repair manual would you recommend for a 2003 Buick Regal?

Any help would be appreciated.

I will post the steps below, they are pretty much routine steps for any vehicle's brake job though. is your vehicle equipped with all 4 disc brakes or are the rear brakes drums?

you should check out the link below for a nice repair manual on your vehicle..
