If you haven't done brakes, I don't recomend you learn on your girlfriends car! Some rear calipers require a special tool to turn the piston in, to allow room for the new pads, If the parking brake cable is attached you need the tool, if the cable goes to the backing plate, you can just push the piston in with a screwdriver wedged btetween the rotor and the inboard pad. Don't let the caliper hang by the hose! Tie it up to the strut somehow. If you don't open the hydraulics, you wont need to bleed them, just gently pump the brake pedal till it's firm! Do this BEFORE you try to drive!
