Hi there is very little diff in rear disc and front on your vehicle. You may have to back the park brake adjuster off some. Other then that. Pretty simple. Good luck billymac

Hi justdon,

Thank you for the donation.

If you have replaced the front brake pads before, then this should not be a problem as it is similar.

Remove caliper bolts and use a G-clamp to push the piston back into caliper till it is fully in.

Remove pads and reinstall new pads.

Reinstall caliper.
