Hi,

Replacing rear brake pads and rotors really isn't too hard. Plus, if you do it yourself, purchase lifetime parts so you never have to pay for them again.

You can expect rear brakes to last around 30,000 miles, but that changes based on terrain and driving habits.

To get started, here is a link that explains in general how it's done. Use this as a guide and video on same make the process is the same.
