Question Need to know how to change break pads....

I am wondering how to change the break pads on my '97 Olds Achieva. How hard will this be? Can someone give me some step by step directions/advice?
Thanks in advance.

What you need to do is purchase a service manual for your vehicle and that will tell you what you need to know. It is way too involved to describe in this format.

If you are mechanically inclined and have the proper tools then it is not a difficult task. Just be sure to have the rotors checked and turned to get them true again before replacing the pads. Just replacing the pads can cause problems fast.
Hope this is helpful to ya,

You can get information at many libraries. See if they have a subscription to Mitchels on Demand, Alldata, etc. You can print information and take it home with you. Also Auto Zone has that type of information on their web site.
