disc brake pads replacement on a 08 Nissan Versa

Can someone direct me to finding the procedure on replacing the front disc brake pads on an 08 Nissan Versa? Most of the repair manuals do not contain this updated info yet. Thanks.

Brakes are brakes. Nothing different on a Versa then any car with rotors and calipers. Remove the two small bolts on the caliper, remove the piston, push the pads out, install new. Done.

As was stated, 'brakes are brakes', so if this is your first attempt at doing a brake job, and this is the reason you posted for advice I would suggest that at the very least you Google and review some of the many videos available on line to ensure that you do it correctly, including checking the rotors to ensure that they are within safety tolerance, machining them, or for sure replacing them if not within remaining thickness tolerance ( do not only replace the pads), and also ensuring that you clean the calipers and lubricate the sliders as well. It is not rocket science but your life or someone elses depends on the job being done right. If you have done brakes in the past doing this vehicle should be bascially no different.
