Ownself do best.  Since first car.  I only get WS to do if my brake pad wear until the pad slip off the brake system lor.

 

Happen once.  Even without pad car still drive-able except you are using brake drum to brake pad lor.

 

Lesson learnt.

 

 

Ownself do best because I will dismantle the whole brake system, clean it.  Put a lot of grease as if free.

 

Can even bleed the hose to get rid of air.

 

Brake pad will last longer and wear evenly for both side of the same brake as the brake system is greased.

 

 

Just bought a FR Brake pad on Friday for $30.

You can start build up a great tool box by randomly buying those cheap tools from ABC 199 shop.  Hurry ...... I think they are closing down soon or restructuring.

Pads not difficult. Just need to big g or f clamp to clamp the pistons to reset them before installing new pads.

Lots of vid on YouTube. Watch many and you can figure it out

Easiest is still those that don't require special tools. Such as air filter, cabin filter, interior lights. Brake pads quite complicated lah, still need to remove wheel, need jack, etc...
