I can't do the rotors right now but a guy at work says I can do the pads this time around. He mentioned opening the master cylinder and using a C clamp. I watched two diy videos but neither showed that part.
Starting from the beginning of her video the only things I'd do different is loosen the lug nuts before jacking up the car and turn the steering wheel so the caliper is easier to access. Also "tighten the caliper bolts as tight as you can" only applies to a 100# woman like her!
It is indeed very difficult to turn the back wheels. So start with them and the front ones will seem easy. But typically the rear pads wear much slower than the front and thus need to be changed maybe half as often.And for the back wheels? They don't turn as far as I know. This will be my first time trying this.
