What was the difficulty? For the rear brakes, the procedure is relatively straightforward.
0. Ensure parking brake is OFF. (Obviously, chock the wheels and support the car on jack stands.)
1. Remove the two bolts holding the caliper on
2. Wiggle the caliper off. You may need to disconnect the parking brake cable from the caliper.
4. Toss your old brake pads. Keep the springs, etc. in case the new pads don't include them.
5. Twist the caliper piston back into the body. There's a special tool for this, but you can usually use a pair of needle nose pliers instead.
6. Once the piston is fully compressed, put your new pads in, wiggle it over the rotor, reattach the parking brake cable and torque down the caliper.
This really shouldn't take more than about 20-30 minutes per corner.
Did you run into rusted bolts, access issues or something else?
