    depends on your mechanical skills. Pretty much straight forward though, if you know what your doing. Remove 2 bolts for the carriers, remove retainer on caliper and loosen bolts on caliper. whole caliper will come off. Watch out for the wear indicator plug. Install in reverse. You might need to wind calipers back to install new pads.

    No left or right rewind tool, just a Laser rewind tool from Halfords.
    For the rears you'll also need a 14mm spline key, I bought an impact set from machine mart (Laser 4939 6 piece set).
