Pretty straight forward. Are you replaceing just the pads, or the rotors as well?

Like Vitalidle said , it's pretty much the same as any other brakes. I always use a big c-clamp to push the pistons back in on the calipers to make room for the new pads instead of opening the line and trying to bleed them when done , but that i'm sure is nothing new to anyone.

It's common for the guide pins to be siezed for the front calipers. I had to use a torch with a 2lb mallet and drift to get them free. New guide pins and rubber boots are available at the parts store.
