    Thanks, that is nice! I'm pretty sure i have a stuck rear caliper. Would have been nice if there was a 'how to' for brake install. I've done it on a different car but its nice to have a reference to follow.

    Do you have access to the shop manual? I can email you the PDF if you want. It's actually a lot easier than you think. Two bolt for the front, 4 for the rear, after the tires is removed of course. The pads literally drop in.

    On the brake pads, the inner one, ther is a metal clip that acts as a wear bar. It makes a grinding noise against the rotor to let you know they are old. The one on the rear passenger side was fed through the mounting clip, so that pad wasn't moving at all. So as a tip, don't do that! LOL!
