Planning to do a rotor and pad replacement soon on a friends 03 Baja. Does anyone have any special tips on how to do this job ? How much work will be required on the ABS ? What tools are needed ? Thank you.

Based on my 00 OBW you'll need 14mm (or 12?) for the caliper bolts, and a 19mm to get the lugs. Very easy job, shouldn't have to mess with the ABS, it's a sensor bolted to the knuckle housing.

Take wheel off
unbolt lower caliper bolt and swing up, you shouldn't need to but if you take both bolts off rest the caliper on a block (don't let it hang).
the rotor should pull off (Don't need to undo the center bolt)

reverse order with pleanty of brake cleaner and you're done.
