Sorry guys,

Just want some direction, even better if you had pics of someone changing their rotors and pads on their car. Im just a little sketchy bout doing it all myself but dont get me wrong i want to. i have never changed my brake fluid before so i am just a noob at brakes. i would really appreciate it if someone had directions or pics on this process. i have a 94 legacy L. also im going to be doing my drive axles, and any info on that would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks in advance

I think the best thing to do is get a service manual to guide you with this. It will show you what to do about this job and also the next one you have down the road. It is a worthy investment.

When I had help changing my brakes, the guy who helped me documented the whole process in a step by step photo instruction web page. I will try and find it for you :) It might be later today though, I have to get to work soon!

I thought it would take forever to find since everything happened about 3 years ago, but it took about 5 minutes :) Enjoy!

thanks a bunch,

the site was great, but i have one questions, you didnt mentions anything about brake fluid or anthing?? was that on purpose or what?

There is no need to touch the brake fluid. If you want to, get a one man brake bleed kit from the parts store.

The next week, I went and had them flushed/refilled at the dealer for $25. Brake fluid is toxic stuff and I dont want the doggie around it :)
