If you have changed brake pads before, then yes, it is pretty much the same as others. The brake line is held in place by a nut, which you should loosen to make it easier to move the caliper. After that, just use a c-clamp to compress the piston back down (check that the brake fluid reservoir doesn't overflow, I have heard that the stuff is pretty corrosive).

I didn't re-adjust the parking brake though.

Let us know how it turned out :cheers:
