It is real easy. I think there are 2 or 4 bolts to take out. After the take then out the caliper off and replace the pads. It is not hard.

The front is a piece of cake. Take the caliper bolt out flip it down, put in new pads, depress piston, done. Of course there are more steps to do, like take of wheel, take top off of brake fluid reservoir, but it is pretty easy. The rear is the same except you have to disconnect the e-brake and use an allen wrench to move the piston in or out. Get a Haynes manual and you will get the play by play and you don't have to be a mechanic to do this. One piece of advice I have is to use a torque wrench when putting you wheels back on.

I forgot one thing, check the condition of the rotors. If they are in bad shape (grooves) you should replace them too.
