  1. Did the job this past Sunday. Turned out I needed one more bit-set, a hex-bit set, which I was able to get at O'Reilly's. You need that to remove the lower brake-line bracket. The left front took me a couple of hours as it was a 1st for me. The right took only 45 min. The pads came out very easily, once spread. Hardest part was getting the left rotor off. Must have pounded on it for 20 minutes. Almost gave up. Right rotor was much easier to get off. Thanks guys for all the help! It was invaluable. Saved a ton! Ron
  2. OK, thanks! Just ordered the guide pins and will be trying this as soon as they arrive. First time for brakes. Wish me luck. :cheers:
  3. We really need a detailed DIY video on these new brakes. I can't figure out how to remove the pads after the caliper is slid off the rotor. :help:
  4. 2014 Cayenne Diesel. I've searched extensively and can't seem to find an answer. All the hits were for older Cayennes. The placement of the floor jack, I'm assuming is the same place as the tire jack (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) but can't seem to get an answer for the placement of the Jackstand in the front. Also, would a single 3-ton stand be sufficient for raising one wheel? From what I've read, the ratings are for using 2 stands, and a single stand may be only 1/2 the rating at 1.5 tons, which may not be enough for a 2-ton+ SUV. Thanks for any advice. Ron
