All in all a good tutorial for the do-it-yourselfer, but you forgot one important thing, especially if you are doing all four brakes. Please check the fluid level in the brake reservoir after compressing EACH caliper piston, if your pads are worn the service person (or you) have been topping off the fluid as the pads wear, if you compress all 4 and don't check you are going to have all that excess fluid on the floor. Use a squeeze bulb to lower the fluid level to 1/2 full after each caliper, either keep the fluid or have some new handy as when you pump the brake pedal the level will drop as the pistons push the new pads against the rotor.
