Are your car's brakes making a grinding noise every time you apply the brake? Are you running low on cash or just don't trust any mechanic with your special baby? Do you have access to a few basic tools and not afraid to get your hands a little dirty? Well if you said yes to the three questions listed above then your in luck. With this short and simple tutorial I will show you step-by-step how to change the brake pads on your passenger car. 

*Note: By careful when changing your brake pads on your or anyone else car. I do not hold responsibility for any injury to anyone*  

Step 1: The tools that you will need.

The tools that you'll need to complete this afternoon project are very simple and easy to acquire tools. These tools consist of:
-Lug Wrench
-An open ended or an adjustable wrench (it depends on what kind of a car you are working on)
-A hammer (one that you can swing around in a somewhat tight area)
-A set of Allen wrenches (standard or metric, it depends on the make and model of your car)
-Jack stands
-Car jack (the one that was provided with your car will work just fine)
-Your new brake pads 
<p>Remove excess brake fluid from the expert <br>cylinder before raising the vehicle &ndash; this guarantees there is space for liquid <br>to come to the cylinder without overflowing when you push the piston over into <br>the caliper.The brake hose and <br>caliper will require backing <br>during the methodology &ndash; to do this attach some wire around the caliper and the hose then <br>secure to a suspension component for extra back.</p><p>Thanks</p><p>Ailsa@ <a href="https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/brake-pads-replacement" rel="nofollow">https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/brake-pads-replacement</a></p>
