I absolutely detest doing brake jobs. In my life I've done brake jobs on the following:
- 81 626
- 04 Mazda 6
- 96 Miata
- and maybe my 92 Saturn SL, don't remember for sure.
Every single time the job has been a nightmare.
But this summer I've been spending far, far too much money and I need to try and save wherever I can, so I'm considering doing the front brakes on my 6 myself instead of giving my mechanic the job.
Are there any 'gotchas' I need to worry about? I recall on my Miata there is something about needing to back out a piston with an allen wrench instead of just pushing on it, for example.
