Smile Changed rear brake pads...

I needed to swap in some new pads asap, did it this past sunday. Thanks to a search of the i-club, found some great brake pad diy info. Took all of about 40 minutes, start to finish. Subaru made this very easy to do. Some tips- a turkey baster works great for getting some extra brake fluid out of the master cylinder. Also, I didn't have a c-clamp, so I used a small crowbar and carefully pushed in the piston- it worked just fine. So- don't fear this one, its quite easy. Now I have great brakes again, and saved a bundle too.
