    Default HowTo: Change front brake pads on Mazdaspeed3

    Hey guys,

    Just figured this deserved its own thread and maybe a sticky.

    I've posted up a full guide on changing the front pads. Please let me know if you have any input for changes or clarifications.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Can anyone confirm whether the brakes are the same on the 2010+ MS3? I make note that my instructions are for the 2007-2009 but if they're the same, I'll update it.

    I give the how to a 9 put better pictures of lubricating the caliper pins and spring pionts. You don't want people complaining their brakes are sticker and making noise after they followed the how to.

    the link doesnt seem to work anymore
    Oh damn, that sucks. Oh well, I stopped reading the Speed section because according to certain people only speed owners are allowed to even look at that section.

    Sorry about that. Had an IP change on my server. Should be all good now or very soon.
