keep an eye on this when pushing back pistons, if it gets to the top remove some with a syringe or turkey baster.

Remove wheels. spray brake cleaner on calliper to keep dust from getting in lungs.

use hand brake or get some one to put foot on brake pedal and loosen disc securing screw,
If no one is about or if you have forgotten to loosen screw before taking pads out you can put a bar through a wheel bolt hole to stop hub spinning, be careful though if screw is too tight you may end up damaging threads with the bar.
