I now this doesnt help much, but i agree i bought our multi last year and had to replace both the front pads and the front discs and it was a doddle if only i could remeber how i did it.

I gotta do i few jobs onour multi so will post with details when had a quick look at them for you.

But if i remember rightly then you only need undo the 2 bolts on rear of the callipers to remove the outer shroud from the caliper and drop the new pads in and pop the shroud/cover back on and replace the 2 pins and hey presto job done i think.

Just remember to take the cap off the brake fluid resovoir as when you push the caliper open the fluid needs somewhere to go.

Opening the bleed screw should always be done to avoid pushing the brake fluid back through the hydraulics, as it can damage abs units and master cylinders.

I did my front pads last year on my JTD along with two new discs and although I can't remember all the steps I was amazed how easy a job it was. Hope this is encouraging.
