Default Links to guide for changing brake pads/discs?

Hi All,

I want to replace the brake pads all around on my 2015 V40 D3.

Ive had a search around and cant seem to find any how to guides or videos. Can anyone please point me in the direction if they know of a link, or to that if a different car/model with the same brakes?

Thanks
Andy

Fronts are the easiest;

Jacked up and on axle stands
Wheel off
Caliper guide bolts out
Caliper off and old pads out
Push piston back in by hand or G clamp
Fit new pads
Put back together
Pump the brakes

Rears are different.

Same way to start but the pistons need to be wound back in rather than pushed so you'll need a caliper rewind tool.

Youve spent serious wedge on a 3-year old car, get a garage to do it.
At least, get someone to "help" you, show you how.
I cant help but think that if you need to ask Qs like this then perhaps you shouldnt be tinkering without supervision.

Charles Darwin is generally ignored these days in favour of anything-goes political correctness, but natural selection still works a treat. Play with jacks and brakes at your peril.

I'm a motor engineer and it genuinely terrifies me when people say this. If you want to work on safety systems and you don't know how, THEN DONT.

Salut!

Thanks for the comments (and the assumptions).

Im perfectly competent home mechanic and brake pads are a pretty straight forward job for me. However I like to see what Im doing before I get the wheels off (as itll be the first time with the Volvo), and make sure I have all the correct tools to hand.
