Default 2000 S80 T6 Front Brakes

I need to replace my front rotors and pads. Has anyone done this themselve. I've done many break jobs, but not on Volvo's. Is there anything tricky to look out for. Are the rotors hard to get off. Should I use anti sqeal paste or spray? Thanks in advance.

They are fairly easy to do.
You will need a 7mm Allen wrench for the calipers.I think the caliper bracket bolts are a 15mm head.A 10mm for the rotor hold down screws.

They will come off pretty easy. You might have to give them a tap with a hammer.

Thanks Tech, for the feedback. One more question. Do you recommend any pads that don't leave so much dust on the wheels? Thanks.

Sorry I reccomend the OEM.
Others will disagree.
