Brake replacement

Alright. I have done quite a bit of work on my 530i. I would like to take on the brakes. I have done brake jobs on Mazda's and Chevy pickup's, so I have some clue. Does anyone have the complete instructions on the process to do it on my 530? I have a feeling that doing the brakes on this car will be much different.

Thanks.

Larry

Brake pad replacement on the e39, is pretty simple..... it looks exactly the same as the e36.....so here are 2 links:

How I installed new brake pads on my 1999 528i with Sport Package (should be fine for other E39’s)
