It looks like I need to do a front brake replacement on my E28 '88 535i. Could someone please let me know what I need to do to replace these correctly?
I hear that it is simple, but I have never replaced calipers and pads and rotors before. Any advice will be appreciated!!

Thank you for the links. They were helpful! Everything went together as it should. Now, I need to figure out how to bleed the brakes more effectively. I bled the fronts before I replaced the wheels, but stopping seems to take more effort than it should. More leg pressure, more pedal time and travel. Any suggestions??
