As LoNOx 1 said, they are no different than other disc brakes. It's easy if you know what you are doing :p

I remove the lower caliper bolt and loosen the upper caliper bolt so the caliper swings up but is not completely detached, but that's just my preference. There is no risk of yanking the hydraulic line and it's one less bolt to reassemble. All the other steps are the same.

As with any disc brake job, be sure to inspect the condition of the rotor inside and out. Also check if one pad is worn much more than its mate, as this may indicate a caliper problem.

Since the hydraulics are never opened, there is no need to bleed the brakes, however the caliper piston will remain compressed until the system is pressurized. Be sure to pump the brake pedal until it is no longer mushy before you drive anywhere.
