    I have been told it is difficult for the rear pads.
    Generally I am fine changing pads but this seems to be more involved.
    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    These have a conventional set up, which means that the caliper piston has to be turned clockwise as it is pushed in....you mustn't just force it back.
    It can help to heat up the caliper securing bolts before attempting to loosen as they have locking compound on them, and remove the rusty wear lip from the disc as you slide the caliper out.
