    Default Workshop Manual?

    I know Haynes manual does not cover the VXR but it there anything out there in print or downloadable. Looking to do some basic jobs ( brake discs / pads etc ) and always handy to have a guide. If not is there a howto for pad replacement? Done many other brakes but a bit wary of the Brembo calipers.

    As for changing the brake pads, that is easy. Do a search on You Tube for changing Brembo pads. Dont forgrt these are the same calipiers as the Evo.

    Thanks for that , will have a look round You Tube for next time , cheated this time as was unsure and it was bloody cold yesterday so Paid F1 Autocenters to drop them in , only £34 to fit. Watched them fit and looks pretty straight forward. My concern was the fixed metal brake pipe to the calliper but to change pads the calliper stays in place so no need to move. Only paid £44 for the Brembo pads from eurocarparts ( they have a sale that seems to always be on so 50% off ) so total of £78. Better than the £300 plus from the dealer !
