its an easy job, all you need is a 17mm socket to undo the wheels, 7mm allen key to undo the pins on the calpier, flathead screw driver or something similar to push the front pistons back, piston rewind tool to push the rear pistons back and u need a T50 star key to undo the retention scew on the discs. only prob you might get is that the retention screw might be rusted up tight, i had to drill mine out to get the discs off.

Oh -forgot to mention. the 'universal' Halfrauds tool doesn't quite fit the rear piston lugholes. You have to remove the end part of the tool that contains the lugs. Then the piston rotates as it is compressed. You can use a 'G' clamp which is just as effective
