It's not difficult to replace the brake pads and you will be amazed at how economical it is. Get a repair manual that will explain to you detailed how to replace the pads. Then, make sure you have all the tools required to do the job. Most brakes are 2-5, and usually more hard at first time you do it, getting easier as you do it more often. Proper Tools and the manual will make it much easier.

It's easy to change brake pads if you are used to it or when your doing it before. Just buy yourself a good brake cleaner though.
