Post Replacing brake pads

Hey guys, I'm planning on changing my front and rear brake pads. On saturday I replaced some on a honda and subraru, are they pretty much the same? Are the back any different from the front?

If your '83 has the "tick tack toe" type of retaining spring for the pads, it is very simple. Merely squeeze in the center (top to bottom) to detach from snap at top. Retainin spring rotates at bottom. Then just spread pads and pull them out.

'86 951. On mine, rears are identical to fronts.

Don't forget to drain the master cylinder of all fluid. Take all of it out and put some new fluid in. That way you can compress easier to get the pads themselves out.

Your 83' 944 is similar to the Subaru and Honda you recenlty did, front and rear.

The 951s use 4 piston fixed calipers which are quite different (and easier).

Also don't mess with the fluid in the MC unless you have to.
