    See?? It would make interwebz speak soo much better, and you would never need that awkward, "was that sarcasm?" question, or a joke falling flat on its face

Unscrew the 2 14mm heads at the end of the rubber bellows. Take off caliper. Pull pads. Clean where pads ride. Put shimms on new pads back and add lube where they ride and back where pressure is applied. I also put a little under the shims. Place pads, put caliper back on. If bellows turn when srews are going back in use 17mm wrench to hold other side that wants to turn. Put wheel back on. START ENGINE AND APPLY BRAKE PEDAL SEVERAL TIMES. You'll feel long travel the first one or 2 pushes, then it goes back to normal. This is where you put the pistons back to the pads and make the brakes ready for operation.

    PS: the citroen was a 2cv, I just realized there where many different models. Dohh
    Sounds like you just explained how to do WRX pads...

    OP has an STI...which in all reality, is much easier than even that. You don't have to remove any caliper. Each corner is literally two clips, tap out retainer pins, pull pads out with needlenose plyers, compress pistons, insert new pads and shims, tap pins back in, and reinsert clips. Done. But, applying brakes as said above is definitely necessary.

    What's $500, when you're using daddy's money? Or hell, just trade in your car for a 12' Sti, then you won't have to worry about the brakes

    I hated when I had the red dot under my name. Hopefully you'll swing out of it too, but as of right now, doesn't seem like it. and for the record, this topic has been touched upon, many many many times.

    not to mention, my dads job doesn't necessarily have to be the reason I have an STi. For example, my friend's dad passed away about a year or so ago, the ensurance money finally came through last week, he now has 80k in his back account and is able to access it whenever since he's 19. With 80k he can go to a BMW dealership and get a brand new M3. So next time you look at what people have, look outside of the box rather then thinking, "look at that rich snob". Because when it comes down to it, my family buys what we want to enjoy, who's to say we still have thousands upon thousands in the bank? as far as you know I could owe people thousands.

    Please stop assuming, sit back and do some learning and respect the other members so that red dot has a slight chance of turning green.

    Im just saying this is part of whats wrong with the world today. I've been working since I'm 17, I now work 60hrs a week to afford the things I want. I've never gotten a hand out and have never had a safety net to fall back on ( no one in my family has a lot of money)

    Then I see a 17yo kid with an '11 Sti, on his second engine and has blasted through a set of Brembos already ( just in street driving I'm assuming, since I don't think they let 17yo on a track), I'm not going to pretend that it doesn't make me sick. I'm sure you're a "nice" kid, but you have no idea what a dollars worth. You didn't just get an Impreza, not even a WRX, you got a fricken STI brand new off the lot for your first car, I bet you don't even pay your own insurance. I bet when you need to fill your tank every other day, because you drive like a gorilla on speed, you just whip out daddy's credit card.

    Entitled and ungrateful. That's all I have to say. Maybe after you destroy your Sti, ask your dad to buy you something used to humble yourself before you enter the real world ( if you ever do )

    You weren't here when he joined. He has heard it enough and learned from it. This does not need to be brought up again. Let the kid live man.
