AWESOME! Thanks, Does anyone clean the center hub area? Mine is all rusty. Just a wire brush?

My son and I tackled this job this weekend... Truly our first "real" DIY job. I'm not completely inept at mechanical stuff, but this was the first time doing brakes. It was an awesome little project, and as easy as everyone says! Thanks for all of the advice on the forum, great time spent with a 17 year old gear head, and saved $ in the process! (Which is good, since taking the wheels off i realized i need new rear tires!)

Thanks for posting the video. I've not brakes many times and was looking to see there was anything unique o Porsche. Looks pretty basic, especially if your not removing brake line from the caliper.

I am as clumsy as I am dumb, and even I did the brakes on my 2000 no problem. Hardest part is (and always be) getting the caliper bolts off, especially if you drive on the east coast like me. Porsche recommends changing these bolts with every brake job, and at $5 - $7 a piece I don't see why you wouldn't.
