Is it a simple job to replace front brake pads on a 2001 Focus, any surprises in store?

Very easy to do, no suprises or hidden extras :lol:

You will need a 7mm Allen key though

Use a wire coat hanger, and bend it into an S Shape, hook it over the suspension and then once you have undone the Allen key and removed the caliper, hang the caliper (with sufficient flexibility in the hose) and work on it there - just make sure you do not dangle the hose or the calipers by the hose... :)
