Has anyone replaced the rear brake pads on a Scarabeo similar to mine? The pad on one side looks like it's completely gone and the rear brake makes a scraping noise if I come down a long steep hill, like we have plenty of around here. The one I live on, for example.
My shop manual doesn't say a word about how to change the pads, only how to remove the caliper assembly, which I have already done to check the pads since I can't see them when it's on the bike. Is it easy to do? Where can I get the pads? Anything I need to be especially aware of? Can I do it without opening the hydraulics and having to bleed the system? Is this something I should have the shop do, brakes being rather important after all, or is it a straightforward home garage project?
Thanks in advance, fellers. And gals, if there are any here.
