i need to replace my rear brake pads and while i'm at it have the brake fluid changed.

I figure on doing the pads myself. I've done the front rotors on my G, and the front disc pads on a honda civic. Any recommendation or specific tools to do the pads on the G?...

I'll probably just have my shop do the brake fluid... assuming they've done work on say an ML430, any reason they would have trouble with the G?

Oh, i'm going to have them replace the transmission fluid and filter too, same story, at the least i know they've done it on their ml430, i've got Dutch's instructions to show them some concerns of mine, but anybody think its a bad idea letting them do it?

Thanks a bunch ahead of time.

I am not sure how the newer ones are but my rear brakes were an SOB. The pads had to be removed from the old ones and riveted on to the old steel. I also had to replace the actuator due to leaking and not being able to get all the air out of the lines. Nothing like any other vehicle I have done!
