I was wondering if changing the brake pads on my 2004 altima would be the same as changing pads on any other car. I dont know if my buddy if feeding me crap or not. He said that newer vehicles equipped with abs systems need a scanner hooked up to the ecm in order to fully retract the piston into the caliper without damaging the abs system. Was my buddy feeding me a bunch of lies or do you really need special equipment nowadays to do a simple brake job?
