Front Disc's and Pads on 2000 Focus

Hi,
I'm going to be attempting to replace the front disc's and pads on my 2000/W Focus at the weekend. Being my first time at fitting brakes, has anyone got
any hot tips?
I have a Torque Wrench. Are there any other specialist tools I might need for the job?
Thanks,
Mark

go to walgreens or the dollar store and buy a big plastic turkey baster( looks like a real big eye dropper) use to remove almost all the old brake fluid thats in the master cylinder) so that when you use the C clamp to shove the pistons back into the calipers the brake fluid will not run over and leak all over the place around the master cylinder)... and when you finshed putting the new pads on make sure you top off the master cylinder with new fluid(dont ever resue the old fluid).........

Thanks for the advice guys.
I did the brakes to today, no problems. I had to bash the old discs off with a hammer as they where jammed on. Also, couldn't get my hands on a 'C' clamp, so I just used a big screwdriver to lever the piston back in.
Sucked out a little excess break fluid and everything is working fine.
Thanks again.
