SLK 320 front rotors (discs) change

Is there a 'how to' on how to change the front rotors and pads? It isn't so much the method I need but the tools required. I am trying to get everything together before I start, but I feel I will probably need more than just a big copper/hide mallet and a sense of humour! I have done a search, but can't find anything specific to the 320.

Thanks in advance.

There's one forum member Bradley61496. He has changed his rotors to EBC ones. You might want to PM him and ask questions since he already has an idea

Thanks, but these are not 320 specific, but do give a good general idea. I need to know the tools required ie. what size is the screw that holds the rotor to the hub and socket sizes etc?
