I just did this recently too.  PDQSHIP is right, it really is a simple 
undertaking, considering the alternatives.  I was nervous before I 
started, especially yanking on that horn pad!  (Now I've done it almost 
1/2 doz. times eradicating them Audi gremlins!)  One word of advice in 
advance, you need a big socket and extension to get the wheel off the 
hub, I'm pretty sure it's a 26mm socket.  Probably the only use you'll 
ever have for a socket that big though!
