Essentially the same. It can get a little complicated getting the small pads into those small calipers. That's about it.

I would be happy to help you. PM me and I will either do it for you or walk you through how it goes.
As mentioned it's not difficult.

Go to an auto prts store and buy some Nitrile gloves. They are thin rubber but durable, if they are the right size it's almost like not wearing them and they will keep the grime from making your hands and nails grubby.
that brake crud is hard to get out from under your fingernails and out of the pores in your skin...
