The brake rotors and pads DIY is here.

The brake pad reset procedure is exactly the same as the oil, you just reset on a different icon. If the numbers are positive then that is the mileage until the pads need replacement. If your numbers are negative before and after the reset keep trying the procedure a few times. I have had cases where it took 2 or 3 resets before it actually "took". You should see a positive number around 32,000.
