No "special" tools are needed. Metric wrenches and /or sockets are needed. A screw driver to remove brake springs, a pair of pliers and a C-clamp to compress the caliper piston (although I have also used some big channel locks and a small block of wood to do so).You'll need a small open end wrench (7 or 8mm if I remember correctly) and some clear vinyl or rubber hose (that will fit on the brake bleeder fitting) to bleed the system (bleed all four corners not just the fronts).
