Question about Ford Probe
Replacing front break pads
Doing just the pads are quite easy. Where if you want the rotors turned, which is suggested in most cases, you probally don't have the tools. To do the pads, you need a hamer and a 3/8 extension. towards the cab of the explorer, you'll see the brake caliper. On each end of the caliper, you'll see these diamond shape things. Pound those out with the hammer and extension. The caliper will pop right off. fake a C vice clamp and push the caliper piston it. When that's done, you can replace pads with new ones. Make sure the pads are identical with the ones you removed, and install like the old ones were. Place caliper back on, and start the diamond clips. Those clips have some notches on each end. Those keep the clips in. Make sure those are facing away from the rotor. Then just tap them back into place. Making sure that those nothes are not under the caliper. If they are under the caliper, there's a chance of them coming out and caliper coming off while in use. Once those two clips are in, your done. A novince person can do this, espically if there is someone around to ask if problems.
