Question about 1999 Ford Escort
I need instructions or a diagram for replacing the front brake caliper on a 1999 Ford Escort. Can you assist me?
Very simple. Have the proper tools for one. Two...lay cardboard down because the brake dust will make some cruddy marks on the pavement. Three...are replacing the WHOL:E caliper or just replacing/resealing the piston?
Very simple to do, just make sure you block the rear wheels or front (depending on which one you are doing).
Unbolt the two carrier bolts, one upper and one lower. These are commonly hex head or "allen" head fastners. Next, have a small container under the hose you will be disconnecting. I hope you have some help to bleed.....you will need to do so. Get the extra brake fluid ahead of time....that's all you need to do really...and once you unblot and disconnect, the brake caliper should be sitting in your lap!

Go to Auto Zone website or Advance auto and they have instruction how to remove and replace it.They also have picture of the brakes, showing you how it is done. It is a lot more detail than I can tell you here.
You would have to replace both pads.
if the rotor is worn you will need to replace it.
The library also has books on it.
When you replace the caliper, make sure you bleed the brake of all the air.

First try to confirm if you get a right brake caliper ,then confirm the brake disc ,brake pad, if they all ok, tear down the bracket of caliper, put into brake pad, then put into brake rotor.
