Question about 1993 Ford Tempo
Bcause here are a lot of details its best to buy a 20$ manual from an autoparts store that will walk you step by step through this for your specific car and for the price of the book it's worth it if you plan on keeping your car awhile. However, it is straight forward and really in my oppinion if you can change oil you can change most brakes. SAFETY FIRST block your tires and use car stands or blocks of wood so if something goes bead you still have all your body parts.
Once tires are off you will have to undo the caliper that holds your brakes pads on. Normally 2 bolts. If blessed they are a #10mm or other similar size hex. If not it might be a ?torque? (I call it a star bolt it looks like a starinside) head bolt. Once caliper is off you will have to push the cylinder back in on it. THere is a tool designed for this and makes the job simpler. Hint-buy quality tools in most cases they are worth it most have a LLT warranty and won't break as easy. (caftsman/stanley). When pushing cylinder back make sure resivoir cap is loose so fluid goes bac easily. Check rotors most likely they will need replaced. They usually just get pulled off or use a plastic mallet. put all new stuff on in reverse order. Double check everything to make sure its tight and cap is tight. Tobe more detailed I'd have to write atleast 3x this. So i highly suggest a book (worth the money) or a friend to walk you through this. I've been working on cars for almost 20 years so for what its worth with a little desire, the right tools and the manuel you can do this.
