How do i replace rear brake pads off a 1995 ford contour


Check this REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1, 2 and 3 / click over images for zoom )

CAUTION Older brake pads or shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.
  1. Remove 1 / 2 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Remove the cotter pin and guide pin.

Fig. 1: Rear disc brake components

  1. Remove the caliper locating pin cover and remove the locating pin.
  2. Swing the rear disc brake caliper away from the brake rotor and anchor plate. There is no need to remove the parking brake cable or brake hose.
  3. Remove the inner and outer disc brake pads.
To install:
  1. If installing new disc brake pads, use rear caliper piston adjuster T87P-2588-A or similar tool, to rotate the rear disc brake piston clockwise, retracting the caliper piston. This will allow room for the new brake pads.

Fig. 3: Use the adjuster tool to rotate the piston into the caliper

  1. Install the inner and outer disc brake pads.
  2. Swing the rear disc brake caliper back into position over the disc brake pads.
  3. Clean the locating pin threads and apply 1 drop of a thread locking agent or similar sealer.
  4. Apply a small amount of disc brake caliper slide grease to the shaft of the locating pin.
  5. Reinstall the locating pin and torque to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  6. Reinstall the guide pin and the cotter pin.
  7. Adjust the parking brake by operating the parking brake control several times.
  8. Reinstall the wheel and tire assembly. Torque the lug nuts to 62 ft. lbs. (85 Nm).
  9. Lower the vehicle.
  10. Adjust the parking brake by operating the parking brake control several times.
  11. Pump the brake pedal several times to achieve a good pedal before attempting to move the vehicle.
  12. Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder fluid reservoir and add fluid as necessary.
  13. Road test the vehicle and check for proper brake system operation.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

My car seems to warp front discs? Serviced the


Check your rear brakes. If the rears are not adjusted or functioning properly, they will put more strain on the front brakes, thus heating the rotors up too fast. Since the rotors in the front cannot dissipate the heat fast enough, they will most likely continue to warp until the problem with the rear brakes is fixed. Always remember: when installing brakes you need to lube all of the key points. On disc brakes, lube the area where the pads sit in the hangar, make sure the clips are free of dirt and rust. Lube the pad backing (not the part that contacts the rotor!) and be sure to remove and lube the sliding pins on the caliper well. I personally like using AGS's Sil Glyde or CeramLube. These withstand heat the best. On drums, lube the metal side of the shoe that contacts the backing plate, and be sure to lube your adjusters well. Also, very important: if you have rear drums, make sure they are adjusted the right way, you dont want them to drag, but you dont want to go thru another set of front rotors again! Good luck, 99% of the time, too much focus is put on the front brakes and not the rears. Focus on the rears!

Thanks for asking!

You got shutter ......do you mean shudder when braking and if so the problem with your brakes are that the pads dont work well with the rotors (dont care what the makers say) just see if you can get your self a set of PRIME disc pads and fit them to the front and make sure that the whole unit are bolted on tight and no movement in wheel bearings....

Parking or emergency Brake problem


Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.

Brake Problem


hi im dave
hope i can help
when you had the rear pads applied and the discs turned was there noticeable damage to the disc surface it sounds like your e brake cable is not adjusted properly or perhaps the braided wires inside the insulation are seperating along your brake cable causing the rear brakes to not be adjsting themselves properly. Every time the parking brake is applied the rear brakes are self adjusted if they arent being applied due to slack in or a broken cable you will not adjust your rear brakes. This would accont for the flutter in the brake pedal as hydraulic fluid is still circulating to compress the pads against the rotor but the pads arent reaching the rotor.
