I'm guessing you have disc brakes in the front of the Explorer. If so, you need to unscrew the two bolts that hold the caliper on.(they'll be either hex or allen bolts) If the caliper does not slide off, take a C=clanp and slowly back the piston down on the caliper. This should free up the caliper so that it can be removed. Make sure you grease the slider pins for the caliper when you reassenble.

I find it easier to use a "C" clamp to push the piston back in so the new pads, which are going to be thicker slip in easier.

Hope this helps...I know it's extremely difficult to find manuals for these cars. These instructions are straight out of the factory service manual.
