Question about 1997 Mercury Villager
Need to replace the pads and shoes on 1997 mercury villager, but am now living and driving this car here in england.
anyone know if these pads are used on other cars as this make and model was never marketed here so local spare shops do not carry parts for it.
You can buy them on EBay and have them shipped to you. Try to get a name brand like Bosch, Ford, Kelsey Hayes, Nissan (Quest is same vehicle). Cheap ones make noise & don't last long.
search on ebay motors and type in villager quest bakes.

The rear brakes do not require manual adjustment. Adjust the shoes by sharply applying the brake pedal several times while driving the vehicle alternately forwards and backwards. Check the brake operation by making several stops while driving forward. The self-adjusting mechanism will sufficiently adjust the rear brake shoes without any manual tightening at the brake shoe adjuster. If the rear brake shoes are manually adjusted, the additional action of the brake shoe adjuster can cause the brakes to become over-tightened and result in binding or overheated rear brakes.
Hope this helps.
