Question about 2007 Ford Fusion I4 SEL Sedan
Yes, you only need to clean the surfaces where the pads rub. You can use Brake clean or Alcohol. Never anything with oil like Kerosene.
The protective surface should have come with instructions recommending cleaning the surface. The brakes might grab and smell if you do not remove the protective layer.
