SOURCE: rear brakes on 1998 mercury sable

I've done it and hated every minute of it.

Get a quality brake piston rotator tool. The Autozone 5 sided cube is no good.

you will have to spin the piston back about 4-5 turns until it fully retracts.

The expanding/ 500lb pressure clamps do no good b/c the brake is like a hydraulic screw. You can't compress this type of brake.
Starting the rotation of the piston back will require two people

1 to hold the tool and ratchet on the piston, the other to turn the ratchet.

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

SOURCE: Where is the transmission fluid drain plug for a 2000 Cougar

Your Ford has no drain plug, to change/drain the trans fluid u must remove the transmission pan, u may be able to lower fluid level with a fluiod siphon pump (rated for oil) through the dipstick tube, harbor freight tools sells a pump for this purpose.
