This is not a real tough job but there are so many little things that will arise as you go. There are quite a few good videos on YouTube that I would start with and from there post more specific questions on here to fill in the gaps once you have a base knowledge. I would be glad to help from there.

Where do i find pictures of a 1996 ford rear drum brakes shoes exposed (change out)

I agree with Terry. The best diagram you could possibly have for assembling your brakes is on the other side of your truck. The only thing is that you need to remember the when you do it this way, it is a "mirror" image. The stuff on the left side on one side of the truck goes on the right side on the other side of the truck and visa-versa.
Another option for diagrams and disassembly/assembly instructions is For a small anual fee, you can have access to all of the PROFESSIONAL repair information that I would use if you were to bring your truck to my shop for repair. Well worth the cost if you like to do your own service work! You can save more than the fee costs in a single brake job.

How do i change the brake switch on my 1996 ford explorer

Remove the panel under the dash above the brake pedal, lock up and you will see the switch on the brake pedal arm, you must remove the retainer cip as shown in the diagram below, it is #2. The switch is #6 in the diagram, it is a 15 minute job. I will caution you that the problem here is often not the brake light switch but the 2 wire connector to it, the copper wire conductor inside the outer plastic insulator breaks, so use a 12 volt test light ($4 at Autozone) to verify that you have power into the switch, if you do check the dead wire out of the switch to make sure the conductor is intact before you replace the switch. You can easily do this by removing the connector from the switch and putting a paper clip in it to see if the brake lights come on, if they do the brake light switch is the problem, if not then go to Ford and buy a repair connector for the brake light switch. Solder the new connector on (if needed) don't use crimp connectors.

you don't repair it, you replace it. jack it up, remove the brakes, and all the brake assembly from that axle,, then remove the bearing cap,, cotter pin, and nut from the spindle , ( you might want to replace the wheel bearing at the same time due to the bad axle ) remove the axle bolts,, and shock bolts, from the axle beam. remove axle beam assembly

I need the instructions on how to replace the front and rear brake pads and shoes for a 1996 ford windstar

Look on for your particular vehicle. There are a lot of great videos on there. Brake jobs are pretty straight forward. On a 1996 mini van I am guessing you have disk brakes in the front and drums in the rear. Disk brakes are a breeze to work on. Two bolts to take your calipers off, pop out your old pads and pop in the new ones. Drums on the other hand, can be a pain in the rear, literally. The brake drums have a tendancy to rust in such a way that they become one with the hub. A good gear puller and a brass hammer can do wonders in this case. Also most new brake kits come with fairly decent installation instructions to help you out.
