It's time now for new brake pads and shoes on my Taurus.
2002 Ford Taurus SEL. >82,000 miles on the clock now. <5% brake wear
left. Not bad considering the amount of miles.
I would like to buy high quality replacement parts from Autozone.

When I slip off the front caliper do I need to turn the piston to get
it to retract or do I need to use a clamp? What about removing the
shoes, any tips and/or advice?
After the replacement I will bring the car to the garage to have the
brake fluid flushed. It's a messy job that I would rather have someone
There is no repair manual out for this year model car. Next year
possibly. These cars are like fleet vehicles, thats probably why there
are no manuals since most of the repairs are done by contracters.
