2002 Lincoln Continental Q&A

2002 Lincoln Continental Question: Brakes

Is the replacement of the rear pads and rotors too difficult a job for home repair? -
Answer 1
Not at all. All you need to do is to remove the brake caliper and pads off of the old rotor, it is usually two bolts and then slip the old rotor off. sometimes you might need to tap it with a hammer but it will come off. -
Answer 2
You may have to 'rotate in' the brake caliper piston. ( usually clockwise) This is for the parking brake which is integral or inside each rear caliper. -
