Customer Question

I have a 1995 Lincoln Town Car with disc brakes on front and back. I replaced the front ones no problem. Just loosened the the 2 bolts and removed assembly to change pads. However on the rear I can't see any bolts and was puzzled on how to get them off. Can anyone help?

  1. Remove rear disc brake caliper locating pins (2B296) .
  2. Lift rear disc brake caliper (2553) assembly from rear disc brake caliper anchor plate (2B582) and rear disc brake rotor (2C026) using a rotating motion.
  3. CAUTION: Do not pry directly against plastic rear disc brake piston and adjuster (2B588) or damage to piston will occur.

    Remove inner and outer brake shoe and lining (2001) assemblies.
  4. Inspect both rear disc brake rotor braking surfaces. Minor scoring or buildup of lining material does not require machining or replacement of rear disc brake rotor . Hand sand glaze from both rear disc brake rotor braking surfaces using garnet paper 100-A (medium grit) or aluminum oxide 150-J (medium).
  5. Suspend rear disc brake caliper with wire. Use care not to damage rear disc brake caliper or stretch rear wheel brake hose (2A442) .
