Remove the tire and wheel from your 1999 Mercury Cougar. Remove the brake spring and the break caliper. The brake pads will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake pads.

Get a big 6" or 8" C-clamp, put one of the old pads over the piston and compress the piston back in. Make sure you don't put the clamp on a brake line or fitting or you might snap it off.

For the 1999 cougar they have 2 different size brake rotors it sounds like you need the 276mm size
