The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

They have to be pressed out mechanically. Mitsubishi blew it on this design.

You have to remove bolts located behind headlight and on the core support. The best book I have found is the clymer repair manual about $20 at parts stores

Under the hood, front driver's side of the engine compartment. Follow the brake lines from the master cylinder they lead to the ABS.

Purchase front brake pads for a Lincoln Mark VII with ABS. Purchase DOT 3 brake fluid for a Lincoln Mark VII with ABS. Purchase a disc brake piston tool. Park the vehicle. Disconnect the battery. Raise and support the front of the vehicle. Remove the wheels. Remove 1/2 of the brake fluid from the reservoir and disguard. Remove the caliper pins. Raise and support the caliper. Remove the outer brake pad. Return the inner brake pad and piston into the caliper with a disc brake piston tool. Remove the inner pad. Install new brake pads. Fill brake fluid to correct level. Reassemble. NOTE: Be sure to use metallic pads - you won't get the brake dust mess on your rims.
