Ok take off front wheels. Then remove the 2 bolts in the caliper. Thenremove the caliper from the rotor. Then remove the pad from the caliper. Then take off the brake reservoir cap that way the fluid will make its way back to the reservor, make sure you keep it off until the end of the job. Now get a c clamp and compree the piston bacl into the caliper. then replace the pads. Then put the reservor cap back on. Then pump your breaks until they get hard.

1995 Mercury Cougar does not have front wheel brake shoes. It has disc brakes and therefore disc brake pads. Copy & paste this link into your browser. http://www.advanceautoparts.com/english/youcan/html/ccr/ccr20021101db.html

the front bearings on the 1989-thru-1997 ford thunderbird/mercury cougar cannot be changed, the whole front hub comes as one piece and have to be replaced as a single unit.
