I spent an extra 2-3 hours total between the two sides to get these back on properly, even after figuring it out on the first one.
Also be sure to put pressure on the piston as you rotate it or it will not compress.

|flawedexistence||Just redid my pads and hoses today and this how-to was a great help. I bought new rotors too but couldn't get the d#$m caliper bracket bolts loose to install them. Oh well, off to the Ford dealer! Great job and thanks again........|

Thank you Sldghmr...I wound up drilling one of the guides out, the other I was able to heat up and chisel out...I bought new guides from a local aftermarket store...I will definitely give rockauto a look...thank you again

|jasonbi||the only thing to add to this would be to line up the notch on the lower back portion of the pad with the triangular opening on the caliper piston.....if not the pad might not sit flat on the rotor.|
