REPLACING FRONT BRAKE PAD AND ROTORS

2007 Ford Taurus

Brakes problem
2007 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles

I have replaced front brakes and rotors on several cars in the past. 1997 Ford Contour, 2002 Ford Escape, and 2002 Ford Focus all had the calipers and pads on the back side of the rotor or wheeel. The 2007 Ford Taurus I have now has the caiper and pads on the front of the wheel assembly. Can you help me in what I need to do to remove the pads and caliper to replace?

I don't understand what your issue is with the caliper being mounted on the front side of the rotor instead of the rear. You still just remove 2 bolts to get the caliper off, 2 more to get the bracket off and then the rotor slides off.
