CHANGING FRONT BRAKE ON

Ford Windstar

On my ford windstar 1999 3.8 LX I tried to replace the front brake pads when I tried to push the calipers one goes in and the other one comes out so for example when I push the top calipar the bottom one come out is there anyway to prevent that from heppening

You can use the old brake pad and a c clamp
Push the two cylinders together
Hope you get what I mean
Good luck

Caliper off make sure hose not kinked place an old pad in front the caliper pistons
Using a C clamp
Turn the c clamp handle pushing in the pistons
Or u can push in one side and hold it in using a Vise Grip Pliers
and push in the other one
