1999 Ford Contour Brake and rotor removal
This is a Contour and my neighbor asked me to install brakes and new rotors. In the video you can see that if this were a simple brake job you would remove the tire and use a t45 torx bit, 3/8 drive ratchet,short 3/8 drive extension,pry bar (large screw driver),either a c-clamp or a caliper tool to compress the piston in the caliper.
If you are replacing the rotor you must also have a 15mm socket a breaker bar and some muscle lol. You need these tools to remove the caliper mounting bracket so you can remove the rotor.
If you notice that the rotor in this video was stuck you were absolutely correct. I had to use some PB Blaster and a 4lbs. sledge hammer to remove the rotors on this car. This happens some times and can be avoided by using Antisense on the hub flange where the rotor sits on and the hub that sticks out through the rotor. I didn't show the almost 2 hours of hammering it took to remove the rotor.
Reassembly is reverse order of disasembly.

First video ever. Recorded by my lovely assistant on my phone.
This is for those who own one and have no idea how to put the brakes back on after fighting to get them off. It is not a full tutorial as I forgot to record it until I was almost done, but I had to start all over because I didn't do it this way the first time.
It cuts out during the last spring. Basically I had to bend the hook back into place and then press it in with a flat head screwdriver. Then you just tweak the adjuster, position the shoes on the plate with all the springs attached and put the drum on. Of course if you remove the wheel cylinders like I did then you'll have to install them as well. Remember to bleed the brakes. I used a vise-grip on the brake lines to keep the fluid from draining out when I removed the cylinders, that way you don't have to bleed the entire system, just the backs and it only takes a few pumps of the brake pedal to do it.
Ford Contour SVT 80-143mph
Due to my previous videos of this being hard to see, I replaced the dash lights and did it again just to prove the top speed.
ford contour problem
This is what happens when i drive my car for about 30 mins and turn it on again, sometimes it shuts off while driving, IAC valve is new, got new MAF sensor about 2 months ago, and when checking the computer, it indicates oxygen sensor group 2 sensor 1, catalyst group 2 and system lean 1 and 2, could this things be causing the car problem?
