I know several people have been asking about changing front brakes on their cars. We've got a good write up in the Wiki, but I found a video demonstration.

I found in my random grazing of the internet that Advance Auto Parts has video clinics available on their website, downloadable as podcasts, or watchable as streaming video online. Conveniently, their video on changing disc brakes uses a Taurus SEL.

They skip greasing the slider pins and you don't have to put the little retainer clips back on (my car didn't even have them to begin with), but it gives a pretty good video overview of how everything goes together and what needs to be done.

Here's the link

Click on "Current Videos" at the bottom of the page, and it will take you to all the how-to videos. I just thought it was useful that they used a Taurus for the demonstration.
