  • SVT Front Brake Pads

    I have BAT Big Brake Kit FRONT (278mm) rotors on my 99 mercery mystique LS
    My Canadian supplier sold me Stoptech posiquiet exended wear ceramic FRONT pads.....part 106.0648

    Now having really hard time replacing them..i found these at Amazon.ca...it says they will fit 99 Ford Contour SVT
    Other internet sites say they only fit regular contour/mystique

    Any help clearing this up would be deeply appreciated...doug

    Doug, the pads in the BAT kit should be the same type/shape/model as your stock front pads.

      Dear Chris..Thank you so much for the reply...
      lol Chris is my "Canadian Supplier" and a dear friend that has helped me out so many times thru CTA Motorsports
      So many of the BAT parts on my Merc MystiqueSVT came thru his shop
      Late Late one cold Friday night I couldn't remove my stock Rear sway bar to install BAT 21mm bar
      Tried pulling off the wheels etc etc...was in despair..contacted Chris...PRESTO..just pull the bar straight down!!!
      Worked like a charm...
      Chris its slowly coming back into my old old brain...the BAT kit changed the rotor but I am still using my stock brake caliper thus
      my car uses STOCK Front brake pads...
      many thanks

          Doug, I am a bit envious as I have a 98 Mystique LS that looks like a twin to yours (at least it did once-mine is rusty and it does not have the SVT stuff). For some unknown reason mine has the tag riveted to the radiator support that says "CANADA" even though the car was sold new and has always resided in the states.

            radiator support that says "CANADA" Hey larsofvt sorry for late reply poor health..I forgot to get replacement coverage..lol...on this 65 yr old body....I am going to have to look for that Tag but my oldest son had a front end accident with my car.Stupidly I let the "best" bodyshop in town work on it...they used cheapo replacement parts everywhere.The headlights were the worst..took me awhile to realize why I couldn't see at night.I threw them in the garbage and got OEM units.HISTORY repeats....I always loved my Dad_ for asking if I was OK _after i damaged his new car....So 40 yrs later...I was just grateful my son was OK when he crashed my car.
