Take off the one nut/locator pin, then smack the rotor hub with a hammer, it will come off. It's just a bit rusted to the hub. Make sure you clean the rust off the hub before re-installing the rotor.

I am replacing disc brakes on a 2006 E-150 Ford Van I can't get the caliber off the rotor I removed the 2 bolts and can't not pull it off. I tried tapping with mallet. Am I missing any other bolts?

The pads are hung on the outer ridge on the rotors,
because you don't take them apart once a year and
knock down the ridge,clean off all rust,inspect and
lube things

Use a wide screw driver or small pry bar between
the old pad and rotor to compress the piston

98 Ford Escort, Emergency brake doesn't hold car. Rear brakes okay, adjusted cable to 3 clicks. What am I looking for?

If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.

The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.

The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.

Those are the things you need to look for.

How to change front brake rotor on 2000 ford taurus wagon cause front wheel shake when brake apply

Remove both caliper mounting bolts should be 12 or 13 mm bolts. Next remove both caliper mounting bracket bolts 15mm. Rotor should then pull off. If not use large hammer and hit the face off the rotor hub between the wheel studs until it comes loose. Make sure the face of the wheel hub is free of rust between the wheel studs and use high temp anti seize around the center circle of the wheel studs.

I need to take off my rear disc to get to my rear disc cover as it is loose and making an awfull sound i have taken everything of apart from the big bolt holding the disc on in the centre if i take the...

you dont take off the nut in the middle! there should be 2 set screws to hold to rotor in place. the inside of the rotor acts like the parking brake drum. you will need to chalk the wheels and release the e-brake. they do sometimes stick therefore you will need to take a thick piece of wood and place it on the back side of the rotor and hit moderately with a hammer till it comes loose. it will then be necessary to pull off square due nto the e brake assembly inside. nothing too fancy however you will now need to retorque that nut to about 200-250 ft lbs. be careful.

My 2000 Lincoln Ls makes grinding noise underneath car

There are several things that can do that. Have someone check the Emergency brake system behind the rear rotors. They are often missed by repairmen and when they fall apart inside the drum part of the rotor they will jam and grind. Also service regular brakes.

Your universal joints could be dry and failing. You could have a loose heat deflector or rear stabilizer bar dragging. Your exhaust system could be dragging.

Remove and replace rotor on the front of an LX station wagon

Start by jacking the car up, place on jack stands for safwety, You will see the brake calaper which holds in the shoes, you will see two bolts which holds the brakes together, remove these bolts, then remove the pads. Remopve the bolt and pen holding the rotor on, take the rotor to a brake shop, see if it can be turned instead of having to purchase a new one. When replacing the brake pads you will have to use one of the pads to push the pressure plate back into the calaper to replace the pads. You may want to remove some of the brake fluid so it wont over flow when doing this.

The rear rotors on my Volvo v70 wagon are rusty! What can cause both rear calipers to stop working. Car has 70,000 miles on it.

your rear caliper adjustment is made by using the parking brake,if you don't use it on a regular basis it can cause the rear brakes to not work properly or at need to use the parking brake regularly to avoid may try working the parking brake repeatedly to try and adjust the rear brakes,if that works you may notice your brake pedal is higher or firmer.

Rear brakes / bearing area bad vibration, now clanging...

I'd certainly take a look at the driveshaft "U" joints. as well as rear brakes. I'm surprised you didn't have to replace rotors, because if they were heated up that bad, it's hard to believe they aren't warped.Also, when you have rear wheels off for inspection, double check for any axle seals leaking, as well level in housing
