I have a 83 Bronco 351w I am doing the brakes and the passenger side rotor needs to be replaced can someone walk me through this thanks


Personally I would replace both rotors to prevent a future brake imbalance.

* chock rear wheels, raise front of vehicle and place on stands.

* remove wheels, remove brake calliper and bracket assemblies.

* remove bearing hubs from axles, via removal of bearing adjustment nut

*remove hub seals, clean and inspect bearings, repack with HT bearing grease.

* the brake rotor bolts to the rear of the hub, you will have to remove and replace rotor to hubs, make sure all bolts are thread locked with loctite 263 and tensioned to spec.

* pack hub with grease, install seals, fitt hub assembly and adjust wheel bearing preload, install new split pins.

* fitt brake calliper and brackets, fit new brake pads,

* fitt wheels lower vehicle, test brake for function

Hope this helps..

My ford explorer 1997 is having trouble reversing on the left front side it seems it sticks on the wheel but it drives in drive perfect and just had the tranny done,so it is in the front wheel well so far


Ok, put the vehicle in park apply the parking break and jack up the front wheels using jack stands remove the front tires! On the inside of the caliper are two slidebolts and on the bottom slidebolt there should be a bolt remove it and flip the caliper up to the top your brake pads if not worn down to nothing are held in place by a caliper anchor assembly try to turn the rotor by hand counter clockwise and clockwise if it turns then go to the passenger side and repeat! If it turns the next question is do you have four wheel drive or two? If four wheel drive then turning the rotor listen for any noise like grinding if you don't hear it on either side then you have what's called a brake hose with a deviated inner lining causing fluid to reach the caliper but returning to the master cylinder slowly? Replace the calipers by swinging them back down onto the rotor making sure your brake pads are back in place the bottom slide bolt may need to be pushed in to clear the caliper! Replace your keeper bolt but do not over tighten the retaining bolt use a torque guage or try to recall how much force you exerted to loosen the bolt! Overtightening the bolt will break it and loss of braking can result! If you still cannot move in reverse then the clutches in the transmission may be worn out or the reverse gear may be worn and rebuilding the transmission is required! First see if the wheels turn while you have the tires on the vehicle usually it is a bearing or a brake pad has met the end of its lufe and needs to be replaced? I hope this helps you!

How do I get the front brake rotor off of a 2006 GMC Canyon 2 WD?


Tools Required:

Lug Removal Tool
Impact Gun(Recommended)
Sockets.. Lots of metric sockets
Ratchets
Wrenches
Porta Power(hydraulic piston) --- THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT... use to press hub off..
LOTS OF PATIENCE


Instructions:

1) Jack vehicle and support on jack stands.

2) Remove front tire.

3) Remove Front Brake caliper.. hang on frame using a bungee or other support
Important to not stress hose.

4) Remove brake pad support.

5) Remove 4 bolts from rear of hub.

6) Undo bolt for ABS sensorfrom frame, undo all clips holding wire.
Crawl under truckand unclip wire connector(trace wire from the ABS sensorto find it)

7) Make sure wire is unclipped from the frame and will not bind on removal of hub. (Prevents Damage of ABS sensor)

icon_cool.gif.pagespeed.ce.l5kzkvpb-u.gifTRICKY PART: Turn the wheels so that you can use the hydraulic porta-power against where the lower control arm mountsto the front. (Turn the
wheel left). Position porta-power to be placed inside dimple of the middle of the hub. DO NOT DAMAGE ABS SENSOR...
Pump Porta-power until hub "Pops".. be extremely careful removing the hub not to damage the ABS wireat all.. It is easy to break and not notice (I did
this and had to resplice it)

9) Hub should be removed from vehicle by this point and you can remove the six bolts holding the old rotor on. Still be careful not to damage the sensor.

10) Change the rotor. (do not use impact gun to reattach.. may strip threads)

11) Installation is basically reverse of removal.

12) Install brake pads, press caliper back in (typical brake job)

13) Put tire back on.. do other side.. and you're done.

Frontbrakes


first break the lug nuts loose. then jack the car up on the front of the side you wish to start on. Next remove the tire completely. While looking at the rotor (round thing with the lug nut studs coming off of it) you will see something either on the front side or back side that looks like it is hugging the rotor. That is a brake caliper. On the back side of that caliper there should be two bolt's one on top one on bottom. Remove those bolts. In most cases the part the bolts where going through actually have a sliding action you will want to slide them back away from the rotor. Now pull the caliper off. Use a 4 inch C clamp and put the piece with the threads on it into the cup on the inside of the caliper and the top fixed piece of the C clamp on the opposite side (careful not to put it on anything that can break) slowly turn your C clamp handle until you have backed the caliper all the way back into itself. Now the easy part. slid the old brake pads out and the new ones in their place. Bolt the caliper back on and repeat these steps on the other side. NOTE: make sure when you are done you pump the brakes a few times before you move the vehicle so that the calipers can adjust back out to the break pads otherwise you'll have no breaks at first.

Are the bolts to remove the front rotors on a 2004 mitsubishi endeavor reverse threaded


never seen left handed threads on a brake disk ,use a impact driver as they are tight to remove and if that doesnt move them drill the head off ,the wheel nuts will hold it all in place ,some cars like fiats do not even have a retaing screw

How do i replace front rotor in 2004 toyota sienna


1. Put your car on a level spot for safety and start your car Sienna.
2. For left front rotor, turn your steering wheel to the left all the way and stop the engine. DO NOT put emergency brake on! Put stopping blocks on the passenger front front, rear right and rwear left for safety.
3. Half loosen all front left tire nuts and jack up the left front then loosen all nuts and take the wheel off.
4. Use a 3" G-clamp from Lowes, Home Depot or any store near you, press against brake cylinder so that brake fluid flows back to its reservoir
4. Remove one bolt on the caliper and the other bolt loosen and lift the caliper with the other bolt on and rest on a block. Do not take the rubber hose off nor attend to loosen any brake fluid pipes and nuts.
5. Remove brake pads and remove the nuts on the rotor, done.
If you need further assitance please let me know and if this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution accordingly. Thanks, Midwest-tek

Front brakes on these cars are very simply.

1) Chock the back wheels and put the ebrake on
2) Loosen the front lug nuts (19MM)
3) Jack car up and place on jack stands, make sure car is secure
4) Remove front wheels.
5) Start on the drivers side and look at the top of the caliper
6) There is a bolt that the head is facing in towards the car it is 14MM
7) Loosen that bolt until it stops moving out, it is a slider pin and needs to be pulled out the rest of the way once the threads are no longer holding it in
8) Grab the top of the caliper (not the bracket the caliper bolts to the knuckle with) and pull towards the left till the caliper rotates down
9) Remove both pads by sliding them in towards each other and out of the clips that hold them
10) Take a C-Clamp and press the piston back in by putting one side of the c-clamp into the bore of the piston and the other side on the caliper outside and compress the piston till it bottoms out.
11) Remove c-clamp and the piston will stay where it is
12) Put new pads into the clips just the opposite you took them out.
13) Fold caliper back into bracket.
14) Lube the SMOOTH part of the slider pin you took out earlier with caliper grease. Get it nice and lubed, BUT NOT THE THREADS and reinsert the pin and push it in and then tighten it down, about 30-40 foot pounds is plenty. I think the manual calls for 32.

If you're replacing the rotors as well then instead of doing this first simply pull the entire caliper and bracket off by removing the two larger bolts on the inside of the bracket that attach it to the knuckle. Then hang the caliper and bracket assembly on the springs by tying it with wire so you do not put stress on the brake line.

Then do the passenger side.

When you put the wheels back on and get everything tight get in the car and continually pump the brakes to get them to contact the rotors again since they were bottomed out. The pedal should come back after 4 or 5 pumps of the pedal.

Bed in your brakes by doing a series (5 or so) stop from 50MPH to 5MPH and DO NOT STOP in between and then go on a drive to let them cool down and then come back home and park the car. Try not to hold the brake when you are stopped at all during this or else you won't properly bed in your pads and you'll have problems shortly.

Hello. I am replacing the front disc brake rotors


there is probably alot of rust on the hub that is 'holding' your rotors on the hub. The slotted holes are for inserting 2 bolts in and trying to press the rotor off the hub assembly. If you can't get bolts in the threaded holes then move on to a big hammer and beat the rotor on the backside and rotate the rotor to get it off evenly or you'll just wedge it on. thats about all you can do at this point! BUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE NEW ROTORS FIRST AND THAT THERE CORRECT FOR YOUR VEHICLE BEFORE DAMAGING THE EXISTING ROTORS!!!!

Chances are your rotor is rusted to the drive axle. Another thing is there might be 4-bolts securing the rotor to the hub. Unless you get those bolts off, the roror won't come off. If you have Haynes manual, it is a good guide because you see things in detail.
