How do i change emergency breaks?

How do I change emergency breaks on a 2001 Expedition?

Posted by on

  • Ronbo50 Nov 22, 2008

    My emergency brake on my 2000 expedition locked up. I dismantled the cable, but it remained locked. I did some pounding with hammer to get it partially loose. I can't get the rotor off. Can you provide some recommendations? I've heard of a star brake adjuster that might work, but can't seem to understand how you access this or how to do it. any help would be appreciated.

Take rear brakes off and they are mounted in the rotors when you remove the rotors you will see them most of them are held on by a torx screw or a 8 mm bolt

How do i remove the emergency break cable on the rear caliper of a 2001 jaguar s type?

No, you do not have to remove the emergency break cable unless you are changing the emergency break pads. The caliper acts independent of the emergency break.

How do you change emergency rear disc breaks on 2001 olds aurora

Fairly similar to regular disc brakes except that you need to turn the caliper to get it to wind back in. DON'T COMPRESS IT WITH A CLAMP AS ON THE FRONTS! This will damage the caliper.

My wifes electric sunroof on her 2001 Ford expedition will not close. How do i fix this?

it has no emergency closing procedure. It could be the switch, the motor or the module. The latter 2 are on the moon roof and you have to lower the headliner for access.

Try to by pass the switch. Before you do anything, check the fuse.

check 30 amp green maxi fuse in fuse box under hood. just above 2 rows of 4 fuses in middle.

Break lights are not working on my 2001 ford expedition

You need to replace your brake light switch which is located on your brake pedal. The reason that the right and left are out and the middle isn't is because there are two sides to the switch for vehicles with three brakes lights. It is a very easy part to replace and is relatively inexpensive. Change that switch out and you will be good to go. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Engine starts runs for 5-10 seconds then dies

Check your Emergency Fuel Shut off switch. Flip it back on and all should be good. I have an Expedition but I can't tell you where the switch is. Check the removable panels in the rear.
