I have a 99 expedition and just replaced my front brakes and ball joints over Thanksgiving. To remove the rotors, you need to first remove the calipers. There are two 3/4" bolts and two #45 star-head screws behind the rotors. Remove these and you can then pry the calipers off your rotors. Then just pull off your olds rotors and replace them with new ones. You can also take your rotors to placese like Autozone to see if they can be turned, but I knew mine were bad because my brakes were grinding and I could feel ridges on them. If using new rotors, make sure you clean them with brake cleaner and wipe thoroughly. I used semi-metallic brake pads (mid grade). It was pretty straight forward. Hope this helps.

They get rusted to the hub. Try heat and a large hammer.

Brake rotor removal


you shouldn't need any special tool all you have to do is remove the caliper assembly of the rotor and the rotor should come right off. If not then the rotor should come off if a there is a nut holding it on there

Can you tell me if it takes special tools to remove the rear brake hub and brake line


No, there are no special tools required beyond everyday hand tools.

Raise the vehicle.
Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle If the vehicle is equipped with rear drum brakes, remove any retainer clips from the wheel mounting studs, then pull the brake drum off the hub and bearing.
If the vehicle is equipped with rear disc brakes perform the following:
Remove the two guide pin bolts securing the front disc brake caliper to the steering knuckle.
Remove the disc brake caliper from the knuckle and brake rotor.
Hang the caliper out of the way using a wire hanger or cord. Do not support the caliper by letting it hang by the hydraulic hose.
Remove any retainer clips from the wheel mounting studs, then pull the brake rotor off the hub and bearing.
Remove the dust cap from the hub and bearing assembly
Remove the retaining nut, then the hub and bearing from the knuckle's spindle

Front brake rotor removal


Your rotors have an integrated hub with serviceable bearing.

Remove the six bolts around the center of the hub and pry off the grease cover.

behind it you will find a locking wheel with two philips screws holding it in position. Remove the screws and unscrew the locking wheel.

Behind is a large axle locknut that requires a special tool to remove. It has two small holes to grip with. Unscrew it and you will be able to remove the outer bearing, then slide the rotor off the spindle/axle.

From there you can unbolt the rotor disc from the hub backside, or replace the whole unit. Replacing the whole unit will require installing new bearings/races, however.

Either method will require repacking the bearings and loading the bearings with the special locknut tool.

How to replace front brakes on 2004 BMW 325ci


If it's like most BMW brake rotors you don't remove the center nut to remove the rotor. You should see a slotted screw in the rotor a couple of inches out from the center. Remove it and the rotor comes off. Might have to tap rotor with a rubber mallet but it should come right off.
