Question about 2003 Ford Expedition
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.
