Take the brake caliper off, this is the part that holds and moves the brake pads thare will be 2 bolts holding it on ,one on top one on bottom. after taking bolts loose you may half to pry the caliper up and off brake rotor. once this is done remove old pads and use a brake caliper piston retraction tool to push the piston back into the caliper. you can get this tool at your local parts store or use a C clamp with one of the old brake pads to push it back.install new brake pads and install caliper .after completion make sure you pump the brakes till you get a good pedal before moving vehicle

How do I change front four wheel drive rotors on my bronco?


Lift it up, remove the tire, remove the caliper and caliper mount bracket (2 separate pieces) then knock the rotor off, you can smack it with a hammer but if you're reusing the rotors and are just turning them dont hit them where the pads grab

Cant find the inertia switch on my 1990 ford bronco eddie bower edition


The inertia switch should be located under the drivers side dash assembly near the steering column. It is very close to your brake light switch on the brake pedal. Hope this helps.

Hi, ive worked with bikes mainly and have replaced drum and disc brakes on them. I am working with a ford bronco 2 1988 and would like to know how to replace the brakes on it. I know the front are disc and...


Not much difference replacing the lines and fluids between disk and drum brakes. Huge difference when replaceing the pads. Never force the drum over the pads with a hammer etc. Make sure to take a picture of the assembly before taking it apart when not firmiliar with something. Adjust the brake tension through the site hole once the drum is over the pads.

When doing the disk brakes, make sure that you do not push in the caliper piston at it's edge. Use a C clamp placed dead center on the piston if required. Don't push it in any more than needed.

I need to know how to replace my brake pads on a 1986 ford bronco 2 where do i loosen the brake pad assembly to get the old ones off, to put the new ones on?


I am assuming that it is only your front wheels that use brake pads. If this is so, remove the wheels and carefully observe and inspect the brake assembly. There are usually 2 bolts holding the brake caliper to the bracket on the brake disc assembly. REmove these 2 bolts and remove the caliper. The caliper will have to be removed from the bracket with a bit of force, but be careful not to allow the brake hose to be severed from the caliper. After removal of the caliper, the brake pad can be accessed better. Just pull them out because they will now be suspended into spring like clips.Install the new pads and assembly just the way they were removed. And that's it. But make sure not to cause any brake lin./hose to be severed or else brakes fluid will leak and have to be rectified, causing the brake system to be repaired

Changing brakes and rotors


Remove te cross pins that hold the caliper and the brake pads in place, then remove the caliper bracket, there are 2 bolts at the backside, then the rotro just slides off, clean any rust on the rotor mount area while the rotor is off, then using a large clamp depress the piston in the brake caliper and reinstall in reverse order, one word of caution, use quality replacement parts, Wagner is very good, if you don't use good parts you will end up with poor brake performance.
