Is it hex (like an allen screw) or is it a Torx or Torx plus? Torx are serrated.

The pins / wedges just tap out use a scewdriver on the metal edge of the pin just tap it out to the rear and when putting them back in just tap them back in from the front. You will see they are diamond shape and metal cased around rubber very easy to do just take your time.

SOURCE: cant remove front brake discs on ford focus

if you are trying to save the rotors,put a block of wood against the rotor and hit it a few times hard on the top then to the bottom,then the sides providing that it doesnt turn around.if you hit the center be very careful not to hit the lug bolts,it sometimes helps to put 2 lugnuts back on to help protect the stud.

SOURCE: Hello, I have an 89 ford bronco II with a 2.9

Could be that you have one or more brake lines rotting internally and plugging the line. Check for a soft spot in the brake lines.

How do i remove the brake caliper on a 1994 f350 4x4 there are no bolts attaching it


If this is a Pin Slider, here is 1996 steps:

Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1996 F-150, F-250, F-350 4x2, 4x4, Bronco and F-Super Duty Vehicles Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Caliper
Heavy-Duty Rail Slider, F-Super Duty
Replace brake shoe and lining (2001) as follows when the lining is worn to a minimum thickness of 0.794mm (1/32 inch) above the front disc brake rotor shield. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel (1007).
Removal
  1. To avoid fluid overflow when the caliper pistons are pressed into the caliper cylinder bores, siphon or dip part of the brake fluid out of the brake master cylinder reservoir (2K478). Discard the removed fluid.
  1. Raise the vehicle and install safety stands. Remove the front wheel and tire assembly.
  1. Place an appropriate size C-clamp on the disc brake caliper with end of clamp against caliper and end of screw against outer shoe. Tighten the clamp to bottom the caliper pistons in the cylinder bores. Remove the clamp. Do not use a screwdriver or similar tool to pry caliper pistons (2196) away from the front disc brake rotor (1125).




  1. Clean excess dirt from area around pin tabs.
  1. Tap upper caliper pin toward inboard side until pin tabs touch the front wheel spindle.
  1. Using Hydraulic Caliper Pin Remover D89T-2196-A or equivalent and a light hammer, drive the pin from the disc brake caliper as follows:
    1. Position the notched end of the tool against the caliper pin (retention tab half), at a 45-degree angle from the pin retention tabs.



    1. Tap the tool with the hammer to compress the retention tabs.



    1. As the retention tabs are compressed, move the tool to gain a straight approach to the caliper pin, and continue tapping to drive the caliper pin through the caliper/spindle groove.
  1. Repeat removal procedure for lower caliper pin.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not let the disc brake caliper hang by the front brake hose (2078). The front brake hose could become stretched or twisted which can cause the front brake hose to leak and rupture, resulting in failure.
    Remove the disc brake caliper from the front disc brake rotor. If the disc brake caliper is to be removed for service, remove the front brake hose from the disc brake caliper. Plug the end of the front brake hose to prevent fluid loss and entry of air into the system. If the disc brake caliper is not to be removed, wire it up to the frame of the vehicle to avoid damage to the front brake hose.
Installation
stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel.
  1. NOTE: There is a raised section at one end of each shoe so installation can be made in one direction only.

    Install new inner and outer lining.
  1. Lubricate the knuckle upper and lower inner pad grooves and caliper grooves with Disc Brake Caliper Slide Grease, Silicone Dielectric Compound D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A. Install the disc brake caliper on a front wheel spindle, making sure the mounting surfaces are free of dirt.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not allow the tabs of the caliper pin to be tapped too far into the spindle groove. If this happens it will be necessary to tap the other end of the caliper pin until the tabs snap into place. The tabs on each end of the caliper pin must be free to catch on the spindle flanks.
    Position caliper pin with the pin retention tabs oriented adjacent to the spindle groove.
  1. Tap the caliper pin on the outboard end with a hammer. Continue tapping the caliper pin inward until the retention tabs on the sides of the caliper pin contact the spindle face. Repeat procedure for the lower caliper pin.

Bought a 1990 Bronco II from one of my troops and somehow he drove it over here. It's a manual transmission as well. But once I put it in first gear, it feels like something is stopping it going forward....


It sounds like you may have a brake caliper sticking (if the issue is really coming from the front). Does it pull in one direction? One way to check is to jack the front end up and try to spin each tire by hand. They should turn relatively freely. Another possibility, and more likely from your description, is that the rear emergency / parking brake may be frozen. Drum brakes, by nature, do a better job of holding the vehicle from rolling forward. If your emergency / parking brake is engaged, either frozen or inadvertently left on, I would expect the symptoms you describe- moving in reverse, but not forward. You can check this the same way- jack up the rear end of the vehicle, put it in neutral, and try spinning the rear tires by hand.

Assuming your vehicle is a 4x4, a less likely scenario is that something's gone awry in the transfer case, front differential, axles, hubs.

Good luck.

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.

Changing the rotors out on my 83 4x4 bronco


I would start with the simplest of solutions and try bleeding the breaks and checking the lines for any leaks. Second, if the brakes were properly bled and there is no leak apparent, I would remove the front caliper on the left side, and have a friend pump the brakes, and see if there is pressure on the caliper itself. It is likely that you may have broken or otherwise damaged a brake line, or the caliper simply chose this mos inconvenient of times to die.

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.

1986 Ford Bronco front calipar replacement instructions


Detailed? OK...

First take off the wheel and set aside. Then, look for the two pins that hold the caliper on; there is one on the top and one on bottom. They are made of tow peices that can be squeezed together at the end and then pushed out the back or front. The caliper may need a little encouragement to come off of the rotor especially so with lots of mileage. Take note of how the pads are installed and which pad goes on which side so you can put the new ones in correctly. The pads can be a little tricky to get back in, but if you take your time and go carefully you won't have a problem. Take a wrech/socket and unscrew the bolt holding on the breakline fitting. It is a banjo fitting that will have a washer on the top and bottom to seal it. Your new caliper may or may not have a fitting with it, just reuse the fitting and washers if not. Wipe down the rotor with some brake clean and measure it to ensure it's not too thin; there should be a measurement stamped on the rotor that's not to be exceeded. If it's good then just slide the caliper w'pads installed back on the rotor. Take a dab of brake grease and rub on the two caliper pins to help the caliper slide back and forth. The just push back into place with a little help from a mallet. Doulbe check you got everything put back on in the right place and then put the wheel back on and torq accordingly.
