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

Replacing break pads on 2000 tarus


Remove & Replace the Brake Pads
  • Loosen lug nuts from the front wheels with the ratchet and socket, but do not remove them.
  • Raise the front of the vehicle using the floor jack and secure it with jack stands.
  • Remove the lug nuts from the wheels and pull the wheels from the vehicle.
  • Look on the rear of the brake caliper and locate the caliper bolts, one upper and one lower.
  • Loosen and remove the upper and lower caliper bolts using the ratchet and socket.
  • Pull the caliper from the brake assembly, exposing the brake pads, and hang the caliper from a suspension component, using the bungee strap. Do not allow the caliper to hang by its hose, as this may cause damage.
  • Grasp the inner and outer brake pads and pull them from the brake assembly. Take note of how they were positioned, as the new brake pads must be placed in the same fashion.
  • Place the new brake pads on the brake assembly in the same position the old ones were.
  • Position the c-clamp over the caliper so the screw portion is contacting the the caliper's piston--the metal cylindrical object inside the caliper--and the fixed portion of the clamp is contacting the rear of the caliper.
  • Tighten the c-clamp until the caliper's piston is fully pressed into the calipers body. The top of the piston is even with the caliper body when fully pressed in.
  • Loosen the c-clamp and remove it from the caliper.
  • Place the caliper over the new brake pads and hand-tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts.
  • Tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts to 26-foot pounds, using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Repeat Steps 4 through 13 for the brake pads on the other side of the vehicle.
  • Place the wheels back on the vehicle and hand-tighten the lug nuts.
  • Remove the jack stands from under the vehicle and gently lower it to the ground.
  • Tighten the lug nuts to 100-foot pounds using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Press and release the brake pedal repeatedly until it feels firm.

Trying to change disc brakes need help on how to do that


You need to take off the tire. Then, you need to take the two bolts off that hold the caliper up. The caliper will come off and the brake pads are inside. Pay close attention to how the old ones are in. Put the new ones in and put the caliper back on. Also, when you take the two bolts off the caliper to get to the pads, don't get the top bolt and bottom bolt confused. They won't fit right. Top is top and bottom is bottom.

under the dash on the pass side there is a large black plastic box. take out the 6 screws and pull off the cover. there is a wire attached to the top that controls a flap, that just lifts off. under the hood loosen and remove the 2 host clamps right at the firewall area. Push the metal tubes in to the firewall. Then reach back in from under the dash and pull out the old core. put the new one in reverse order.

Do you have a basic check list for replacing the front pads? It's been a while since I've wrenched.


block and jack up the wheel take it off there are several different types of retainers some have a split pin which you withdraw to free the disc pads outher ones have a spring clip you may find that y will have to press the hyd cylinder back to fit the new ones as the cylinder has moved out to alow for wear on the old ones while u have it striped down check for any leaks on the wheel cylinder also coat the hyd cylinder with gold grease this will protect it alow about 20min a wheel 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.

Change the brakes on 2007 sport trac


it has front and rear disc brakes, disc brakes are very simple to change out. Most disc brakes have two bolts that hold them on, one on the bottom one on the top on the inside of the brake caliper, they may be an allen head, or just a bolt. Remove them counter-clockwise. After you remove the two bolts, lift up and away on the caliper and the whole assembly will come off. Once you pull the assembly off you will see the two pads, one of them is driven by a piston, the other one is fixed. Remove the fixed one, they just pop off (have little metal clips you may have to slide the pad off). Take a C-clamp or something comparable to squeeze with, place it on the back of the caliper and on the old pad thereby squeezing the cylinder back into the piston, once you squeeze the cylinder back into the piston, it will give you room needed for thicker new brake pads. Piston should retract with the c-clamp fairly easy, shouldn't be a whole lot of resistance. Remove c-clamp after you get it to retract and remove old pad. Put new pad on, just like you took the old ones off. All four are basically the same to change out, they all have two bolts holding them on. You pull those, get the pistons to retract and replace the worn pads, put them back on, line up holes, put bolts back in... and your good to go. When you get back in the car and turn the key on, you may have to pump the brakes a few times.

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.
