SOURCE: Changing front brake pads on a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

I'm guessing you have disc brakes in the front of the Explorer. If so, you need to unscrew the two bolts that hold the caliper on.(they'll be either hex or allen bolts) If the caliper does not slide off, take a C=clanp and slowly back the piston down on the caliper. This should free up the caliper so that it can be removed. Make sure you grease the slider pins for the caliper when you reassenble.

SOURCE: instructions to change the brakes

look for 2 bolts or pins that go right thru the calipers, they actually retain the pads, normally the heads will be on the back side of the caliper. take them out, there may be thin metal clips (springy) on top of the pads. remove them too. slide out pads working the caliper back and forth to loosen them up. open up fluid resevoir then with a large screwdriver push the brake piston back so as to be able to get new pads it, bolt it all back and your are done.

not exactly sure of what your asking but they do have screw type calipers that use a special tool to screw them back into place. I have used needle nose vise grips.

SOURCE: torque specs for front spindle (nut hold brake drum in place)

Tighten till the wheel bearing is tight. No one really uses a specification for that, do it by feel. when the nut is tight, and there is no play in the bearing. Should be about 15-20 ft/lbs, with about .001-.003 end play if you need exact numbers though.

What tools do I need to change brake pads on ford focus 2008


A few of these poster are making assumption's on what model 2008 Focus the question is directed. Actually on a Ford Focus S with a 2.0 liter the caliper is held on by 2 metric bolts.
I believe the caliper housing is held on by a 15 mm bolt, and you might need a 17mm to hold the caliper pins from spinning.
A 2008 Focus has no removable spring, just a spring plate that the brake pad rides in.
Remember to loosen the bleeder line with a 10mm when you compress the caliper to get rid of the excess fluid or take off the cap to the master cylinder, so the pressure will not damage the master cylinder. Make sure and clean the caliper slides with brake cleaner and lubricate them with a good non-petroleum base grease.

Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a threaded rod located within the caliber piston prevents compression of piston back into the caliber.


You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

Jack up car and used jack stands, remove both caliper bolt's, you will need a c-clamp to compress caliper piston in, used one of the old brake pads in front of the piston then press piston in with c-clamp, install new pads and do the same at other side, before moving car pump brake peddle till it get's hard and your done,good luck.

I took the rear wheels off to replace the brake pads on my 1995 Ford Mustang GT convertible and I cannot figure out how to get the pads on and it put back together. Help!


The brake caliper pistons have to be turned back in the caliper in order to install the new pads. I would recommend going to the parts store and maybe renting the tool to do it.

What tools will i need to change the front and back brakes on a 95 mustang V6 would like to get the tools up before i jack up the car and take wheels off then have to put them back on to run to parts...


My 1995 mustang uses a 13 mm socket for the front calipers. I used a screwdriver to pry the pads back before removing the calipers, easier than using the C-clamp method.
As for the back brakes if you have the shoe type brakes you will need a brake shoe adjusting tool to loosen the adjusters.
Probably a good sized 2-4 pound hammer.
Slip joint plyers.
A 5/16 -3/8 wrench for the bleeder screws depending on the one you have. I didn't need to bleed mine as I was able to remove the shoes without disturbing the wheel cylinders.
If you need to bleed the brakes a good bleeding kit or 2 people that can work together pumping and bleeding the brakes .
hope this helps.
As always I would refer the a good shop manuals such as Motor, Haynes or Chiltons.

Front brakes 2008 toyota sienna


No special tools needed, just a 17mm, 21mm. I do not recommend people without training do their own brakes, it is too dangerous to risk peoples lives just to save a few bucks. Also, any pads other than Toyota's will make noise and squeal, so if noise will bother you, use Toyota pads and resurface the rotors.
