Remove the caliper, there should be 2 bolts on back of caliper. Take a wire and hang the caliper up on the coils so the line wont break. Pull rotor off.

1988 Lincoln town car front brake calipers lock up have replaced both calipers. It drives perfect for awhile then they will lock up again.


When you replaced the calipers, did you also replace the caliper frame and slides? Start there. It is common in ford disk brakes to get "stuck" slide pins as they can rust inside the caliper causing the brakes to fail to release the rotor when you let off the pedal. Another cause is the flex line that connects the caliper to the metal lines at the body. As it ages, the inside of the rubber breaks down and collapses effectively becoming a check valve. Pedal force pushes fluid to the brake but separator spring pressure is not enough to make the fluid go back into the master cylinder effectively making the brakes lock up and bind. Try replacing slide pins if haven't already and replace the flex line.

Having trouble getting caliper off front brakes and 1998 chrysler town and country after taking bolts out


Use a tool wedged between the pad and the rotor to force the piston back.

Don't get carried away, or you'll damage the rotor. Apply gentle pressure, and the piston will slowly go back into the caliper.

The pads don't quite reach the edge of the rotor (by design), and so there is a slight lip on the outside perimeter where the rotor is ever-so-much thicker.

2006 town and country rear brake rotor removal. After several beatings, i cant get the rear rotors off my town and country. They are alittle loose, but am wondering if i have to do something with the...


yes the e brake shoes inside the rotor tend to create a lip that will hang them up just bake them off a bit and you should be able to pull them off fairly easily also check to be sure that the stock assembly line retainer clips have been removed from the front of the rotor they are just thin looking washers that are pushed on to the lug nut studs to hold the rotor in place on the assembly line a pair of side head cutters work well to remove them and discard after removed.
Hope this helps.

I have a 1998 town and country with traction control and the brakes drag after a few miles most notably the left front(smoke and melt caliper). I have replaced the calipers and rotors twice but this still...


I had a similar problem with my anti-lock brake.
One of the will wear down. I took it to the dealer, could not tell why.
Until one day the a brake light came on. It was a bad sensor. Replace the bad sensor and the problem went away.
The mechanic plug a portable instrument and drive the car around until he find out. (The brake light came on, then off.)
This anti-lock brake system is control by sensors and it one is not functioning properly then you have a problem.
I do hope this help you.

Brake lights


Check the wires and connector at the brake pedal switch. These wies have a tendency to break, This will cause no brake lights amd not allow the shift interlock to function

Ok, i'm assuming your replacing them, there is an oval rubber stopper on the backside of the rotor, in the backing plate, located near the bottom. it will tighten or loosen the e-brake shoes inside the rotor, loosen them all the way off, then get a big hammer and give them a really good smack, be carefull not to damage the wheel studs, if your reusing them hit on the hat of the rotor, if replacing you can hit right on the rotor face.
Use some antiseize on the hub before installin your new rotors, and don't forget to readjust your
e-brake and reinstall the rubber plug

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
