SOURCE: need to replace the rear rotors on the ford f150 2005 4x4

yes they should come off unless they are stuck. this is where the problem arises. if the rotors are stuck. what you can do is slam the whole piece where the rotor is on a block of wood so that it won't be damaged. but the rotor would not be touching the wood. let the weight of the rotor force itself off it's holder.

as it comes off, you could notice the rust that have caused it to stuck.
clean it thoroughly before assembling back.

i hope i was able to help,

SOURCE: How to remove disc brake rotor on a 1992 Ford Explorer 4-wheel drive

It should just pull off once you have taken the caliper off. It may be seized in place, if thats the case try spraying the back of it with some sort of penetrating oil, let it sit for a bit. THen put some heat on it if you have torches, or beat it with a hammer. Sounds kind of crude...but it works

SOURCE: I took the caliper off

I had the same problem with the fronts on my 2003 expedition. Assuming you took all the bolts/clips off that could be holding it then I think you have a rusted on problem that even wd40 wont help. Here is a link on how I removed my fronts 5 years ago when the truck was only a year old and the rotors were deeply scarred with the pads that ford first used back then that made the wheels get dirty from brake dust, look for orlandoguy in the postings. basically you use a circular saw with a metal cutting blade to put a weak spot the on the rotor by cutting a slot in the rotor and use a cold chisel and small 5 lb hammer to split it after, Once you crack the rotor you break the rust bond on the hub and it slides off. I wirebrushed the hubs after and used wheel bearing grease to put a thin film on that mating surface to make the next rotor replacement easier.

Front brake rotor removal 94 Eddie Bauer explorer4/4


remove the wheel-remove the brake calliper-- the rotor will be held on by the wheel or will have counter sunk screws that you will have to remove. Check with the new rotor first as it may be a complete hub assembly in which case the whole hub has to come off or be replaced.

Did you get brake pads and caliper off but can't get 2 bracket bolts out? These need to be heated with a propane torch to melt the locktite on the end of the threads.

How to remove brake rotors on a 1996 ford explorer


How to replace the rear brake pads on a 1995 through 2001 Ford Explorer The system utilizes a drum-in-hat type rear brake rotor. The integral drum allows the use of a drum-and-shoe type parking brake system. All other components are similar to their front disc brake components Remove the two bolts on either side of the brake hose with the rubber boots. Do not remove the four bolts where the axle ties in. The two bolts to be removed require a 10mm socket/wrench. Loosen the pads from the caliper Rotor Removal In order to take the rotors off (replace with new or have them machined), it is best to loosen the emergency brake shoes. To do this, behind the rotors, in the back there is a rubber plug, remove that and you can use a screw driver to engage the teeth of the adjusting screw, turn it clockwise to loosen, usually 10-20 teeth. Usually this means turn it downward. After this, it may still be difficult to get the rotors off without tapping them. Use a rubber mallet and hit them from behind. Before really whacking the rotor, make sure you have loosened the adjusting screw enough. It may take heavy swings of the rubber hammer to do this. It will eventually break loose. Parking Brake You might want to check the parking brake while you are here. To remove:
  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Remove the outboard return spring.
  • Remove the adjusting screw spring.
  • Remove the rear brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove the brake shoe adjusting screw and nut.
  • Remove the front brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove both parking brake shoes and the inboard return spring.
  • Check the parking brake lever for excessive wear and replace as necessary.
To install:
  • Position the front parking brake shoe to the backing plate and install the hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the rear parking brake shoe with the inboard return spring.
  • Position the brake shoe adjuster screw and nut on the shoes and install the rear shoe hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the brake shoe adjuster spring.
  • Install the outboard return spring.
  • Adjust the parking brake shoes and install the rotor, caliper and wheel.
  • Lower the vehicle and tighten the wheel lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).
ADJUSTMENT
  • Measure the inside of the drum portion of the rear brake rotor
  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Using Brake Adjustment Gauge D81L-1103-A or equivalent, measure the inside diameter of the drum portion of the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Subtract 0.020 in. (0.508mm) from the first measurement, adjust the brake shoes to that size
  • Adjust the parking brake adjuster screw until the outside diameter of the parking brake shoes measures 0.020 in. (0.508mm) less than the drum measurement.
  • Install the rear disc brake rotor.
Reassembly Reassembly is easy. Put new or machined rotors back on by sliding them over the lugs (they should slide on easily.) Loosen bleeder valve (having a catch bottle handy is good). Push calipers in slowly (using a c-clamp or large channel lock pliers), close bleeder valve. Put on pads. Lubricate metal clips with small amount of anti-seize. Re-adjust the emergency brake by turning the opposite direction from loosening. Refill the brake master cylinder

Need instructions to remove rear rotors.seem to be stuck or theres something im missing.2003 ford sportrac


Remove the wheels. Remove the two retaining bolts that hold the pads in place. Slide the pads off the rotors by lifting up and outward on the bracket from the bottom. Sometimes they can be a little stubborn. The reason for this is usually there is a slight ridge on the outer edge of the rotor that they need to slide over because the rotor needs to be turned now.
