I'am trying to change my front pads on my 92 taurus. but i could not figure out how to get the caliper off to put the new pads on. could you tell me what to do?

You need a socket with an allen/hex bit. Not sure about the size of the hex bit you will have to figure that out yourself. There are 2 scews holding the on calipers.

Heres what they look like:

They are on the back of the caliper toward the engine, find the proper size hex socket. They sale a set of the sockets at Autozone for around $10, 3/8 inch drive. Thats the best way to go.

I need a tool to take my front passenger caleper off to replace the tire studs it seems to need an allen key

don't know about this exact car, but most brake calipers use either a 3/8th inch allen (hex) head or a T-50 torx head bit. The Hex wrench is what I would get without seeing this. I have also used a ratchet extension on some cars.

Want to know the size of the allen head screw that holds the front caliper together on a 2007 expedition 2wd 5.4 liter limited

These are mostly metric now. Sorry the sizes are not listed in the shop manual. Some are TORX head as well. (star shaped). Take a close look to see what you have. Sears will let you return any unused tools.

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.

How to take the front caliber off the 04 expedition

To remove the front caliper, you must pop pop off the anti rattle spring, pay close attention as to how it attaches so you can reinstall it, then pop off the hex bolt covers on the rear of the caliper, then using a 7mm hex driver, loosen the two hex bolts that fasten the caliper to the caliper bracket, and pry the caliper away from the rotor from the bottom first then slide it off.

What size wrench to use to remove brake calliper


If we're talking front calipers then lot of Fords have allen bolts holding the calipers in place rather than conventional bolts.

There's two on each caliper, and each one is inside a deep rubber sleeve with a plastic pop out cap on them (if the caps are still there of course!), so basically, you need to pop the plastic caps out of the rubber sleeves and then find an allen (hex) key to fit the allen bolts, and then you're good to go, but you'll need a longish handle on the hex key and get some anti-sieze spray on there because the slides may put up a fight.

Very best regards
