SOURCE: cant remove the rotor and retainer clip

You will need a large bearing retaining nut socket (1-in drive) about 2 7/16th in or 61/62mm (I got mine at NAPA with a 1/2 in to 1-in drive converter) BUT BEFORE loosening the nut there is a small keeper under the bottom edge the nut at the top (12-oclock) position of the nut. Use a magnet to retrac this and then loosen the large bearing nut. You sometimes have to slightly move the nut "a hair" left or right to remove this bearing keeper. Once the keeper is out the nut will easily come off. The rest is easy. Good Luck!

SOURCE: clip holding brake hose to chassis

That clip is just rusted. Use a hammer and chisel putting the chisel against the leg of the clip and work it out. Spray it down with penetrate.

Don't remove that until you have removed the metal line going in. try a little heat on the metal line and work it. It is in your best interest to get that to turn out, and often the line rusts to the fitting causing it to twist off and brake. What ever you do, do not use compression fitting if it breaks. they make brake lines that will go to the master with the right fittings depending on how far you have to go.

Hope this helps

How do I change the boost on my 1998ford escortvse stationwogon


If you are talking about the vacuum booster control unit for the power brakes .
Its not that hard .Unbolt the master cylinder from the front of the unit no need to disconnect brake lines move to the front of vehicle .
Go under the dashboard remove the clip on the pin on the brake pedal holding the force rod that goes from the pedal to the unit note the way the bushings and washers and clips come apart you have to put them back together in the same order with the brake switch .
Then remove the 4 bolts on the back of the fire wall holding the booster control unit to the wall .
Install in reverse order .You will also have on the front of the control unit a main vacuum line coming from the intake manifold it just plugs in .

Should be no problem. You can buy the ring (clip) expanding pliers at any auto supply store. I bought the complete set with an assortment of tips and two pliers both expansion and protracting for $15.

1997 Ford contour rear brake shoe replacment help.


Brake shoe removel:

Depress and turn the retainers for the hold-down springs and pins to remove them from each shoe. Slide the brake shoe assembly--including the shoes and springs--down so you can disengage the top ends of the shoes from the cylinder and tilt them to lift them past the retaining plate.

Unhook the lower retracting spring from the front brake shoe to disconnect it. Spread the shoes apart at the bottom to remove the adjusting screw, the screw's retracting spring and the adjuster lever. Remove the front brake shoe.

Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.

Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.
  • Step 4 Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.
  • Step 5 Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.

    01 Bimmer 530i could someone guide me to replace Fr Brake Sensors


    It should be in the front left inboard brake pad. You jack up the car, remove the front left wheel, and pull it out of the top of the brake pad backing plate. there is a metal spring clip around it that holds it in there snugly, but it should pull out. Then unthread the wire back up to the little box where the plug is. Be carefull pulling the plug apart. Don't pull it by the wires or you may pull the plug off the end of the wire on the car side, and you will end up soldering the new sensor (and all subsequent sensors) onto the wire,
    Are you replacing the sensor without replacing the pads? Why?

    I am trying to remove my 95 blazer pass. front door panel and cannot get the plastic around the door handle to come apart and I know that it has to come apart somehow to get the door panel over the door...


    Possibly a clip on the inside i know for most of the plastics on my 95 there are hidden clips the need to be pressed or lifted with a screw driver to get off. They **** because if its to cold they mostly brake so if you do run into them i would advise getting a hair dryer and heating them up first if your doing it outside or if its a nice day you shouldnt have to worry about it.

    Lemme know if this helps : )

    Brake Light Switch clip on 94 GMC Pickup


    My 1996 Brake light clip needed to spread open with a screw driver(some what like a round spring) and with another screw driver push the switch up the pin. The switch will push the clip off the Pin. The pin has a head that needs to clear clip while the spring clip is spread open. It took me a while to figure out.
