Just use my Knickname@ and let me know where to send.


  1. Raise and support rear of vehicle, then remove wheel and tire assembly.
  2. Remove brake drum. If brake drum cannot be removed easily, insert a suitable screwdriver through hole in backing plate, then push adjuster lever away from adjuster and back of adjustment tension.
  3. Remove tension spring, using a suitable tool, then remove rear shoe hold-down spring and pin. Remove rear brake shoe and anchor spring, Fig. 7.
    1. On Land Cruiser models, remove front hold-down spring using a suitable tool, then disconnect the parking brake cable from the parking brake bellcrank, Fig. 7.
    2. On Pickup, 4Runner, 4WD T100 and 4WD Tacoma models, remove front shoe hold-down spring and pin, using a suitable tool, then disconnect No. 1 parking brake cable from No. 3 parking brake bellcrank.
    3. On 2WD T100 models, proceed as follows:
      1. Remove E-ring, then automatic adjusting lever and C-washer, then parking brake lever. Disconnect brake line from wheel cylinder using a suitable container to catch fluid.
      2. Remove wheel cylinder. Remove following parts from wheel cylinder: two boots, two pistons, two pistons cups and spring.
    1. On models except 2WD T100, remove front brake with strut, then disconnect parking brake cable from front shoe. Remove parking brake cable No. 2.

Front brakes rotor


Why do you want to change the rotor? Have you had poor maintenance and allowed the brake pads to wear out completely and now metal is rubbing on metal and destroyed the rotor? If so I recommend you go to the library and look for your f-150 repair manual. You should be able to find the answer. Or Better yet buy a lightly used repair manual so you can learn and understand your vehicle. Usually the rotor is a flat disk but the repair manual will be much better source.

Some whirling noises


suspect it is warped disc rotors. If the pedal pulsates under your foot on light braking I would take it to a brake shop for investigation of the fault. Any noise or unusual incidents with brakes can become critical if ignored.

When i press my brakes my wheel shakes, what is this problem?


The brake rotors are warped. This is a common occurrence. It can be caused by numerous things; excessive rotor wear (too thin), uneven brake pad wear, sticky brake calipers, riding the brake pedal causing excessive heat buildup in the rotors, and over-torque of lug nuts are just a few causes. Having the rotors checked and re-machined may help, but normally they require replacement. If you replace rotors, it is advisable to replace the brake pads at the same time to avoid a poor wear pattern.

Just changed the front pads on my 2004 Expedition due to a squeaking during brake application. I noticed the pads I pulled off still had a lot of pad on them. So I took the rotors to be mic'd and I...


  • A few things here.
  • Pads can look good and still squeak, especially the dirt cheap ones. Quality pads are always advised. Ceramic if possible.
  • You took the rotors in so I assumed that they took the required 3 spot caliper minimum test and looked for color change and worn spots/grooves.
  • Brake dust is a huge cause of squeaking of brakes. Brake clean does a great job of clearing that off of the rotor etc.
  • Sometimes that shudder grease (should be used every time a new pad is installed) can ware off. Did you reapply that yet? $2usd for a little packet of it. Apply it to the back of the pad.
  • Did you check to see if the metal pad tracks had grease on them still? When the caliper pushes out on the pad it moves on a metal track to reach the rotor. Check and reapply if necessary.
  • Sometimes pads can get a rough spot from normal ware that starts digging into the rotor. A little fine grit sand paper and a quick gentle resurfacing will fix that quick.
  • One of those will be your problem. Check all I have listed. And make sure you are positive you are checking the right brakes. Brake sounds can be deceiving.
  • hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Is it required to machine hubs when replacing brake pads


YES. you should have the rotors checked for wear and thickness before fitting new pads. If the rotor surface is work, cracked or badly deformed, replace the rotors. It would be best to have the rotors inspected by a professional workshop and machined if needed. Doing this will save you money and hassles in the future..

Changing brakes...removal of rotor?


if you changing the brakes you don't need to get the rotors out.you need to get the brake part
out first it has only two screws in back of the brake part....take it out, and you will be available to remove the brake. and if you want you can remove the rotors too. but you dont need to remove it. just take the brakes out and put the new ones.

325 ci brake rotors have been replaced 4 times in 6 years


BMW rotors are not known for lasting very much more than 30-45k miles. When the brakes are inspected, they measure the pads using a special tool threw the outer brake pad. Min spec is 3mm. When the pads are replaced, they measure the thickness of the rotors. The rotor spec is stamped on the rotor. if they are under that spec, they recommend replacing them as well. Next time you bring it in for service, just ask them to measure the rotor thinkness, (its not a huge task, all they have to do is take the wheels off). But more often than not, the rotors wear just as fast as the pads.
