SOURCE: cannot get front hub assembly to come off. caliper and rotor are removed, spindle nut and cotter pin removed, still will not budge, even with a puller.

These things always stick. Here's my trick to get them off. Get 4 more bolts with the same thread, but much longer. Screw them into the holes, start the engine (DON'T TOUCH THE BRAKE PEDAL), and turn the wheel back and forth. As you get all the way to one side the longer bolts will hit the axle housing and push the hub/bearing assembly out of the knuckle. Snap on also mahes a special tool for this that does the same thing, but uses the factory bolts. There's probably 20 different ways you can rig something up that will work off the same principle. You're gonna have to get creative if you wanna drive it this week.

SOURCE: front axel/hub

the hub is seized into stering knuckle..you can try putting a socket or a small 1/2" drive extension between 1 ear of front axle shaft and axle housing and turning wheels all the way to whatever side you have socket in..this will push hub out of knuckle..try doing this both ways with engine running..keep axle nut on shaft

6290230.gif Here's an exploded view, you'll need to pop off the grease cap #6 then remove the snap ring #8 to get the hub off to get the rotor off. Hope it is of some help...pictures always are.

Rotors are relatively easy to remove, there should be two bolts that attach them to the backing plate. Disconnect the brake fluid lines first and under the hold down bolts.

Make sure backing plates behind front & rear rotors aren't rubbing on rotors. Jack up each wheel individualy & spin. May also be emergency brake shoes rubbing inside drum inside rear rotors.

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

Parking brakes replacement.Do you have to pull driveshaft to replace shoes?


No you don't not on the front or rear, if ti is a 4x4 or all wheels drive you might have to if you have to replace a rotor but no. You have some screws that can hold the rotor in place but to pull the pads you remove two bolts holding the caliper on, the rear if it has shoes has to have the screws removed to remove the drum to get to the shoes. if it's Drum brakes the shoes may come apart and make it hard to get to but still pull off.
