Remove the brake caliper bolts{2} and caliper.
soak the rotor around the hub with penetrant oil and knock off with large hammer, careful not to hit the wheel studs. These rotors corrode and rust on really bad. If you can loosen the self adjuster behind the backing plate for the parking brake shoes, this will help as they hang up on them too.

SOURCE: Ford Expedition rear brake brake replacement

The rear pads are usualy harder than the front and the harder the pads the more wear there is on the rotors Unless the rotors were worn to the point of replacement they could have had them skimmed.Being soft doesnt make much sense.Have an 03 ba falcon and only replaced our rotors after doing 125000ks The expidition is a similar beast that used the same brake system.Get the rotors skimmed and go to a slightly softer pad to extend rotor life

I have a 2004 Ford expedition I need to know how


The problem with these units is the Emergency brakes are inside of the rear rotors. This causes problems in several ways. The E. brake material can jam inside the rotor/drum and the E. brake needs to be fully retracted to give clearance to remove the rotor. Sometimes the rotor rusts to the axle hub.

Check the link behind the rotor. There are different styles and this pivot may need to be hit with something to drive it closed. Just because the brake cable is retracted does not mean the pivot is fully retracted.

For rust, sometimes it is necessary to put the trans in neutral and turn the axles at the same time you squirt oil in behind the wheel studs. By rotating the axle shaft and tapping the rotor, you force oil into the back surface of the rotor. A rotor puller may be necessary.

2004 Ford Expedition, When braking not so much a vibration in the front but acts like a high spot on the rotor or that its warped. Its getting worse we're almost headbanging. Replaced pads and rotors was...


Rebleeding can help. Always start on the longest line first. Passenger rear, Drivers rear, passenger front, then drivers front. You can also have a diagnostic machine hooked up to the ABS which will tell if there is a problem in sequential braking.

The ABS has its own valving and seals and sits in the middle of the flow to the brakes. The internal valving works on electric and that can be checked with a diagnostic plug. The Dealer will have one. It takes a better, more expensive scanner to do it aftermarket. Some Autozones, Oreillys, or Advance autoparts may have the more expensive scanner.

Sometimes it takes a power bleeder to overcome the ABS valving. I have had problems with Brake rotors on a 1999, 2002, and 2004 Ford products and usually in the front. I can give you several suggestions. Replace the front rubber lines. Under pressure fluid will flow to the caliper, but if the hose is getting smaller inside due to deterioration, it depends on gravity to return to the master cylinder. Your caliper will not fully retract and your brakes will overheat and warp.

Check out NAPA rotors compared to what you put on. I hope my solution is helpful to you.

On a 2004 ford expedtion how do i disconnect the parking brake so i can change the rear rotors?


in the rear on the inside of the assembly you have a small slot that an adjusting tool goes in. If the EBrake seems loose now the rotor may just slide off. If the slot is not thier you should have a adjuster on the cable under the car.

Emergency brake adjustment


I have a 2000 4x4 expedition and the parking brake has its own set of shoes. They are located behind the rear disc rotor. You have to remove them to get to the shoes. You will have to release the parking brake to get the rear rotors off.
