There should be two (2) fairly large hex-head bolts on the back side of the hub assembly. Spray the bolts with some WD-40 (taking care not to get any on the other parts of the braking system. Use an extension handle (small piece of pipe) over the handle of your 3/8 inch rachet. This should provide you with enough leverage to break free the retaining bolts. Make doble sure the socket you use fits over the bolt head very snuggly, otherwise you could cause rounding of the bolt head and make the job twice as difficult. Alway try using a SAE socket, and then try a Metric socket to see which one fits better. Many US manufactured cars are using metric bolts in these applications. It's only a 2005, so they should break free with a bit more leverage than the short rachet handle. I personally use the pipe that comes as a handle on my small hydraulic jack, but any pipe will suffice.

Is it hex (like an allen screw) or is it a Torx or Torx plus? Torx are serrated.

remove the caliper by removing 2 bolts on the inner side of the caliper (15/16 size I think) then pull the caliper off the rotor. dont remove the brake hose or let the caliper hang by the hose (set it on a bucket or use a piece of wire to tie it to an A arm) then the rotor will pull off easily.

How do I eplace the front rotors on a 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4wd? Is there a special tool required to remove and replace the rotor and is there an adjustment needed inside the hub?


jack up the car, first break lugs, and remove tire. There are two bolts on the front back side, if it like are endeavor then I compressed the caliper piston and then I had to take apart the caliper as the old pads did not come out, those are the two bolts on each end. then put back on. Once the caliper is off the rotor will come off as it is held on by the caliper. Just be careful with the caliper once it is removed as it is a brake line, you can use a hanger for it does not pull on the line when it is off the rotor. Good Luck Tim

Need to replace rear brake rotors on 2003 Exp Sport Trac. can't get rotor off. see 4 nut behind assembly, believe they need to come off. once brakes off, how will that effect the e-brake/drum brake system,...


The rotor is not bolted on , the lugnuts from the wheel / tire holds the rotor in place. Once the caliper is removed , you will need to free the rotor from the wheel bearing/hub assembly . A large hammer will be required if rusted to the hub, then you may need to back off the e-brake shoes through the slot in the back of the backing plate, you must use a brake spoon and a pick to back off the adjuster to allow the rotor/drum to clear the ebrake shoes. please rate my answer, this helps me out , Thankyou have a great weekend.

How do remove rear rotors on 2004 ford sprt trac?


After removing the calipers they should come right off. There may be a couple of retainers from the factory but just take a pair of dikes and cut the retainers. you do not need to replace them. Us a heavy hammer and give it a good hit to break the rust bond. Depending on rust you may have to hit it more. It should slide off.

Hope this helps

Removal of rotor of 05 honda accord


first you need to remove the wheel. if its the rear rotor, then its easy to do. all you need to do is remove the 2 bolts holding the brake caliper on, then remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket. after those are removed, the rotor should just slide right off. if your removing the front, then follow the previous steps, but also use a large socket to remove the big nut right in the center of the rotor.after that is done, it should slide off easily.

How hard is it to replace front rotors


for the most part you put the car on jackstands on both side and there is two screws on the back of the brake caliper remove them and then you take a little brake fluid out first then you take a-c-clamp and use one of the old pads and the take the c- clamp and close the cylinder on the caliper so you can get your new pads on because they will be thicker and once you have it all back together be sure you add brake fluid back in and put the cap on and pump the brakes to get the pedal back up before you drive the truck and here is a website that may have you truck listed its www.autozone.com and i hope i have been some help to you

Cant remove rear rotors


The likelihood is they are seized onto your rear hubs. After removing the caliper spray the centre part with easing oil and start to knock the outer edges using a hammer.Do this a few times around the edges and they should start to come free.

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.
