Question about 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
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.

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.
