How to remove a brake studd on a 1999 lincoln navigator


If it is a front rotor, it may be cheaper to replace the rotor, because you will need to pay to press the stud out and then pay to press a new one in or draw the new one in with extra nuts.

If it is a rear stud, there may be a tool to press the stud out while on the vehicle. If the vehicle is a 4x4 you would have more work to remove a front hub. Some autoparts stores loan tools.

Drilling out the stud takes a lot of work, grinding off the stud head from the backside may work if the stud is not too tapered. But you could grind the stud head off and still not be able to pull it through the outside because of a taper.

Is there a certain way to change rear brake rotors. They seem to be frozen and will not come off. I did not see a set screw in the rotors like some of the new models have.


ok i have been doing the for 22 yrs..heres the prob...inside the rear brake rotors r ur parking brake shoes..there is either a rust lip the built up on the inside of the rotor causing the parking brake shoes to grab the rust lip when u try to remove the rotor..if this is the case u will also need to repalce the rear parking shoes and the parking brake shoe holddown spring kit since it will probably break when u have to pry the rotor off....or u maybe able to de adjust the rear shoes by the self adjuster...look on the back side of the other side of the brake rotor an u should see a over slot just below the control arm...if it there use a brake spoon or straight slot screw driver to de adjust the rear park shoes.move it up or down ..one way will tighten them the other way will loosen them...if ur rotor doesnt move at all take off the rear caliper an hit the back side of the brake rotor to knock it off

I changed the rear rotors on a 2004 dodge caravan. i had to loosen the self adjuster on the parking brake to remove the rotor. should i re adjust the self adjuster or will it reset itself? i manually reset...


okay. In order to change the rear brake rotors, you DID NOT have to loosen off the adjuster to get it off. sometimes between the rotor, and the hub it sits against, corrosion develops and this will cause the rotor to be "stuck" so to be speak. A good hit in between the wheel studs with a hammer, a good solid hit, sometimes multiple time using a good penetrating fluid like WD40 will loosen the rotors. and in order to set the parking brake cable yes the guy did have to remove the rotor as there is a spring in the way of the adjuster. The spring there holds the adjuster in place from backing or getting any tighter upon moving forward or rear ward. So please next time just use a hammer in between the wheel studs, i'm sure you will see it pop off easily. If not, then hit the face of the rotor from behind which is the caliper side. You are going to replace them anyway so damage won't matter. That usually works too. good luck!

How do you remove the rear rotors on a chevy avalanche 4x4 the rotor is stuck and won't come off.Is there a trick to it? I've tried hammer and prying it.


Well with the rotors on the rear you still have a drum with brake shoes in the middle for your E-Brake.Think you have to back off the parking brake nut at the equalizer(one cable into two) to get slack in the cable to back off the shoes inside.Well hope this helped and good luck.

Do i need to change the brake pads and discs???


No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down. The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor. Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.

Dodge Magnum Brake Rotor


You need to back off the hidden emergency brake shoes that contact the interior part of the rotor. Remove the rubber plug on the inside and rear part of the hub and use a screwdriver to back off the star wheel adjuster. Unless you do this, you'll never get the rotors off.
Hint: the secondary drum type emergency/parking brake shoes may need replacement
