The bolts should not be covered by anything. You can locate them on the back side of the calipers where the bracket wings down toward the axle.

The passenger front caliper on my 2003 FX4 once in a while will not release all the way. When you beat on it with a hammer it will release. It always seems to do it on Hot days. Is there a solution or...


I suggest replacement....it may stay engaged and cause overheating and seizure of bearings and axle shaft....this is risky if it occurs while driving. Also, these components are a lot more costly than a caliper.. Consider too, that the other caliper is same age and maybe due for failure. !

Rear axle removal on a 2004 f150 fx4


First thing is to make sure you chock the front tires so the truck will not roll. Raise the rear end and set it on jack stands. Put the transmission in Neutral and make sure the parking brake is off. Remove the rear tires and disassemble the brakes on the side with the leaking seal. Place a drain pan under the rear differential and remove the cover. Remove the differential shaft lock bolt. You will need to turn the drive shaft by hand to access the bolt. It will be on the right side off the spider gear housing. Only use a 5/16 or 8mm 6 point box end wrench to remove the bolt. After you remove the bolt reach on the top of the spider gear housing and push the differential lock shaft down to remove it. Make sure the spider gears do not rotate after you remove the shaft. If they do you will need to realign everything to reinstall the lock shaft. Push the axle shaft in enough to remove the "C" clip from the tip of it. The axle will now slide out of the rear end. You can use the tip of the axle shaft to remove the axle seal. If you're changing the bearing as well you will need a slide hammer with axle bearing adapters to remove it. You can use a socket and hammer to install the new bearing and seal. Be careful not to damage the bearing and seal. I recommend packing grease in the back side of the seal. This helps prevent the spring on the seal lip from coming off. Assembly is the reverse. Clean off all the gear oil from the differential cover and the axle. You can use RTV as a gasket if the OEM gasket is damaged. Fill the rear end with new gear oil of the proper type. Refer to your owner's manual.

My rear end chatters around corners and if im pulling a trailer my abs light and the wrench shaped light will come on in my 2004 f150 fx4 supercrew


If you have a locking rear diff,it could be the clutches on the side gears or lack of fluid and special additive. Sounds like the wheel speed is off enough on corner,to set the ABS light,when it chatters. Don't over look parking brake and rear caliper issues.

Rear brakes on 2006 f150 need changing


There should be two bolts that hold the caliper to the axle assembly. Remove these two bolts and slide the caliper off. At this point check the rotors for abnormal wear or grooves. Depending on how many miles you have on them I would replace them regardless. Before you insert the new pads into the caliper I like to use a C clamp and a piece of flatstock to force the pistons back to their original location. If you don't do this you will not be able to fit the caliper over the rotor. Before installing the caliper if you did buy the new rotors use some brake cleaner to remove any of the cosmoline oil that they are shipped with. Remember to chock your front wheels or use jackstands if you have enough. Good luck!

How is the rear speaker cover removed from a supercab fx4 f150 2004


The rear door panels are not like the front doors ( additional panel on the door panel ), the silver/gray rear speaker panel is part of the rear door panel.

Remove the panels next to the window ( should be spring clips ).
This should expose 3 bolts holding the top of the door panel on.

Next remove the rear window console panel ( spring clips on the side towards the cab, tabs on the side towards the door ).
Behind this should be a bolt.
Next remove the rectangle cover in teh door handle area, there is a bolt behind this.
should be 1 other screw at the bottom of the door panel, by the door sill area ( under the map pocket ).
The door is held on like the front doors, with large plastic hooks, so pick up on the door panel once all the screws are out.

Rear axle leaking


Block the front tires. Break the rear lugs loose. Jack up the rear of the truck at the center if possible. remove the wheels & brake drums. Remove the brake shoes,return springs & all the other hardware. Remove the differential cover & drain oil. If you have a posi the next step sucks. You need to remove the threaded pin from the housing & remove the axle retaining clips. All the while,being carefull of the spring in the posi unit. If no posi,then same procedure,minus the "pucker factor". After the axle is out,take a large flat blade screw driver or pry bar & pop the seal out. Keep in mind the axle bearing is probably gone too , so that's another procedure. Keep it apart,you'll be glad you did.

How to change rear brake pads on 97 park avenue


To change Rear Brake Pads on a 1997 Buick Park Avenue. Remove the bottom bolt on the caliper. The top has a non removable pivot pin. Remove the bolt that holds the brake emergency brake to the frame. Remove the 2 bolts in the rear of the axle plate that hold the caliper in place. (they take a #18 metric socket and you may need a breaker bar to loosen them) With the caliper free from the mount, swing the pad holder up on the top pivot pin and remove the old shoes and replace. Turn the caliper piston clockwise and inboard with a caliper disk brake tool (harbour freight about 19 bucks). Flip the shoe holder part of the caliper back in place and put the assembly back over the rotor. Re install the bolts (blue locktite on the caliper mount bolts and tighten slight snug with breaker bar) retighten the bottom caliper bolt (moderately no locktite)
