Just the pads, (go out andbuy a tool to compress the caliper, will look like a cut out the shape of a brake pad with a bolt in the middle, about 5-10 bucks, and nice tool to have if your going to do this again) ok take the tires off one side, ,jack it up of course. There will a brake caliper over the rotor, rotor is the round shiney thing like a plate. That caliper will have two bolts, one toward the top, one toward the bottom. Get them out, lift the caliper off. , use a jack stand or position the caliper so it isn't just hanging by the hose, thats a brake line so be careful with it. The brake pads are inside the caliper one on each side, the sit on each side of the rotor and act as a clamp when you push the brakes. Pay careful attention to how the they come out, may have wire clips or something helping hold them in. Once they are out use a brake caliper tool and one of the old pads, put the pad on the round circle tube like thing in the middle of the inside of the caliper, place the cut out part of the tool into where the other pad went, and turn the screw to force that round circle tube thing back, so it is open wider. If you can't turn the tool and move the caliper so it is more open, then the caliper maybe bad. But lets save that question for later. Once you get the caliper wide open, put the new pads in with saftey clips and springs if it has them. Slide it back over the rotor (thats why you have to open it wide, the new pads will be thicker) and then replace the bolts. If your just doing the pads then put then make sure it all is tight and put the tire back on and of course let it off the jack. Repeat on the other side. Hopefully that works for ya if you need more info just ask. Good luck.

Abs light staying on


The ABS light comes on when there is a malfuntion in the ABS system, not when the brakes are low. On a Ford you more than likely have a dirty sensor or pick up ring on the back side of the rotor. And no you do not have to change the rear drum brakes when changing your front pads but they should be inspected.
Usually you will change 2-3 sets of front pads before the rears need to be changed.

Instrument panel brake light stays on what does it mean


The brake warning light is for the hydraulic system.
It could be low on fluid or several other things. There may also be a warning light for a dead brake or tail light.

My 2006 ford 150 super crew front brakes seem to be flaking off? When I look at my front tire wheel covers I find residue on the wheel covers, I do not ride my brakes in traffic, what is the problem, just...


It's not uncommon to find brake dust on the wheel covers. If it is excessive, one possibility is that the pistons are sticking in the caliper bores. Jack up a wheel and give it a spin with your hand. If it spins easily, then all is well. Check your wheel bearing play while you have it jacked up. There shouldn't be any significant looseness. 70,000 km and only halfway through the pads sounds good. Cheers!

I am replacing the front rotors, brake pads and bearings on a f350 super duty crew cab diesl truck with 112000 niles how do i get the brake calipers off?


you will see a saddle with two bolts, one on top and one on the bottom. Remove the two to gtet the calipers off. I do suggest to use a C clamp first with the old pads to compress the caliper piston all the way in before removing the calipers

Do you have step by step instructions to change the front brake pads?


first jack up one side of car with the emergency brake on, and use a jack stand under the frame. then take off tire. unloosen the two bolts that hold the caliper to the rotor assembly. take out old pads. use a c-clamp to push the piston into the caliper(but make sure you take the brake fluid cap off on the reservoir under the hood) then reinstall the new pads and put the caliper back on and your done on that side. repeat for other side.
