Changing the rotors out on my 83 4x4 bronco

I started taking apart my front hubs to get to the rotors after the caliper and pads were off, and I coudn't for the life of me figure out how to get the rotor off. Aparantly theres a 6 key socket ( specialty hub tool ) but the guy at the shop gave me the wrong one. I put it back together broken and now i've completely lost the brakes on my left front. I need to fix it soon and I have no clue. please help

    I already know that the rotor is fried and there is no pad left on the outer side and the the caliper is broken and needs to be replaced. I have all these parts and I know why it all isn't working. I just don't know how to get the old rotor off.

I would start with the simplest of solutions and try bleeding the breaks and checking the lines for any leaks. Second, if the brakes were properly bled and there is no leak apparent, I would remove the front caliper on the left side, and have a friend pump the brakes, and see if there is pressure on the caliper itself. It is likely that you may have broken or otherwise damaged a brake line, or the caliper simply chose this mos inconvenient of times to die.

    I would try heading down to auto value or any other big name auto parts store/auto supply(that sells tools). I believe you are looking for an 1197 lock-nut wrench. Mastercraft sells them up here in canada, dunno about hwere you are.

I have replaced the rotors and pads. Really didn't start to pulste until I did the brakes.


Take it all apart and start over. You obviously didn't do what was required.
Did you remove all rust from rotor mounting hub face?
Install new rotor or remove all rust from both hub and wheel faces and machine rotor.?
Remove all rust from caliper slides and pad sliding abutments and use correct lubricant, in proper spots.
Install the very best quality, vehicle specific pads (Rebestos,Wagner,etc)
Flush and bleed system coorectly.
Are the calipers old and rusted inside, and piston not retracting?

Hi how do i take of the front rotor for a 94 ford bronco?


have you got the wheel off, this is first step. next take off the pads and caliper. you dont have to disconnect the brake line. next there is a cotterpin and bolt holding the rotor on( in the center under a cap w grease in it), remove these and it should come off. if its rusted on youll have to hammer it a bit.

Changing brakes and rotors


Remove te cross pins that hold the caliper and the brake pads in place, then remove the caliper bracket, there are 2 bolts at the backside, then the rotro just slides off, clean any rust on the rotor mount area while the rotor is off, then using a large clamp depress the piston in the brake caliper and reinstall in reverse order, one word of caution, use quality replacement parts, Wagner is very good, if you don't use good parts you will end up with poor brake performance.
