Question about 1983 Ford 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 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.
