If it's a bolt it's a 17MM if it is smaller then you are on the wrong bolt, there are two of them and if there is no bolt then it's a # 8 or #10 tork head wrench.

    It its just the pads, you only need a 13MM to unbolt the caliper sliding bolts.

Will I need a caliper reset tool kit to change the brakes on my 2007 toyota sienna or will a standard c-clamp do the job? And since it is an ABS system, I assume that brakes must be bled, correct?

How do I change front hub and bearing assembly on 2004 Explorer


Front hub bearing, remove tire, remove caliper and caliper holding bracket, you do not have to remove brake caliper from brake hose, just set it aside, if 4X4 remove front axle nut that goes through center of rotor, also remove brake rotor, disconnect elec, A.B.S connector, remove three bolts on back side of hub bearing, remove hub bearing, some times you will need to knock hub bearing out with a hammer.Reverse to install new hub bearing.

Changing front brake pads on a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac


I'm guessing you have disc brakes in the front of the Explorer. If so, you need to unscrew the two bolts that hold the caliper on.(they'll be either hex or allen bolts) If the caliper does not slide off, take a C=clanp and slowly back the piston down on the caliper. This should free up the caliper so that it can be removed. Make sure you grease the slider pins for the caliper when you reassenble.

Raise the vehicle up and remove the rims & tires

Remove the brake pads, and then remove the calipers from the caliper retention brackets, do NOT remove the brake hoses from the calipers.

Remove the caliper retaining brackets from the hub assemblies (2 large bolts on backside of the bracket)

Tap the brake rotors off of the hubs, hit them from the back side of the rotor.

No big mysteries here, this is a very easy job.
