Procedure for replacing rear rotors with disc brakes and abs on ford ranger 2010


I will try to give you a heads up on this job. The hard part is the emergency brakes hidden inside the rear rotors. You need to get slack from the self adjusters on the brake cable where the cable spools up under the dash on the emergency brake activator. Once you get a little slack, then you can shove the emergency brake levers to their neutral position. This will create slack inside the emergency brake drum and allow you to remove the rear rotor like you normally would for a front rotor. Otherwise the emergency brakes will create problems for removing the rotors.

If you have only worked on front rotors, the rear set is more difficult due to the emergency brakes. Get high quality replacement linings for the emergency shoes. Get new pins and mounting springs to secure the linings to the housing.

You may find some good Youtube videos for this repair. Or you may be better off to do the fronts yourself and take it in for the rear set. Realize there are more parts to buy for the rear since there are 2 sets of brakes back there. I do not like this system because it is not durable and the drum portion rusts to the point of uselessness. If you find a company to give a lifetime warranty for this repair you would be ahead.

Losing brake fluid but have no leaks.
This is a common problem and is here to help car owners to understand where the fluid goes. When the brake linings wear out the master cylinder needs more fluid to push the brakes closer to the drum or rotor so when you add brake fluid remember how much and to which one once the brakes have worn two much you will damage the brake drums or linings on the car or truck so after filling up the fluid for the second time it would be wise to have the brakes checked as they are due to be replaced, the fluid displaces the distance of the pads to the drum or rotor.

Changing the brake pads


  • Brake linings that are worn to within 1/32 inch (0.79 mm) of a rivet head or that have been contaminated with brake fluid, grease, or oil must be replaced.
f45-27.gif Potential brake shoe problems. Courtesy of Wagner Brake Products.
  • Failure to replace worn linings results in a scored drum. When it is necessary to replace brake shoes, they must also be replaced on the wheel on the opposite side of the vehicle. Inspect brake shoes for distortion, cracks, or looseness. If these conditions exist, the shoe must be discarded.
  • Do not let brake fluid, oil, or grease touch the brake lining.
  • If a brake lining kit is used to replace the linings, follow the instructions in the kit and install all the parts provided.
  • The two general methods of attaching the linings to the brake shoes are bonding and riveting.
  • The bonded linings are fastened with a special adhesive to the shoe, clamped in place, then cured in an oven. Instead of using an adhesive, some linings are riveted to the shoe.
  • Riveted linings allow for better heat transfer than bonded linings.
Drum Shoe and Brake Installation
  • Before installing the shoes, be sure to sand or stone the inner edge of the shoe to dress down any slight lining or metal nicks and burrs that could interfere with the sliding upon the support pads.
  • A support (backing) plate must be tight on its mount and not bent. Stone the shoe support pads brightly and dress down any burrs or grooves that could cause the shoes to bind or hang up.
  • Using an approved lubricant, lightly coat the support pads and the threads of servo star wheel adjusters. On rear axle parking brakes, lubricate any point of potential binding in the linkage and the cable. Do not lubricate nonservo brake adjusters other than to free a frozen adjuster with penetrating oil.
fr_45.30.3184.gif The areas or pads where the brake show will rub or contact the backing plate.
  • Reassemble the brakes in the reverse order of disassembly. Make sure all parts are in their proper locations and that both brake shoes are properly positioned in either end of the adjuster.
  • Also, both brake shoes should correctly engage the wheel cylinder pushrods and parking brake links.
  • They should be centered on the backing plate. Parking brake links and levers should be in place on the rear brakes.
  • With all of the parts in place, replace the brake drum.

Steering wheel vibrates when applying brakes. Have checked brake linings, pads and anti-lock. Have two Equinox 2005 and 2007. Put new tires on 2007. Still have the problem. Same problem with both...


Could be a warped brake rotor. Have the rotors checked for wear and if they are within tolerance, have them resurfaced.
If they are beyond wear tolerance, replace the brake rotors.
You said you replaced the tires. Did you have all the wheels balanced?? Might want to check this also.

Cranking noise when i turn my car


sounds like u need to see the dealer on the start problem, to many possibilities, if I had to guess I would say engine problems, the brake issue is warped brake rotors, they need to be taken off and replaced or turned true on a brake rotor lathe.
