02 Ford Expedition rear tire removal

I'm trying to replace the brake pads on my 02 Ford Expedition and I'm unable to get the rear tires off. All the lugs are off but there's something in the center of the tire I think is preventing the tire from coming off. Can anyone Help??

It's rust on the center of the hub. Spray with wd-40 or some type of penetrating oil, let it sit overnight if you have the time, then to relieve some of the anger over this hold up of starting the brake job, kick the heck out of the edge of the tire to break it free. Make sure it's well supported so it won't fall, and if you can turn the wheel and kick all edges it will work better. Good luck.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section
  2. Loosen the lug nuts on the rear wheel and tire assemblies but do not remove the lug nuts

    • Brake pad retaining pins for deterioration or damage; replace as needed
    • Brake pad retaining spring for deterioration or damage; replace as needed
    • Brake caliper piston seal for leakage or damage; overhaul the caliper as needed
To Install:
NOTE: Never replace brake pads on one side of axle only. Left and right side brake pads must be replaced only as axle sets.
  1. Install the new brake pads onto the caliper
  2. Apply a small amount of silicone grease to the retaining pins NOTE: Check to ensure that the brake pads move freely in the guide.

  5. Lower the vehicle to the ground
  6. Torque the lug nuts as follows:
    • First Pass: Torque to 46 lb-ft. (63 Nm)

How to replace front brake pads for a 2000 expedition


raise and support the front ,remove both tires , there is two bolts on the backside of the caliper,I find it easier to pry on the back pad to drive the piston so you can wiggle the caliper off,do not let the caliper hang by the hose look at both sides of the rotor if they have groves they need to be turned if they are ok then you need to push the piston back into the caliper use a c clamp(loosen the bleeder valve on the caliper it makes it easier) put the pads on the rotor then put caliper back on and thighten bolts. repeat on other side. ( might pay to get a repair manuel if you have any doubts)

How do you change the brake pads on 2005 expedition


A 13 mm & a 15mm boxed end wrench is needed and a C Clamp. Jack up the front wheel and remove the tire and wheel. One of the wrenches will fit the two bolts that hold the caliper on the saddle. Before removing the caliper take a long and heavy screw driver and insert between the pad and caliper. try to pry the pad into the piston which you can not see but towards the engine side you will need to push the piston in. That way you can remove the caliper easily. Carefully set the caliper on a solid working area and do not stretch or bend the rubber hose too much. Had e the brake master cylinder cover off or loosened up well. Next take the C Clamp and use that to press the piston all the way flush with the caliper. You need to do this for with new pads the room is a nessisity. Have the rotors turned at any auto parts store locally. The re install new pads and reverse the proceedure to put back together. Your brake fluid should be near the full mark after your done. Take note when brake fluid is an inch low pads are very worn and need replacing. Check the rears every 35000 if towing excessively and 60000 if you do not tow a lot

I have a 1998 ford expedition with 4wd and it pulls to the right. I had the tires rotated and the wheels aligned twice. The problem remains.


You could be having uneven tires; front-brake dragging; broken or sagging springs. Have your front brakes checked.

Instructions Instructions for Replacing Rear Break Pads. Hyundai


Things You'll Need:
  • New brake pads
  • C-clamp
  • Allen head, star head, or 6-point socket wrench
  • Lug nut wrench
  • Brake fluid
    Remove the old Brake Pads
  1. Step 1 Park your car on a level surface. If you have a stick shift car, make sure the car is in gear. Place blocks in front of the front tires so the car does not move while you are working on it.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood of your car. Locate the master cylinder and brake fluid container. If necessary, remove brake fluid until the level in the container is less than half full. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Put the brake fluid in the plastic container and dispose of it the way you dispose of motor oil.
  3. Step 3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.
  4. Step 4 Use the socket wrench to remove the lower caliper bolt from the back of the caliper. Rotate the caliper up.
  5. Step 5 Remove the brake pads from the caliper.
  6. Install the new Brake Pads
  7. Step 1 Insert the pads into the caliper.
  8. Step 2 Place a large C-clamp on the body of the caliper and slowly tighten the clamp evenly. Compress the piston until it is flush with the caliper.
  9. Step 3 Lower the caliper and use the socket wrench to attach the lower caliper bolt. Tighten the bolt to 16 to 24 ft. lbs. (22 to 32 Nm).
  10. Step 4 Replace the tire wheel assembly tire. Lower the car to the ground. Pump the brake pedal a few times to seat the brake pads.
  11. Step 5 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.
  12. Step 6 Season the brake pads by making only gentle stops when you are driving for the first week after you install the new brake pads. Try not to do any hard stopping when you are seasoning the brakes.

Clicking sound coming from the driver's side rear by the tire


Remove the rear rotors to check the emergency brake pads. The rivets can rust and the pads will slide around. They will click at slow speeds. Drove me crazy for weeks.
