There are two main components the rotor and the calipers. After your car is on jack stands remove your wheel (* important note: make sure your brakes arent depressed before you start working on them. this will draw the brake pads up against the rotors and you wont be able to easily remove them). You should see the silver circular disc (rotor) and a contraption that is grabbing onto the rotor (caliper). now you must remove the caliper. there are two allen head bolts that hold each side of the caliper together, one on the top left and on on the top right. after removing those bolts the caliper should be able to be lifted off. inside the caliper you will see the brake shoes. inspect them for uneven wear, pitting, and cracks. if any of those exist or the pads are just worn down to the point of being worthless then change them. the shoes are simply held on my two metal clams which can just be lifted and slid off. Do the same procedure for the rotor. Inspect for damages and replace if needed ( there is a minimum width that the rotor needs to be in order to function properly so after you remove it you may want to do one of two things. 1- take it to a local auto parts store that can "turn" rotors ( a fancy word for grinding) or 2- just buy new ones. they are relativly cheap. Then to put back together you will just need to reverse the steps.

I have a 93 ford explorer 4x4 automatic. The 4x4 doesn't engage, or does anything when the button is pushed. Is this something simple to fix? Thanks Duane

This will take two persons to do...with a light hammer or mallet, hit the 4x4 motor on the transfer case as another person is pushing the 4x4 high switch,while the vehicle is in neutral and the emergency brake on, AND FOOT ON THE BRAKE.BE CARFUL NOT TO RUN OVER YOUR HELPER!!!! If it starts to work,replace the 4x4 motor. The inside of the motor gets corrodid from water and dirt.

Front Brake disk repear\replacement

try going to real auto parts store not some chain franchise like pepboys or autozone ,with bolts means studs to a ford which will be a rotor with hub unit,and if it has just has holes then it's a slide on rotor or it needs to be pressed to your hub assembly,just go to a small parts store with someone who knows the difference,,2wheel or 4x4 makes all the difference.

1993 ford explorer - toublshooting fuse/electical problem

I believe the fuse for your starter is in the power distribution box, 93 explorer 4.0L 4X4. find diagram for this in Chilton Ford Ranger/Explorer/Mountaineer 1991-1999 Repair Manual 26688 page 6-43 Fig.88 Be aware that there are (4) figures for the 93 4.0L explorer and each shows a different part of the same engine wiring. See top right 'power distribution box' follow lines to the part of your engine you are concerned with, which fuse number, then look inside your engine, passenger fender, push down on the protective ?wall then pull the cover up, see your diagram and fuse numbers. The diagram for inside fuse box, page 6-31 fig.63 I hope this helps
