Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

I have a 2003 2WD f-150.

The rear rotor is loose, but i cannot pull it off for nothing.
I unhooked the parking brake cable but to no avail.
Should I just wail on it with a sledge or is there a "secret" I don't know about?

Try taking a brake spoon in and de-adjusting the parking brake shoes before you start hitting it. If it's loose like you say, while hitting it may bring it off eventually, its likely to break other things (possibly even the rotor itself) in the process. If your goal is to replace the rotor, go ahead and beat the **** out of it. If you plan to re-use it and turning the parking shoes down doesn't work, get a 2 pry bars or large screwdrivers (or a combination of the two) and pry it out from the 3 and 9 positions. once you get it off, I'd take the screwdriver and chip the rust lip off the inside of the hat so that it goes back on easier.

Brake shoe removel:

Depress and turn the retainers for the hold-down springs and pins to remove them from each shoe. Slide the brake shoe assembly--including the shoes and springs--down so you can disengage the top ends of the shoes from the cylinder and tilt them to lift them past the retaining plate.

Unhook the lower retracting spring from the front brake shoe to disconnect it. Spread the shoes apart at the bottom to remove the adjusting screw, the screw's retracting spring and the adjuster lever. Remove the front brake shoe.

Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.

Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.

    I just prrchase a 2000 GMC jimmy from a private owner, there is a rattle near the left rear tire and nobody can figue out what it is. It does not rattle when I an going faster that 40MPH,


    look for loose wires, fuel or brake lines.Check your shocks & the rubber inserts for cracks or missing pieces. Then check your parking brake cable and joint to see if there is play and possible hitting the frame or the floor. if still having a noise pull off the caliper and rotor to check you parking brake Assembly for loose or broken parts. the parking brake is a drum style on the inside of the rotor so unless you take them apart you can't check them. this is a common problem with springs falling off.
    I hope this help, please keep us posted on what you find wrong.

    2005 F-150 XL Emergency Brake will not totally disengage on the Left Rear Tire, Solutions?


    Hi,
    This is a comon problem in winter months. You need to trace the cable to the left rear tire and remove the dirt and or ice from the cable hook up to that brake. Gently work it free with oil. When you get down there you will see that it needs to be relaxed back to the slack position. It won't help to just give it more cable...you need to free up the mechanism.
    Hope this Helps,

    On a 2004 ford expedtion how do i disconnect the parking brake so i can change the rear rotors?


    in the rear on the inside of the assembly you have a small slot that an adjusting tool goes in. If the EBrake seems loose now the rotor may just slide off. If the slot is not thier you should have a adjuster on the cable under the car.

    Can not remove rear brake rotor on 2500hd caliper is removed thought a floating rear the rotor just came off is it something with the parking brake


    If you have the parking brake system located in the center of the rotor, (the parking brake cable goes inside the "hub" area, and not to the caliper) you have the internal parking brake shoes. The problem is that the drum part gets a rust lip built up and it's very difficult to pull off the rotor because it hangs up. Usually forcing it off stresses some of the hardware inside, but there is not much of an option.

    HOW TO CHANGE THE REAR BRAKE FOR BENZ ML320 2001?


    The rear brakes are very easy to change. There is nothing to worry about due to it being a 4-wheel vehicle and you only need to change the rotors if they are at minimum specs(printed on the rotor itself). If you don't have a micrometer to check the rotor thickness, then look at the edge of the rotor for a lip. A tall lip on the edge indicates it is best to change the rotors. Also, if the mileage is over 60k miles or you live in a cold climate(where there is a lot of sand/salt on the roads), it's a good idea to double check your parking brakes. But be careful when removing the rotors, they can hang up on the parking brake pad and potentially pull the pad loose. If the rotors are frozen on, use a lubricant like wd-40 on the center of the rotor and let it soak in, then tap around the outside edge of the rotor/hub area with a hammer to break it free.

    Changing rear rotors


    The parking brake shouldn't be holding them on unless you have the brake set. Don't hit them with a hammer or you'll damage the parking brake shoes and springs. Check the cables to make sure they aren't rusted or binding. More likely than not this is the case as the shoes have dug into the rotor. If they are, use a screwdriver to press the shoes off the rotor as you or an assistant slides them off.

    Changing rear rotors


    The park brake shoes are on the inside of the rotors, you need to back off the adjustment on the park brake shoes to get the rotors off. They are cable operted and that is were the adjuster is.
