The best thing to do is to go to your nearest auto store and buy a Haynes manual for your specific auto, then you will have the solutions to many such problems.
If you don't do that, what you can do is take off the opposite wheel and take a very careful look at how the brakes are assembled on that one. The one you are working on is simply a mirror image.
I strongly sugges the manual, but I hope this helps.

How to remove studs from right rear of a 2003 ford explorer i just want to replace the studs


You have the tire off. So take the brake clapper off.then the roder should come right off. Lay the roder down and hit the bad stud with a hamer it should come out easy. Put a new one in the same way but from the back.

Accessing the rear hatch brake light on a 1999 Ford Expedition


There should be 2 screws holding the lenses on for the hatch light, remove those and cover comes off. The plate lights, access them under the rear bumper, they twist and pull out, then just pull the bulb out the connector. The running board light, under board, which will take the light assembly out, or a small flat head screwdriver, pop the lens off the top of board.

Change the brakes on 2007 sport trac


it has front and rear disc brakes, disc brakes are very simple to change out. Most disc brakes have two bolts that hold them on, one on the bottom one on the top on the inside of the brake caliper, they may be an allen head, or just a bolt. Remove them counter-clockwise. After you remove the two bolts, lift up and away on the caliper and the whole assembly will come off. Once you pull the assembly off you will see the two pads, one of them is driven by a piston, the other one is fixed. Remove the fixed one, they just pop off (have little metal clips you may have to slide the pad off). Take a C-clamp or something comparable to squeeze with, place it on the back of the caliper and on the old pad thereby squeezing the cylinder back into the piston, once you squeeze the cylinder back into the piston, it will give you room needed for thicker new brake pads. Piston should retract with the c-clamp fairly easy, shouldn't be a whole lot of resistance. Remove c-clamp after you get it to retract and remove old pad. Put new pad on, just like you took the old ones off. All four are basically the same to change out, they all have two bolts holding them on. You pull those, get the pistons to retract and replace the worn pads, put them back on, line up holes, put bolts back in... and your good to go. When you get back in the car and turn the key on, you may have to pump the brakes a few times.

Very poor brake performance after changing rear shoes


It sounds like your self-adjusters are not assembled correctly allowing them to back off when braking.

Brake lights on '99 Expedition sporadically light up. It seems that the cable that goes into the switch assembly for the brake light is a little too kinked so if I attempt to move the cable over and take...


"Those assemblies" change from often year to year and always model to model changes or differences. But just go ahead and rip into it, it's always easier the second time around-then you know what you are doing. What's the problem? When you break the little plastic pieces, then you have found its tensile strength.

I've seen only a few parts that are very difficult to replace. A lot are difficult to adjust correctly, but most are easy to replace.

Replacing rear brakes on 1985 Ford F250 4x4


start by securing the truck. then jack up the rear end and take the tire off. then take the 8 bolts out of the floating hub assembly that sticks out of the wheel. pull out the axle shaft. then using either a 32mm socket or a hammer and chisel remove the large retaining nut. then pull the next spacer out with a pair of plyers, then use the 32mm socket or hammer and chisel to remove the next bolt. after that pull the drum and hub assembly off and make sure to catch the outer wheel bearing that will fall out when you pull the drum off. look at how the brakes and springs are setup and if you can take a picture. then after replacing the shoes and hardware replace the drum assembly. make sure the wheel bearing you caught goes in with smaller end first. put the last 32mm nut you took off back then the small spacer and make sure one of the holes on the spacer line up with the nub that sticks out of the nut you just put on then replace the very first nut you took off. slide the axle shaft back in wiggling it side to side. replace the 8 bolts. and pit on the tire and repeat on the next side. and dont worry about the fluid that comes out when you remove the axle shaft because its not enough to make a difference. yes its a pain in the *** but it beats the dealer price of 500 to replace.
