No, you shouldn't have to take anything off **** the calipers, they are held on by 2 bolts in the rear, The whole caliper thing is on a slide so that it can move, remember this when removing and replacing, sometimes you have to lock the nut behind it to get the bolts off, some don't, also, the new pads will need a wider opening between the piston, check to make sure they are not self adjusting, they will thread in or out, and if not then take a giant C-clamp and s l o w l y,,, mash the pistons back in, if you do it fast, you will have brake fluid gushing all over the engine. Hope this helps.

I changed my front wheel bearings on my 2009 Mazda and now I have ABS BRAKE AND POWER SYEERING LIGHTS ON.


by changing the wheel bearings you have to remove the brake callipers and hubs
the abs sensor reads off the back of the hub so check each wheel to ensure that the wire is still connected to the sensor and that the sensor is the correct distance from the rotor on the back of the hub, the rotor for the sensor looks like a bar code or segmented piece around the hub center
it may have fallen off or been damaged during the bearing change

My 2003 mercury mountaineer ABS light is staying on. manually, the brakes work however they shimmy.changed the brake pads,checked the brake fluid and ABS fuse,bud when changing the pads,did now clean the...


I replaced the hub bearing assembly on drivers side twice and the light stayed on and the brakes worked fine. It was the wires (visible just above the tire on the frame) that rubbed against the frame that had shorted out. It was simply repaired and clip-stripped up out of the way. The light has been off every since then.

Front hub bearing, remove tire, remove caliper and caliper holding bracket, you do not have to remove brake caliper from brake hose, just set it aside, if 4X4 remove front axle nut that goes through center of rotor, also remove brake rotor, disconnect elec, A.B.S connector, remove three bolts on back side of hub bearing, remove hub bearing, some times you will need to knock hub bearing out with a hammer.Reverse to install new hub bearing.

How do i get rear hub off to change brakes


First make sure that you block your front tires and that your emergency brake is off. You then should be able to take a hammer and tap (strongly) the hub and use a small pry bar or big flat head screw driver and pry off the hub. If the hub still proves to be stubborn than there is a brake adjustment tool that you can purchase that you will use to back off the tension on your rear brakes.

If you still can't get the hub off then call all of your local big chain auto stores and see if you can borrow a universal wheel hub puller/ rear brake drum remover tool. There is one that loans tools for free (AZ).

Can I change my brakes to change my bolt pattern?


No
You will need to change the Hubs THEN the brakes to fit the hubs.
But changing the brakes only will NOT change the pattern
