The emergency brake only affects the rear wheels if that is the rooter you are removing then yes the emergency brake must be off. Some Chevrolet models have a drum for the emergency brake attached to the rooter for disk brake.

SOURCE: Brake rotors

Are there small retainer clips on the studs still? More than likely its just rust built up on the center hub. Take some sand paper to the center hub, as long as e-brake is released and caliper is off, it will come off. I'm not familar with the toyota sienna's but if they have internal drum e-brakes, I would back off the adjuster if they do.

How to change parking brakes on 2003 dodge ram


  • 1 Determine which type of emergency brakes your Dodge Ram will need. Emergency brakes typically function by activating the regular braking system on the driving wheels. The emergency brakes for the Dodge Ram have used rear disc brakes since 2001.
  • 2 Release the parking brake pedal completely and raise your vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel with a socket wrench and disconnect the brake caliper from the caliper adapter. Slide the rotor from the axle shaft.
  • 3 Install the new brake rotor onto the axle shaft and complete the installation by reversing the removal steps.
  • 4 Tighten the wheel mounting nuts in the proper sequence with a torque wrench until the nuts are torqued to 47.5 foot/pounds Repeat the tightening sequence to torque the nuts to 95 foot/pounds.
  • 5 Apply and release the park brake pedal to seat and adjust the parking brake cables. Road test the vehicle to ensure the vehicle's brake system is functioning.
  • 6 Place tool C-3919 or the equivalent over the park brake shoes and use the star wheel adjuster to lower the park brake shoes until the lining just touches the jaws on the tool.

    Replacing pads and rotor


    Front and back rotors are different. For front rotors, after you remove the wheel you need to remove the bolts holding the caliper to the mounting spindle. The bolt can be a standard 6 face head, a recessed hex, or even a torx or star head recessed bolt.

    With bolts removed, the caliper can be worked away from the anti-rattle clips the caliper slides on. These clips are called "hardware" and should be replaced.

    The caliper pistons need to be pressed back into position because the new pads are thicker than what you removed. The calipers should be tied and suspended and not allowed to hang by their brake lines while you work with the rotors. Use a "c" clamp and an old brake pad to press the pistons back in. Sometimes it is good to remove the cap on the Master cylinder to allow for brake fluid to travel back to the Master.

    Either replace or turn the old rotors and then put the brake hardware in place. Lube the caliper slides. then as a unit position the pads into the caliper and hang the caliper over the rotor. The caliper will hang and pivot into place. Replace and tighten the mounting bolts.

    The rear brakes are more of a problem due to a second set of Emergency brakes in rear assemblies. So you have 2 sets of rear brakes, the Emergencies requiring clearance to remove the rear rotors. Some car models require readjustment of the Emergency cables before reassembly.

    In all, I would suggest that you be an observer for your first brake job. At least get a Video of the process at a number of autoparts stores. You can wind up with a car you can not drive or reassemble without help.

    How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?


    Front brake
    Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
    brake_pads_rotor.jpg
    Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
    Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
    Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
    brake_pad_set.jpg
    Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
    Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
    Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
    remove_brake_caliper.jpg
    Remove Front Brake Caliper
    After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
    Step 4: Remove Brake Pads
    remove_brake_pads.jpg
    Remove Front Brake Pads
    Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
    Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
    remove_brake_pads_holder.jpg
    Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
    Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
    Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
    brake_rotor.jpg
    Remove Brake Rotor
    With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
    Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
    compress_caliper.jpg
    Resetting Brake Caliper
    To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
    Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
    new_brake_rotor.jpg
    Install Brake Rotor
    Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
    Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
    new_brake_pads.jpg
    Installing New Brake Pads
    Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
    Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
    front_brake_rotor_pads.jpg
    Re-Install front Bake Caliper
    Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

    Need to know how to get to the emergency brake on an 2002 ford explorer behind the disk brake.(rear driver side)


    First remove caliper slider assembly & caliper. Will need to probably spray penetrating oil around rotor hub. Hit rotor on side of hub with sledge hammer & it will slide off. Inside are your emergency brake shoes.

    How do i remove the rear rotors


    Realize all that is holding them on after you take off caliper slider assembly, is rust & possibly rear emergency brake shoes, inside drum inside rotor. I always engage emergency brake 1 to 2 clicks then ride around the block. That gets rid of rust & ridge on drum. Release emergency brake.Jack up truck, remove tire. Spray around center of rear hub, near studs also, with a good penetrating oil. Then remove 2 retaining bolts that hold rear caliper slider to rear spindle, & remove slider assy & caliper. Now take good sledge hammer & whack center & outside of rotor. Sometimes it takes a bunch of good hits, then they come off.

    How do you remove the front brake rotor on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe?


    To remove the brake rotor, you must first remove the brake pads and caliper. There are two bolts that hold the brake caliper in place. Remove the two bolts and tie the caliper up out of the way. Be careful not to break the brake line connected to the back of caliper. Once the caliper is removed, simply slide the rotor off. To install a new rotor, simply slide rotor over studs and replace the caliper with new brake pads. It is as simple as that.

    Replace rear brake pads


    Rear disc brake pads offer better performance and are not as affected by moisture like conventional brake shoe style brakes are. Rear disc brakes are similar to front disc brakes. The main difference is that rear disc brake systems must incorporate the emergency brake system. There are two methods widely used for the emergency brake with rear disc systems. The first system is a brake shoe inside the brake disc that is actuated by the emergency brake lever. The second is a screw style actuator inside the brake caliper. When activated the brake pads are forced into the brake disc and held tightly by the emergency brake lever.
    READ COMPLETELY BEFORE STARTING
    Step 1 - Identify Rear Disc Brake Components
    rear_brake_pads.jpg Rear disc brake assembly includes; rear brake disc, rear brake pads, brake caliper mount and a caliper mounting screw. (Note: Some vehicles do not have the rotor mounting screw.)
    Step 2 - Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Mount Bolts
    rear_brake_pads_2.jpg To replace rear brake pads and rotors the rear brake caliper needs to be removed. First loosen the rear brake caliper mount bolts and remove them. Turn counter clockwise.
    Step 3 - Lift Rear Brake Caliper from The Caliper Mount
    rear_brake_pads_3.jpg After the caliper mount bolts have been removed, gently lift the brake caliper from the caliper mount. Inspect the caliper slides; they should move freely in the caliper mount. Remove rear brake pads and hardware.

    Step 4 - Removing Caliper Mount Bolts
    rear_brake_pads_4.jpg With a socket wrench or other appropriate removal tool, loosen the rear brake caliper mounting bolts. Remove bolts and lift the caliper mount and remove it from the vehicle. Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole. Tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub holding on tightly, using both hands. You do not want to drop the rotor.

    Step 5 - Removing Rear Brake Rotor
    rear_brake_rotor.jpg Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole, tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub, hold on using both hands and do not drop.

    Step 6 - Install New Brake Rotor
    rear_brake_rotor_2.jpg Check the new rotor against the old brake rotor to make sure they are the same size. Clean the mating surface on the wheel hub before the new brake rotor is installed. Reinstall rotor retainer screw.
    Step 7 - Reset Rear Brake Caliper
    rear_brakes_7.jpg Before new brake pads can be installed, the rear brake caliper must be reset. The reset tool winds the piston back into position so the new brake pads will fit. This style of brake caliper will not compress with a clamp tool; it can only be reset with the proper reset tool.
    Step 8 - Reinstall Rear Caliper Mount and Install New Rear Brake Pads
    rear_brake_rotor_3.jpg After the caliper has been reset, reinstall caliper mounting bolts and make sure the bolts are tight. Then match up the old brake pads to the new brake pads. They should be exactly the same except, of course; the old ones will be worn out. Check the new brake pads for proper fit and install any brake hardware that is required.
    Step 9 - Remount Rear Brake Caliper
    rear_brake_rotor_4.jpg Reinstall the brake caliper, align brake pad hardware and reinstall caliper mounting bolts. (Note: align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston.) Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly. This operation forces the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors. DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE until proper brake pedal operation resumes. When test driving vehicle listen for any unusual noises during the operation of the brakes.
    WARNING! Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components. Never move a car without proper brake pedal operation.

    Emerg. Brake Drum Removel on E450 .


    The park/emerg. brakes should be integrated with the rear brake rotors. To replace them involves removing the calipers and brackets. You should be able to slide the rotors off. You may have to back the park brake shoes off with the shoe adjusters to remove the rotors due to the rust lip that often develops within, but they should slide off once freed. Hope this helps.

    Rear brakes on 2005 F150


    You can't remove the rotors because the emergency brake is tight on the inside of the rotors. Make sure it's not engaged when you are working on the rear brakes. Block the front tires for saftey. Then you have to remove the rear calipers from the mounting brackets, there are two bolts that hold the calipers on. Make sure you hang the calipers securily with some wire so you don't damage the rubber brake line hose. Then you need to adjust the emergency parking brake shoes in order to remove the rotors. Theres a rubber plug on the backside of the rear hubs, once you look at the back of the hub you'll see the plug. It's on the top. Once you take out the plug, you need to use a screw driver to turn the star spindel. You need to turn the star spindel counter-clockwise in order to give yourself enough clearance to remove the rotors. The beauty of this design is that ford incorporated a drum and caliper system together, but it's difficult to take off the rotors if the emergency brake shoes are to tight. The inside of the rotors acts as the drums for the emergency brake system. I've done this and it's not that hard, but, I did have to replace the emergency brake shoes because they were worn out and the shoes fell off the metal backing plates when I finally got the rotors to come off. They only glued these shoes onto the backing plates, they don't rivet them so take your time getting the rotors off or you can damage the emergency brake shoes, but if you do they are cheap at napa. My service guide says to install the new rotors, use a couple of lug nuts to hold it on, then adjust the star spindal for the emergency brake all the way clockwise until you can't turn it anymore, then you must back it off 8 clicks counter-clockwise. Make sure the emergency brake is not engaged when you are doing this, the 8 clicks backwards compensates for when you do engage the parking brake because the shoes expands outwards. This adjustment sets the emergency brakes so they work properly. Once the emergency brake is properly set you can't remove the rear rotors, which is what your initial problem is. Then install the rubber plug back in the hole, put on the new pads and calipers and you're good to go.
