Wheel Bearing on Focuses are integrated in the brake drum..need to take the center nut off thats under the dome shaped dust shield..bearing will come out with the drum..most new drums come with the bearing..I'd suggest replacing it when you take it off..more often than not when you take the drum and bearing assembly off the bearing falls apart

You may have to loosen the brake shoes. And also "bang" on the drum with a small sledge hammer. Generally the will be rusted on and may require a good amount of force.

I need to remove the rear hub on my focus tdci 2002


Use the drum puller and tap the back side of the drum from with a hammer, and keep tightening the puller. It will come off if you have the security screw's out. The reason it's hard to pull off is BC the brakes are grabbing the drum

How do you remove the rear brake drum?


Before you begin make sure your emergency brake is off.

1. Jack up the car and remove rear tires.
2. With a 13mm socket and ratchet remove the 4 bolts that are on the back of the hub assembly. (You will need an extension and a universal joint adapter)
3. Pull the drum off and the spindle will come off with it, giving you access to the shoes, wheel cylinder, hold down hardware, etc... (you may need to adjust your brake shoes so the drum will slide off easier.)

Do not undo the nut in the middle of the drum (under the dust cap) unless you absolutely need to turn the drum or replace the drum as the threads on the spindle are known to strip very easily. Should you need to take it off the socket for the spindle nut is a 30mm.

2001 Focus zx3 rear brakes- pads or drums???


If they look like a smaller version of your front brakes where you can see the disc (should be shiny on the side of the disc where the pad touches the rotor) then you have disk brakes.

If it's all black, or all kinda of rusted looking and all you see is a "cap" over everything behind the rim, then it'll be a drum...

95% of the zx3's have drums
only 5% of zx3's had discs. The ones that have disc brakes, also came with traction control as part of the package.

Need to remove rear brakes on a 2005 ford focus


Some people will tell you to remove the four bolt behind the drum but i think it is much easier to remove the middle bolt with a 30mm ratchet. But be careful to torque correctly the nut in place. I think it's 140 lbs i'm really not sure. If you do it by the four bolt, be careful with the abs sensor, i break mine lol
