If you are referring to those 5 small black caps that go on the lugs then there is no allen key for them. You can just stick a small screwdriver into the hex shaped hole and work it off. 4 of the 5 have a hex shaped clip on the back that fits over the standard lugs and the other one has a circular clip that fits over the security lug. Be sure to match them up properly when you reinstall them.

got me going here as its been many a year since i done a hub reduction ,they were still running fodens and ERF in my time ,now from what i remember you dont need to as the drum goes over the top and it is bolted to the hub with big allen key type bolts .Even if it isnt this type then undooing the half shaft bolts will allow the shaft to come out and behind is two big locking nuts and removing these will allow the hub to come off but the older mercedes like the 1418 and the 160? had a allen bolt in the side of the nut that locked it to the half shaft and you had to cut allen key down to make it fit in the gap ,whatever you do if you remove the hub and thats to make sure you put some grease in the bearings before you re-assemble as the oil can take a time to reach the bearings ,LM grease will do nicely for this and dont forget to unwind the adjuster before you try to pull the drum off or it will not come off and wind the airbrake off as well although they had rods in my time with a rachet handbrake ,sorry the steam ones were a bit before my time though but i do remember the old scammel three wheeled tractor units and of course the two stroke commer diesel with no reverse you stopped the engine and started it in reverse so you had 4 reverse gears ,Also no truck licence needed --- showing my age here

I have a 93 f-150 xlt extended cab 4x4. with auto locking hubs w/push button in cab. I need to replace the rotor. I have removed the outer cap. there another cap inside how do i take this cap off?


Remove the allen bolts outside,next use a pick to remove the next one.It will be held tight by the grease behind it.Next one i believe use a screwdriver and turn it counter clockwise,should have two notches on the sides of the washer/screw.Should be able to slide off bearings after that.

How hard is it to replace a rear strut


it is fairly easy
1. jack up remove wheel, block car on frame!!! not on the strut
2. remove two big bolts on bottom of strut then have to drive them out of hub housing (splined about 1 inch on head side of bolt.
3. remove the sway bar connector rod (allen key and wrench. or if allen is stripped u can use wrench just in front of boot, so one inside and undo the one nut you can see facing you)
4. open trunk pull carpet back on top of wheel well so you can see 3 nuts in a triangle with one in the center DO NOT REMOVE CENTER NUT this is what holds spring to strut assembly..put a jack under strut to hold it in place .remove the 3 nuts.
5. pry the bottom of strut out of hub
6. drop out strut and spring assembly.
7. use 2 spring depressors to squeeze the spring so u may remove large center nut, use wrench and allen key.
8. replace as a whole unit or just the strut. the whole unit is more expensive and if so delete step 7
9. reverse the steps to install.
10. make sure all bolts are tight and check with torque wrench for proper tightness.
11. MAKE SURE LOL you dont want to go for a drive with any of these parts loose. If u r not experienced take it to a shop.

installation is in reverse,put hub and greased bearings on spindel tighten center nut while turning hub and tighten the nut very tight,the hub will be very hard to turn then start loosening the spindle nut and spinning the hub,holding the top of the hub push in and out if you feel it rocking on the bearings it is to loose tighten the slowly until there is no play put a cotter back in, put the small hubcap back on then using the c clamp and a piece wood put the c clamp over the back of the brake caliper and slide the piece over the piston cup on the inside to protect the piston,tighten the clamp until the piston is colapsed all the way, put brake pads back on put caliper on,put a small amount of grease on the smooth part of the allen bolts not on the threads,tighten the bolts.

How do I remove the manual locking hubs from my 1990 Ford F250 ?


there is also a nut inside that holds hub to axle

I have a 95 Chevy suburban and I am trying to change the rotor and can not get it off. The lugs are attached to the rotor and not sure what I should do


Removing: Loosen lug nuts (7/8") and spindle nut (36mm). Lift truck. Remove lug nuts, spindle nut, and wheel. Remove 2 bolts (3/8" allen) holding calipers on. Hold the calipers up with a bungee cord. I attached it to the sheet metal of the fender. Remove 4 bolts (15mm) from rear of hubs. Once these bolts are removed you can move the shield that is in-between the hub and the axle(I think). You are moving it to get access to the allen bolt that holds the ABS sensor on. Once you move the shield then you can look through the top of the rotor through the slots and see the sensor line and bolt. I don't remember what size allen this one took. You do need a long allen wrench though. Disconnect sensing line from hub. Now the rotor is ready to come off. I had to use a pry bar to remove this gently working each side until it popped off. Once the rotor is removed, you need to hammer out the lug bolts. Then you have to tap the rotor away from the hub. This took a little work. Then check each of the lug bolts by screwing the lug nuts on them. They should go all the way down by hand. If they don't - go buy new bolts $2 a piece. Installing: Position new rotor on hub. Get some dry ice from your local grocery store and freeze the bolts for about 10 minutes. Pull one bolt out of the ice at a time and install on the rotor and tighten the bolt with the lug nut. I put the nuts on upside down and used a 7/8" wrench and mallet to tap on the wrench to get these as tight as possible. You also have to tap on the head of the bolt and repeat the wrench tapping. Do this for each bolt pulling one out of the ice at a time. You do not have to get the rotor and hub completely together but get it as close together as possible. Once all of the lug bolts are in it is time to put the rotor on the truck. Ensure the shield is on the spindle and install the rotor, again, this takes some work. Once the rotor is on, connect the ABS sensing line. Line up the shield and install 4 bolts to rear of hub. You can align these by moving the hub, not the rotor. Install the caliper, remember to put brake grease on these 2 bolts. You may have to compress the caliper slightly. To do this remove the brake pad that has the circular part of the caliper touching it. Open the brake fill cap on the master cylinder. Use a C-clamp to compress the circular part. Reinstall the brake pad and brake fill cap. Install the caliper. Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts. I used a cheater bar on my tire iron and ensured that the lug bolts were flush with the head of the lug nuts. Then I removed the wheel to verify that the gap between the rotor and the hub was gone. Reinstall wheel, tighten lug nuts, and tighten spindle nut. Once both brakes have been replaced, start up the truck and pump the brakes several times till you feel some tension when pressing them.

What size wrench to use to remove brake calliper


Hi

If we're talking front calipers then lot of Fords have allen bolts holding the calipers in place rather than conventional bolts.

There's two on each caliper, and each one is inside a deep rubber sleeve with a plastic pop out cap on them (if the caps are still there of course!), so basically, you need to pop the plastic caps out of the rubber sleeves and then find an allen (hex) key to fit the allen bolts, and then you're good to go, but you'll need a longish handle on the hex key and get some anti-sieze spray on there because the slides may put up a fight.

Very best regards

Geordie
