In short, Remove wheels and tires. Remove brake caliper and brake caliper mount. Remove axle. Take nuts off inside axle and remove entire hub. From back side remove bolts holding the rotors to the hubs.... remove rotor and reassemble in reverse. You will need new oil seals.... This is a heavy duty truck and has some big parts and some really large and tight bolts. Not a job for the meek!

SOURCE: Procedure for replacing the rear rotors and pads

Remove the tire and there will be to bolts holding the calipers on, once you remove the two bolts the caliper will slide off, you will move it to the side out of the way and you will now pull off the rotor, you may have to give it a tap or two to free it but it should come off fairly easy, make sure you have the same new size as the old one and just slide it on. The next thing will be is to pull off the old brake pads, they will pop out. The next step is to return the piston to the in position, by using a C clamp and one of the old pads, place it over the piston and turn the c clamp until the piston is back into the housing, now just snap the new pads into the caliper and place the caliper back on the rotor and secure the two bolts. The replacing of brake rotors and pads is a really simple task and if all goes well it take about 10-20 minutes per wheel.

Procedure for replacing rear rotors with disc brakes and abs on ford ranger 2010


I will try to give you a heads up on this job. The hard part is the emergency brakes hidden inside the rear rotors. You need to get slack from the self adjusters on the brake cable where the cable spools up under the dash on the emergency brake activator. Once you get a little slack, then you can shove the emergency brake levers to their neutral position. This will create slack inside the emergency brake drum and allow you to remove the rear rotor like you normally would for a front rotor. Otherwise the emergency brakes will create problems for removing the rotors.

If you have only worked on front rotors, the rear set is more difficult due to the emergency brakes. Get high quality replacement linings for the emergency shoes. Get new pins and mounting springs to secure the linings to the housing.

You may find some good Youtube videos for this repair. Or you may be better off to do the fronts yourself and take it in for the rear set. Realize there are more parts to buy for the rear since there are 2 sets of brakes back there. I do not like this system because it is not durable and the drum portion rusts to the point of uselessness. If you find a company to give a lifetime warranty for this repair you would be ahead.

2003 Envoy SLT V8--How can I adjust the parking brake? recently replaced per dealer cable and was very tight, then back at dealer for rotors ,E-brake then very loose. Back to dealer for adjustment=a little...


The parking brake on your envoy is like a small set of drum brakes mounted inside the "hat" of your rear rotors. To adjust it, remove the rear wheels and remove the rubber cap on the rotor. If you don't have a rubber cap look at the brake backing plate and look for an access plug. Rotate the rotor and look inside towards the top or bottom for a star wheel. Rotate the star wheel like you would if you were adjusting drum brakes. You want a very small amount of drag on the rotor while rotating it. If you get too much drag, rotate the star wheel the opposite direction.

Picture of 1999 Chrysler Cirrus rear disc parking brake system. Is parking brake operated by rear caliper? If so, is there a special procedure for moving the piston inward when replacing the brake pads?


Parking brake is operated by a cable and not the caliper. Your car has disc brake pads for squeezing the rotor to stop, the parking brake has drum type brake shoes that push out on the inside of the rotor. Changing the disc pads only requires squeezing the piston back in like usual.

Help with doing pads and rotors in back.


Interesting!... What/Where did you hear about 'factory bolts shearing" I've done some research and have found NOTHING with regard to this. The rear brake service procedure is no different than the front (except, you must release the emergency brake in order to remove the rear rotors). I don't understand your concern. I sincerely hope you are resurfacing (remachining) rotors and replacing pads. It's important rotors be remachined (resurfaced) when replacing pads... if not, rotors can overheat and wear out faster than their normal lifetime.
