The bolts themselves should be immobile, but the calipers should slide smoothly on the bolts themselves. Apply a coat of white lithium grease on the bolts before reassembling the calipers back on them. make sure to clean off and inspect the bolts first to make sure they are free of dirt or rust.

Well, the bolts should be tight but the caliper should slide on the bolts. Another issue is that the pads should also slide in their grooves. My explorer built up some rust there which prevented their movement and cause the brakes to bind up.

My ford explorer 1997 is having trouble reversing on the left front side it seems it sticks on the wheel but it drives in drive perfect and just had the tranny done,so it is in the front wheel well so far


Ok, put the vehicle in park apply the parking break and jack up the front wheels using jack stands remove the front tires! On the inside of the caliper are two slidebolts and on the bottom slidebolt there should be a bolt remove it and flip the caliper up to the top your brake pads if not worn down to nothing are held in place by a caliper anchor assembly try to turn the rotor by hand counter clockwise and clockwise if it turns then go to the passenger side and repeat! If it turns the next question is do you have four wheel drive or two? If four wheel drive then turning the rotor listen for any noise like grinding if you don't hear it on either side then you have what's called a brake hose with a deviated inner lining causing fluid to reach the caliper but returning to the master cylinder slowly? Replace the calipers by swinging them back down onto the rotor making sure your brake pads are back in place the bottom slide bolt may need to be pushed in to clear the caliper! Replace your keeper bolt but do not over tighten the retaining bolt use a torque guage or try to recall how much force you exerted to loosen the bolt! Overtightening the bolt will break it and loss of braking can result! If you still cannot move in reverse then the clutches in the transmission may be worn out or the reverse gear may be worn and rebuilding the transmission is required! First see if the wheels turn while you have the tires on the vehicle usually it is a bearing or a brake pad has met the end of its lufe and needs to be replaced? I hope this helps you!

How do I remove the front rotors from my 1999 honda accord


Removal & Installation

d4d9fd4.gif
After removing the caliper body, unfasten the retaining bolts and remove the caliper mounting bracket, in order to remove the rotor

  1. Use a siphon or clean turkey baster to remove about half of the brake fluid from the master cylinder.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle and remove the tire/wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the caliper mounting bolts, then lift the caliper assembly away from the brake rotor.
  4. Use a suitable piece of wire to suspend the caliper assembly. This will prevent the weight of the caliper from being supported by the brake flex hose which will damage the hose.
  5. Once the caliper body and brake pads are removed, unfasten the caliper bracket mounting bolts, then remove the bracket from the rotor.
  6. Remove the rotor retaining screws.
  7. Remove the brake rotor by pulling it straight off the wheel mounting studs or if seized in place, remove the stubborn brake rotor by threading in two 8 x 1.25mm bolts, two turns at a time until the brake rotor is released.
To install:
  1. If necessary, completely retract the piston into the caliper using a large C-clamp or other suitable tool as provided in the front disc brake pad replacement procedures in this section.
  2. Install the brake rotor onto the wheel hub and tighten the mounting screws.
  3. Install the caliper mounting bracket and secure with the retaining bolts.
  4. Install the caliper and pad assembly over the brake rotor and mounting bracket and install the mounting bolts.
  5. Fill the master cylinder to the proper level with fresh brake fluid.
  6. Install the tire/wheel assembly and lower the vehicle.
  7. Pump the brake pedal until the brake pads are seated and a firm pedal is achieved before attempting to move the vehicle.
CAUTION Do not move the vehicle until a firm pedal is obtained.

  1. Road test the vehicle to check for proper brake operation.

I need to know the procedure for r and r on a front rotor if this is something that can be done at home with limited tools?


1999 Taurus/Sable Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1999 Taurus/Sable Workshop Manual REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Procedure revision date: 06/25/1998 Disc Removal
  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  1. Remove wheel and tire assembly. Be careful to avoid damage or interference with caliper bleeder screw fitting and front disc brake rotor shield (2K004).
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Handle front disc brake rotor (1125) and disc brake caliper (2B120) assembly in such a way as to prevent deformation of front disc brake rotor , and nicking, scratching or contamination of brake linings/rotor surfaces.
    NOTE: To prevent damage, do not allow disc brake caliper to hang by the front brake hose (2078) .


    Remove caliper anchor plate bolts and discard. Position disc brake caliper out of the way. Prevent separation of caliper housing from anchor bracket because contamination of guide pin journals can occur.
  1. NOTE: If excessive force must be used during front disc brake rotor removal, the front disc brake rotor should be checked for runout prior to installation.


    If additional force is required to remove front disc brake rotor , apply Rust Penetrant and Inhibitor F2AZ-19A501-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M99C56-A on front and rear rotor/hub mating surfaces. First, strike front disc brake rotor between lug bolts (1107) with a plastic hammer. If this does not work, attach 2-3 Jaw Puller 205-D027 (D80L-1013-A) or equivalent and remove front disc brake rotor . Remove front disc brake rotor from wheel hub (1104) assembly by pulling it off the lug bolts.
Installation
  1. If original front disc brake rotor is being installed, make sure rotor braking and mounting surfaces are clean.
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure to clean rust and foreign material from rotor and hub mounting faces when installing new or old front disc brake rotors will result in high rotor runout, which will speed up the development of brake roughness shudder vibration.
    Apply a small amount of Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A to pilot diameter of front disc brake rotor.
  1. Install front disc brake rotor on wheel hub assembly.
  1. Install disc brake caliper and new caliper anchor bracket bolts on front disc brake rotor . Tighten caliper anchor bracket bolts to 88-118 Nm (65-87 lb-ft).
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure to tighten lug nuts (1012) in a star pattern may result in high rotor runout, which will speed up the development of brake roughness, shudder and vibration.
    Install wheel and tire assembly on vehicle. Tighten lug nuts to 115-142 Nm (85-104 lb-ft) using Rotunda Accutorq® Lug Nut Socket 164-R0303 or equivalent on a 1/2 inch air impact wrench, or use a torque wrench.
  1. Lower vehicle.
  1. Pump brake pedal prior to moving vehicle to position brake linings.
  1. Road test vehicle.

Changing front brake pads on a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac


I'm guessing you have disc brakes in the front of the Explorer. If so, you need to unscrew the two bolts that hold the caliper on.(they'll be either hex or allen bolts) If the caliper does not slide off, take a C=clanp and slowly back the piston down on the caliper. This should free up the caliper so that it can be removed. Make sure you grease the slider pins for the caliper when you reassenble.
