Take the wheel off. then the grease cap. There will be a keeper that has 2 screws, take those out, then remove the keeper. You will see another keeper, but this one is actually a nut. There are two round holes on the keeper, take a punch, or a common screwdriver, and a hammer and tap it off. If will spin. Make sure that you keep these parts free of dirt, as the wheel bearing will pick it up and ruin it. Once you have these removed, then the wheel assembly will slide right off. When you are installing them make sure that you have seated the wheel unit on before you thread the nut on. Tighten the nut as far as you can using a screwdriver to spin it on, and then tap it tight with the screwdriver and hammer, make sure that you do not get it too tight, or you will cause the bearing to wear prematurely.

The rear breaks have pads and rotor, but also look like they have a drum set up. How do I remove the combination rotor and drum?

remove the caliper and the pads.remove the caliper bracket that is around the rotor that the caliper sits on.then some of these have 2 screws that hold the rotor to the hub,remove the screws and hit the centre of the rotor near the hub.if it doesn`t use screws then hit the rotor near the hub to pop it may have to heat up the rotor with a torch and hit it again to get it loose.if it uses an e-brakes system inside the rotor(the part that looks like a drum) then you may have to back off the e-brakes like you would with just drum brakes,or you could try to pry off the rotor knowing you may have to replace things inside the rotor for the e-brake system.

Hi! i have my nissan terrano 2004 model 2.7 tdi, my problem i don't know if its in my disk pad or in my rotor disk co'z when aim in the road my break is noisy i replace it several times but it comes...

It's good to have the rotors turned when you replace your brake pads. It should not cost too much. And it keeps the new pads from wearing down so fast.

How do I adjust my parking brake on my 1996 Nissan 2300 pick up?

Do you have drum or disc brakes?
If you have drum brakes then you will need to jack up the rear of the vehicle until the tire has lost contact, remove the tire and hub to check the brake shoe lining. If it is good, then you will replace the hub and tire, if they are bad, you will want to replace the shoes. Once you have reinstalled the hub and tire you will have to use a brake spoon to manually adjust the rear brake. There will be a small black rubber cover that is oblong, you will remove it and that will allow you access to the adjuster. You will turn the adjuster until you can bearly spin the rear tire. I would recommend doing this to both the driver and passenger side of the vehicle. If you have disc brakes, then you will want to remove the rotor and under the rotor you will see a set of small brake shoes that are used to grasp and hold as parking brakes. If they are good then you will adjust them accordingly

How to adjust the handbrake on a terrano ll

On the inboard side of the rear wheel hubs, you will find an oval rubber plug, pry this plug out, to gain access to the brake adjuster.
Pull the handbrake up two clicks.
Jack and support. Remove the rear wheel, and adjust the brake using a screw driver levered through the slot to turn the notched wheel of the adjuster, until the hub starts to drag when rotated by hand. Repeat for the other side. Note the ratchet mechanism on the adjuster will only let it turn one way.

You'll need to take the wheel bearings off. the rotors are bolted to the hub and the bolts are located in the back of the hub thus having to remove the wheel bearings and removed the hub/rotor assy.

Rear brake pads on 1996 nissan 300zx

It should just be the caliper mounting bolts that bolt the caliper to the hub assembly. If I remember correctly, they're 17mm. There are two of them, and if you feel the caliper, and run your hand down behind the back side of it, you should find one bolt near the top of the caliper body on the hub, and one down below. Once they're removed, the caliper will come off (you may have to wedge a large screwdriver between the top of the caliper and the rotor and lever it off, but it'll come off).
