SOURCE: need to replace the rear rotors on the ford f150 2005 4x4

yes they should come off unless they are stuck. this is where the problem arises. if the rotors are stuck. what you can do is slam the whole piece where the rotor is on a block of wood so that it won't be damaged. but the rotor would not be touching the wood. let the weight of the rotor force itself off it's holder.

as it comes off, you could notice the rust that have caused it to stuck.
clean it thoroughly before assembling back.

i hope i was able to help,

SOURCE: How do I remove rear brake rotors on a 2004 Ford

Remove the brake caliper bolts{2} and caliper.
soak the rotor around the hub with penetrant oil and knock off with large hammer, careful not to hit the wheel studs. These rotors corrode and rust on really bad. If you can loosen the self adjuster behind the backing plate for the parking brake shoes, this will help as they hang up on them too.

SOURCE: How to remove disc brake rotor on a 1992 Ford Explorer 4-wheel drive

It should just pull off once you have taken the caliper off. It may be seized in place, if thats the case try spraying the back of it with some sort of penetrating oil, let it sit for a bit. THen put some heat on it if you have torches, or beat it with a hammer. Sounds kind of crude...but it works

I have a 2004 Ford expedition I need to know how


The problem with these units is the Emergency brakes are inside of the rear rotors. This causes problems in several ways. The E. brake material can jam inside the rotor/drum and the E. brake needs to be fully retracted to give clearance to remove the rotor. Sometimes the rotor rusts to the axle hub.

Check the link behind the rotor. There are different styles and this pivot may need to be hit with something to drive it closed. Just because the brake cable is retracted does not mean the pivot is fully retracted.

For rust, sometimes it is necessary to put the trans in neutral and turn the axles at the same time you squirt oil in behind the wheel studs. By rotating the axle shaft and tapping the rotor, you force oil into the back surface of the rotor. A rotor puller may be necessary.

Rear Wheel Bearing Repair; 2005 pontiac aztek


Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

2005 ford expedition faulty breaks


Try buying top quality rotors, Raybestas, Wagner, or Bendix. Do not buy second line rotors. Buy the top line, OE quality pads. Make sure that when the rotors are installed that you clean out behind where the rotor mounts and the studs. All rust, dirt and debris needs to be removed. When you mount the wheels back on the vehicle, they need to be torched back to ford specifications, follow the specs to the letter. These trucks are VERY picky when it comes to brakes and skipping just one of the steps above will lead to trouble.
