In a word, NO.
You don't say why you need to know so I'm guessing its something to do with brakes?
If you aren't sure about the hubs are you sufficiently knowledgeable to do the next stage?
Get some good info or help.

Testimonial: "hi I have mk1 focus with drum brakes on the rear and thinking about changing them to disc. but not sure if I have to change the hub aswell"

    Don't try it! Brakes are a careful balance worked out by the manf.

    If there was an accident you would be personally liable for any defect or unauthorised change. If you are using it for the track / off road then OK but the time and trouble is not worth it as the rear brakes only do a small proportion of the braking anyway.

The disc hub usually fitted to the front wheels has two break pads per wheel which press against the sides of the disc using hydraulic pressure to stop the vehicle the pad wear is easy to see when the wheel is removed. The drums hubs are on the rear wheels have break shoes which press on the inner lining of the drum to stop the vehicle and are not visible even with the wheel of till you also take the drum off. They are not the same.

What do I have to do to replace disc break drums


to start with there are no disc brake drums. There are disc rotors and brake drums and the two are as chalk and cheese. Most disc rotors just require the removal of the wheel and ( some have retaining screws for the wheel hub) pull the rotor off the hub. Off course you will have to remove the callipers before removing the disc
Brake drums on the other hand will require the removal of the wheel and loosing off of the brake adjustment. Some again have retaining screws /bolts and may require hitting the axle flange section of the drum to allow the drum to come off the axle studs. require . I strongly recommend that you get a workshop manual relevant for your vehicle before you think about doing it yourself.

I have a focus lx 2000. One of my rear drum brakes,'s bearings went. I got a scrapyard full drum unit, but it doesn't have ABS. Can I take sensor ring out of existing bearing unit and put it


Maybe, but the bearings are also removable. You could just swap out the bearings and continue to use your hub if there is nothing wrong with your hub and drum.

Exacly how to remove rear brake drums ? 2001 Ford Focus SE. I don't want to remove the hub & spindle. I simply want to replace the drums & Brake shoes.


The drum and hub are one assembly on that vehicle so you will need to remove the dust cap in the center of the drum and remove the large axle nut. The drum/hub/bearing assembly will then pull off of the spindle.

If you want to replace the drum you will either have to find one with a bearing already installed, Have your old bearing pressed out of the old drum and pressed into the new drum, or have new bearings pressed into the new drum.

When installing the new drum it is very important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. I can get that spec for you if you need it.

2001 Focus zx3 rear brakes- pads or drums???


If they look like a smaller version of your front brakes where you can see the disc (should be shiny on the side of the disc where the pad touches the rotor) then you have disk brakes.

If it's all black, or all kinda of rusted looking and all you see is a "cap" over everything behind the rim, then it'll be a drum...

95% of the zx3's have drums
only 5% of zx3's had discs. The ones that have disc brakes, also came with traction control as part of the package.

Rear brake disc replacement


are your brake pads squeezing the rotor? are your brakes disc or drum? in order to replace pads on disc brakes you need to unbolt the caliper. If you have drum brakes make sure your car is secured and make sure your parking brake isn't on...
