SOURCE: how do I replace brake pads on 2003 ford focus?

if you have rear disc brakes all you have to do is take the two bolts off and lift the caliper off and pull the pads out but now if you have drums there is a rubber boot behind the whole drum assembly take it out use a screw driver or a brake tool to back off the tension of the shoes

SOURCE: ADJUST BA FALCON HANDBRAKE

hi from uk for your info the rear brakes assy's are auto adjust whether they are disc or drum brakes so h pe the garage are not adjusting the h/brake cable each time ? if so then the auto adjust will not operate due to cable holding the auto adjust mechanism and so the as brakes wear the auto adjust that takes up wear does'nt ? but you are pulling h/brake hard on to apply park ? and actually streching cable you should release cable then pump footbrake and provided?? theauto adjust and lever are not seized brakes will adjust and also will/should improve footbrake ie less travel and more positive then you can reset cable as per h/book hope this helps and is easy diy especially if you follow haynes or other manual ?

SOURCE: seized handbrake

you'll have to jack the car up and take the wheel off, then take the assembly apart and push the pistons in the calipers back in then put it all back together and pump the brakes until they go either hard or you'll need to bleed them again to release any air from the system

You see ford charge 8 hours labour for replacing the shaft!
A job that at most should take 3 hours. I would hunt around and get some quotes from a Radiator Repair shop or Air con specialist rather then Ford dealerships.

SOURCE: How to Remove the Rear Bumper - BA Fairmont/Falcon

Firstly, you need to remove the rear splash shields from within the rear wheel arches and also the tail lights. Then remove the scrivets from the lover edge of the bar. Next remove the scuff plate at the boot opening and fold the carpet back. There are four nuts which hold the bar on, undo these and then lift the sides of the bar up and pull out. The bar has large clips on the side which hold it in place.

How do i replace my hand brake cable on my ford falcon XH ute


wait a bit ....is it rear disc or rear drums on that ute

will assume its under dash hand brake pull lever tyoe

the disc setup may have single cables for each rear
rear disk brake cable is approx $ 150

if your XH it is close to the XE and XF set up drums
a complete one line loop cable outer and inner
with plastic grommets along the back chassis rail ( they break )
so the one inner cable works both rear handbrake shoes


hand brake cable is a shorty

undo the adjustment thread
just below the hand brake cable point up somewhere above the gearbox
(drums )
after new cable fitted
drums are adjusted with the old school way with the handbrake adjuster tool
handbrake cable adjusted

then the handbrake handle when pulled out to hold needs14 plus clicks
comes out a long way for some weird reason
on drums
if cable adjustment is done wrong onrear drums the handbrake cable will come loose in the drum as you drive along

Drive axle removale


remove disc and brake calliper assembly. There should be 4 bolts at the end of the axle housing flange These hold a retaining washer in place . Remove these then pull the axle flange out of the housing. In some instances the bearing and seal may be stuck and you may have to use a slide hammer or some other method to get the axle to come out.. Note ensure the car is securely placed on jack stands as the removal process may work the car off a jack and injury will occur

Ajusting hanbrake ford au111 2002 falcon


Hi Shannon, There is an ajustment nut at the base of the hand brake it's self, you pull the cover strait off the end of the handle and it is a 10mm nut on a treaded piece of metal rod/cable. If it's as tight as it can get you may need new brake boots for you handbrake. Just checked ebay and they are $66 plus postage for a set :)

Remember righty tighty lefty loosie :p
hope this helps :)

I have a 2004 Falcon BA XR6, and the Handbrake is completly non usuable, is this a retensioning issue? if so how do I do it? Kind regards jason


The problem is most likely with your rear brakes if you have drums witch you most likely do have on this vehicle . Its a center consoled thing but it is vary ajustable however cables get stuck and things bind all kinds of things can happen . The place to start is to remove the rear brake drums then pull the brake handle not all the way just enought to see if it moves the shoes . Then you will know if the cables are free and moveing . The most likly cause is the rear shoes need to be replaced You need to check it out Good luck
