Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab

Rotors In replacing the front rotors, is it advised I also replace the bearings inside? Or, if not necessary (assuming they're still good), how do I remove the bearing on the inside of the rotor (the side facing the engine)?

I just replaced front brake pads myself. 65K Miles. Rotors were fine. Now that everything is back together the Acadia bounces down the road at any speed. What did I do wrong?


bounces or wiggles ?? as if it wiggles then you've missed a warped rotor by not changing em ,(there can be more wrong with rotors than just physical wear ) this will make your front wheel bearings go bad early if you allow them to wiggle this way BTW if you change rotors its a good idea to at least regrease bearings if not replace em , and allways get new grease seals don't try to reuse em

Changing front rotors


Capri rotor replacement is only done by a mechanically inclined person with tools. The rotors have the front bearings pressed in, so the rotor must be removed from the axle. Bearings must be pressed in, and preload must be adjusted for the new rotor. If you do not understand any of this then find a mechanic. Expect to pay at least $150 per rotor replacement.

An alternative is if you can find a junk yard Capri with decent rotors, then it can be installed onto your vehicle without the need for a mechanic to do bearing replacement. Keep in mind though that the junk yard Capri may have bad bearings...Good luck...Chris

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise


Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

How to remove brake rotors on a 1996 ford explorer


How to replace the rear brake pads on a 1995 through 2001 Ford Explorer The system utilizes a drum-in-hat type rear brake rotor. The integral drum allows the use of a drum-and-shoe type parking brake system. All other components are similar to their front disc brake components Remove the two bolts on either side of the brake hose with the rubber boots. Do not remove the four bolts where the axle ties in. The two bolts to be removed require a 10mm socket/wrench. Loosen the pads from the caliper Rotor Removal In order to take the rotors off (replace with new or have them machined), it is best to loosen the emergency brake shoes. To do this, behind the rotors, in the back there is a rubber plug, remove that and you can use a screw driver to engage the teeth of the adjusting screw, turn it clockwise to loosen, usually 10-20 teeth. Usually this means turn it downward. After this, it may still be difficult to get the rotors off without tapping them. Use a rubber mallet and hit them from behind. Before really whacking the rotor, make sure you have loosened the adjusting screw enough. It may take heavy swings of the rubber hammer to do this. It will eventually break loose. Parking Brake You might want to check the parking brake while you are here. To remove:
  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Remove the outboard return spring.
  • Remove the adjusting screw spring.
  • Remove the rear brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove the brake shoe adjusting screw and nut.
  • Remove the front brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove both parking brake shoes and the inboard return spring.
  • Check the parking brake lever for excessive wear and replace as necessary.
To install:
  • Position the front parking brake shoe to the backing plate and install the hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the rear parking brake shoe with the inboard return spring.
  • Position the brake shoe adjuster screw and nut on the shoes and install the rear shoe hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the brake shoe adjuster spring.
  • Install the outboard return spring.
  • Adjust the parking brake shoes and install the rotor, caliper and wheel.
  • Lower the vehicle and tighten the wheel lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).
ADJUSTMENT
  • Measure the inside of the drum portion of the rear brake rotor
  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Using Brake Adjustment Gauge D81L-1103-A or equivalent, measure the inside diameter of the drum portion of the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Subtract 0.020 in. (0.508mm) from the first measurement, adjust the brake shoes to that size
  • Adjust the parking brake adjuster screw until the outside diameter of the parking brake shoes measures 0.020 in. (0.508mm) less than the drum measurement.
  • Install the rear disc brake rotor.
Reassembly Reassembly is easy. Put new or machined rotors back on by sliding them over the lugs (they should slide on easily.) Loosen bleeder valve (having a catch bottle handy is good). Push calipers in slowly (using a c-clamp or large channel lock pliers), close bleeder valve. Put on pads. Lubricate metal clips with small amount of anti-seize. Re-adjust the emergency brake by turning the opposite direction from loosening. Refill the brake master cylinder

I am getting a pulsing feeling from the front wheels when braking on my 2004 Chrysler Sebring. It feels like one or more of the rotors are warped. How do I replace the front rotors with new ones. Thanks.


If they are not worn beyond tollerance they can be machined on the vehicle.
Also make sure its not tyres or wheel bearings.

remove wheel
remove brake caliper( leave the hose connected)
remove centre cap
remove split pin and lock
unscrew bearing hub nut
rotor should come off
fit new bearing races in new rotor
grease new bearings
fit inside bearing and seal
refit rotor, outer bearing,washer,nut,lock, splitpin and centre cap
(tighten nut until no play in bearing plus 1\8 of a turn)
refit caliper and wheel
bleed and test brakes before driving

Front rotors and pads


Those rotors are bolted from the inside of the wheel bearing hub. You have to remove the caliper and mounting bracket,then remove the wheel bearing outer and slide the hub assembly off.Unbolt the rotor.
Your local library should have a shop manual on it.

How to remove brake rotors

Failed state inspection...front rotors need replaced


Remove the wheels, then on the back side of the rotor will be two bolts holding the caliper on. Remove them, then there will be two more bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket on, remove those, and the bracket. The rotors will slide off. If you have never had the brakes done there will be two metal washers holding the rotor on to the studs, cut them off with a chisel. They are only there to hold the rotors on during assembly line operations. Good Luck

Can not get the rotors off my 97 hyundai tibaron


Hyundai Tiburon 96-01 uses a outer hub system. To replace front rotors. You'll need front bearings as well. The bearing and hub will need to be pressed out of the spindal. Then replacement of bearing will need to be pressed in. From a shop.Or they can use a slide hammer to remove ,but damages the bearing. Best to buy bearing and have cash for an alignment job too.Then replace front rotors. Rotor and hub install is ez after you get bearing pressed.Rear rotor and bearing are bolt on though.
