More information on the rear end and make and model of the vehicle ( e350 is rather general and can range through a multitude of manufacturers )
who makes the rear a diff as some the drums come off the hub and with others the axle comes out then the axle nut is removed and then the drum and hub come off

you may be able to identify which you have by removing the wheels and if there are locking tapered screws in the drum holding it to the hub

Without contaminating everything, try some penetrating oil sprayed carefully on the pins and let it set overnight and then some light tapping with a small hammer to break any rust bond.

SOURCE: how to replace rear brake pads on 2005 jeep liberty

put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from

Yes they will be. Especially if you have the parking brake applied. The piston must be pressed back into the caliper cylinder completely to install the new pads. So you need a tool to do this. Ask at the autoparts store where you purchased the pads for the correct tool for you vehicle. You need to pry them back a little to slip the pads past the unworn ridge on the rotor, then use the tool to press the piston back into the cylinder all the way.

I was going to replace a wheel brake cylinder on my rear axel. I thought I could just pull off the hub to get to the brake assembly but there is a bolted on cap and screwed on plate on the end of the...


Some cars/trucks have the hub mounted with screws/bolts. You will have to remove them to get the hub off. You may need a rubber mallet to beat on the hub a little to get it to come off past the groove the brake pads may have made in the hub. After you get the hub off, take a picture of the brake components so you will know where everything goes once you start removing parts. Once you remove the springs, stuff will shift around and fall out on you so be careful and try to notice where everything goes as it is removed. If you run into problems during reassembly, you can always remove the hub on the other side to get pointers on where everything should go. Good luck.

Help-Ford E-350 Brake problem


First, if the recall applies to your van, it can be done anytime. There is no time limit on recalls. Call your dealer with your 17 Digit VIN number and they can check. Please rate as solved if this is what you need. thanks.

Here is the recall:

Safety Recall 92S44 - Certain 1988-1991 F250/350 Trucks for Loss of Front Brake Effectiveness
Affected Vehicles
Certain 1988-1991 F250/350 trucks over 8500 lb GVW with 7.5L EFI or 7.3L diesel (4x2 and 4x4) and 5.8L EFI (4x4 only). Trucks under 8500 lb GVW. 5.8L EFI (4x2) and F-Super Duty light trucks are not involved in this recall. Specific vehicle information is as follows:

AFFECTED VEHICLES ASSEMBLY PLANT PRODUCTION DATES F250/350 Norfolk Job#1 1988 to 4/18/91 Kansas City Job#1 1988 to 4/25/91 Ont. Truck Job#1 1988 to 5/1/91 Mich. Truck Job#1 1988 to 5/11/91 Twin Cities Job#1 1988 to 5/29/91
Reasons For Recall
In certain extremely severe driving conditions, the vehicle may experience a loss of front brake effectiveness due to overheating of brake fluid. These vehicles have a split brake system and the rear brakes remain operational. This condition has been reported primarily in vehicles operated in mountainous regions, and on vehicles that have been in service for a minimum of one to two years and where the brake fluid has absorbed moisture from the air, lowering its boiling point. It usually involves heavily loaded vehicles driving on long, steep grades, or when towing at, or near, the Maximum Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) for towing. Warm weather also appears to contribute to this condition. To correct this condition, dealers will install insulators in the front brake caliper pistons on all the affected trucks. 7.5L EFI engine equipped trucks will also have insulation installed on selected portions of the front brake lines.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PART NUMBER DESCRIPTION CLASS DEALER PRICE F2TZ-2C361-A Kit-Brake Caliper Piston Insulator (All Except 7.5L Engines) BG F2TZ-2C361-B Kit-Brake Tube Insulator Jacket (Required Only For Vehicles Equipped With 7.5L EFI Engines) Kit Also Includes Brake Caliper Piston Insulators

Brake Caliper Piston Insulator Kit
Installation Instructions
  1. Remove the front wheel and tire assemblies.
  2. Remove the brake calipers from the rotors. Refer to the appropriate shop manual for the procedures.
  3. Remove the inner and outer brake linings.
  4. Inspect the brake caliper pistons. If the pistons are phenolic, (brown in color) no modifications are required. Reassemble the calipers as described in the shop manual. If the truck is equipped with a 7.5L EFI engine, install the brake tube insulator kit. If the truck is not equipped with an 7.5L EFI engine, install the wheels and tires and release the truck.
    If the pistons are aluminum, continue as described below.
  5. Remove the steel retainer and Nomex thermal washers from the kit.
  6. Place a steel retainer on a bench with the tabs facing up. Refer to Figure 1.
  7. Place a Nomex thermal washer over the tabs so that it rests on the barb of each tab. Then, carefully press it over the barb of one of the tabs. Repeat the procedure for each of the remaining tabs.

    • NOTE:
      Do not bend the tabs. The inner edge of the washer may crease slightly as it passes over the barb. This is permissible provided that the crease can be smoothed out once the washer is in place. The washer must be installed without tearing.

  8. Push the washer down onto the back face of the retainer. Be sure it is seated uniformly on the retainer. Once installed, do not use an adhesive or other aid to hold it in place. This is neither necessary nor permissible.
  9. Snap an assembled insulator into the inside diameter of each caliper piston. Be sure the assembly is firmly seated on the rim of the piston. See Figure 2.
  10. Install the inner and outer brake linings.
  11. Clean the caliper slide surfaces on the caliper and the spindle with a wire brush and lubricate with Disc Brake Caliper Slide Grease, D7AZ-19590-A (ESA-M1C172-A) or equivalent.
  12. Reinstall the brake calipers. Refer to the appropriate shop manual for the procedures.
  13. Install the wheel and tire assemblies.

Rear Axel Seal


Wheel, brakes etc that are in way of pulling axle out have to come off. Drain rear end fluid, remove rear housing cover, remove bolt that holds pin in differential, remove differential pin, push in slightly on axle to remove "U" clip that holds shaft in, then slide shaft out. replace seal. Reverse procedure for re-install & fill with gear lube. If any questions, get back to us.
