1aauto: You should be able to apply some of the basics steps that are shown in the video to the rear.1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Saulo Sanchez: the rear side is the similar process ? I love the video.
Matthew Daytona: Big big help thank you guys so much.
1aauto: It should be a very similar process. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Monstore4: Would it be the same for a 04 explorer 4x4
1aauto: They should compress in as shown in this video. We carry some great brake rotor and pad kits on our website for all kinds of vehicles. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
elbinford08: I'll trade you my sport trac for that GTO in the background! haha
Noculartech: Very useful and informative video.
I just did the rotor replacement and I can tell you that you definitely need the C clamp.
Also I had to go out and buy a breaker bar for the 15 mm bolt. I have no pneumatic tools so it was necessary. Very easy if you have the right tools. Thanks for posting.
glenrkat: Thanks for this guys. Was easier than buying a Chilton's or Haynes manual to get the right torque specs and stuff. Had a brake job at Precision Tune before I left Florida and they forgot to put a mounting bolt back on my brakes. You guys saved my truck :)
1aauto: HI Victor, If the new pads are squeaking a little, you can put some anti-squeak lubricant on the outside of the brake pads. You can buy it at your local auto parts store.
1aauto: It should be a similar process. There may be a few things that could be different such as different size tools that may be needed.
Victor Camarillo: i use this video to change a brake pads in a ford explorer 09 ill do it by my self when i dont use the brake make some noise how can i fix that ?
emanuelarzola: @1aauto. Is it the same brake and rotor replacement for a 94 4x4 ford explorer? Thanks
1aauto: Thank you for your order. Have a great day 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Barnekkid: I just bought a Honda tail light lens from 1aauto. The part fit perfectly and the shipping was free and super fast. 1aauto is an excellent parts resource and I'll continue to see them for automotive needs.
1aauto: We always recommend torquing them to the correct specs., if they're tightened down pretty good, you should be okay.
209Stretch: Question, how important is it to use a torque wrench? I did my fronts on my silverado and everything came out good except I did not use a torque wrench.
1aauto: If you can't get the caliper back over the brake rotor you may have to compress the caliper in some more with a c-clamp. This will give you the extra clearance so that you can get the brakes back on.
Dante Harison: Fustrated I been doing my brakes for 5 hrs I got everything off but you dont show putting the caliper back on. I got the new pads on but cant get. The caliper back on is there somwthing small im not doing
1aauto: Thanks for watching. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
caddman68: thank you thank you grt information makes job ez
1aauto: We currently do not have an auto repair video on this particular vehicle. The basic procedures should be fairly similar. We do carry the Haynes manuals on our website that would show you how to change them on your truck. Here's a link to them on our website. 1aauto.com/1A/repairmanual/Ford/F150-Truck/1AMNL00004/471626/2003?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=youtube&utm_campaign=1ATony
PrivateTech35: are the rotors the same way for a 2003 Ford F150 XLT 4X4 5.4
1aauto: You should replace them both together, so that the old pads do not make any gouges in the old rotors.
Kasy Delrio: question, i have to have 2replace, the rotors/pads on a 1996 explorer, can i replace the pads 1st then replace da roter in a few week?
1aauto: We currently do not have a video that shows you how to replace just the calipers in a 2001 Pontiac Grand AM. We'll keep this in mind if we end up making this repair in the future.
Terince Warren: Can you do a video like this for a 01 Pontiac grand am???? Need to change my calipers
1aauto: Not usually. If the pedal is hard or really soft, then you may need to bleed them to get any air pockets out of the system.
midgety1: do you have to bleed the brakes after you change the pads?
1aauto: They should be fine right out of the box for you to use on your vehicle.
redneck500: Hi, when you buy new roters, i heard they should be turned to make sure they are smooth. True?
1aauto: If it's a 2WD Ford Explorer it may be different. We currently do not have an auto repair video for this particular application.
branjf850: I have a 2000 ford explorer and it also has the center cap with pin and bolt to get the rotor off. i guess this means i need different rotors than the ones you use in the video???? Please help.
1aauto: The pads will only fit on one way. You shouldn't have to adjust the wear indicator tabs.
fiddlerpin: so it doesn't matter which way the pads go. How about where the wear indicator hits the rotor?
Luis Angel Barron: Thank you so much, I really appreciate your help
1aauto: It may not work as well as it should if this is the case. If you can't get it to collapse all of the way with your clamp, you could also try to crack the bleeder while you try to collapse the caliper to see if that helps. If it does, then make sure you bleed the brakes one last time once everything is back together. Hope this helps you out.
Luis Angel Barron: Hi, thanks for the answer, does that mean the caliper won't work any more? I'm sorry for the ignorance
1aauto: It the do not collapse all of the way they could be siezed in the caliper.
Luis Angel Barron: Hi thanks for the video, just a problem, I can't get the caliper's pistons back inside, any suggestion? Thanks
J Dub: thanks...cause I have a deep circle within my rotor and wanted to see how it was changed instead of payin someone
1aauto: Thank you for checking out our auto repair channel on YouTube. We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows this paticular repair on a Ford Ranger truck.
MustangGTR2: drum brakes video?
ogbobbye: 1aauto videos are the best on here I have saved 1000's of dollars doing repairs myself with the help of these videos and also they have shown me when a repair is more then I can handle on my own so that I dont waste time trying to do something I'm not equiped for
William Harding: Nice Goat!!!
bry1973: Thanks for this video, with your help I just replaced mine on my '01 Sport Trac and it only took me about 40 mins.
1aauto: I would try bleeding them first with a buddy to see if there's any air trapped in them.
1aauto: The AWD may have a slightly different setup however the basics should be the same as far as how to unbolt things,collapse the piston in the caliper and replace the rotor. Unless you crack the bleeders you shouldn't get air in the brake lines while changing a set of brake pads and rotors.
If you have a hard or really soft pedal then it's may be a good idea to bleed the brakes a few times to see if there's any air in the lines.
Joseph Flores: hey 1A 2 questions, i have an 03 explorer xls AWD does it matter if you have an AWD 4x4 or it's all the same ...thanks.. gonna "try" to do my own tomorrow oh and also what's with gettin air in your brake line is that common when changing pads and rotors ..? thanks again..
2x2is22: My brakes are locking up right after I start driving in my '99 Ford Ranger. After I use and pump them a bit, it goes away. This usually seems to happen after a) my truck's been sitting a while, and b) it's been raining or really humid. Could my calipers be shot?
