What do you think about this video?

Antonio Girley: Man This was on Point !! Thank You Sir ! Can I Just Use a Regular Socket wrench Cause i Don have a Torque Wrench ?? 

justin dickey: thanks for the help...went pretty easy after watching your video

Scott Kenneth: Thanks man!!!

David Bruce: This guy is the coolest dude on the web! I absolutely love his videos, and I hope he's making a good living with his auto parts biz. Truly a good guy...

Michael Moore: Thanks for the help man :)

Galen Linder: Was Ford using metric bolts in 1998?

1A Auto Parts: @markgildersleeve Thanks for the post, yeah I've even got a few mechanics that use my videos to cut down the time it takes them to do a job. I am happy to help anyone save time, and saving time saves money!

1A Auto Parts: We always recommend torquing them to the correct specs., if they're tightened down pretty good, you should be okay.

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

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?

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..

J Dub: thanks...cause I have a deep circle within my rotor and wanted to see how it was changed instead of payin someone

William Harding: Nice Goat!!!

1A Auto Parts: 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.

1A Auto Parts: 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

1A Auto Parts: 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.

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.

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 :)

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 ?

Monstore4: Would it be the same for a 04 explorer 4x4

fiddlerpin: so it doesn't matter which way the pads go. How about where the wear indicator hits the rotor?

1A Auto Parts: 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.

1A Auto Parts: Thanks for watching. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: @redneck500 They should be fine right out of the box for you to use on your vehicle.

1A Auto Parts: @labarronnieva 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.

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.

1A Auto Parts: Thank you for your order. Have a great day 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: 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.

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.

1A Auto Parts: @displayfireworks1 It will be similar for the front brakes.

caddman68: thank you thank you grt information makes job ez

Chinga Tumadre: @1aauto drum brakes video?

PrivateTech35: are the rotors the same way for a 2003 Ford F150 XLT 4X4 5.4

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.

Matthew Daytona: Big big help thank you guys so much.

redneck500: Hi, when you buy new roters, i heard they should be turned to make sure they are smooth. True?

0scarsky: aaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! you got cut!!! hahaha I knew I'll see it sooner or later on your videos... I feel your pain!!! Have a request, I would really like to see this video again BUT with on a vehicle with the ABS system (I imagine it would be more parts), also I would like to know why does the caliper has to be held high.... I've attempted to do this myself before but I was missing so many missing steps! Thank you very much, ABSOLUTELY helpful!!!! Thank you!

few52: i have a 02 ford explorer had a whirling noise in front left side, replaced wheel hub but noise still there auto part's store's think i have a money tree. please help i dont think it's a cv joint there's no clicking noise.

1A Auto Parts: @fiddlerpin The pads will only fit on one way. You shouldn't have to adjust the wear indicator tabs.

1A Auto Parts: 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

1A Auto Parts: You should replace them both together, so that the old pads do not make any gouges in the old rotors.

TheExceptionL: Thank you! This video Helped out A LOT!!! You guys are the BEST.

1A Auto Parts: @branjf850 If it's a 2WD Ford Explorer it may be different. We currently do not have an auto repair video for this particular application.

Luis Angel Barron: Thank you so much, I really appreciate your help

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

Anthony Barreto-Neto: Do you have video here or your web page for replacing Calipers as well as rotors/pads for 98 Explorer? Must be AWD, cuz I don't have to turn anything on wheel and works in snow! Thanks a lot.

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows you how to replace the calipers. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: @few52 You may want to check the Axles to see if there's any play in them.

Terince Warren: Can you do a video like this for a 01 Pontiac grand am???? Need to change my calipers

1A Auto Parts: @labarronnieva It the do not collapse all of the way they could be siezed in the caliper.

Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
