I just replaced the rear brakes on our 02 explorer. If you have 4 wheel disc than the rear "hubs" are rotor hubs and once you remove the callipers you may have to back off on the emergency brake pads by turning the self adjuster. By the way you shouldn't have the e-brake on at all or you can not remove the rear rotor-hubs.

Haynes Repair Manual #36025, Ford Explorer 2002-2006, Chapter 10, "Hub and bearing assembly (rear) replacement": Due to the special tools and expertise required to press the hub and bearing from the rear knuckle, this job should be left to a professional mechanic. However, the knuckle may be removed and taken to an automotive machine shop or other qualified repair facility equipped with the necessary tools.

To remove the rear rotors on a 2002 Oldsmobile, a wheel puller will be necessary. A wheel puller has a foot that attaches to the hub, with feet that attach to the rotor. The more the wheel puller is turned, the more it pushes on the hub and loosens the rotor.

The rear wheel has a different hub; the gears attach to it. Alternatively the rear hub has gears or a brake or a dynamo built into it. The front hub will sometimes have a dynamo built into it, other than that it is just a plain hub.

no , if you remove the rear hub there will be four 13 mm bolts holding the retaining plate in place , remove these bolts and the rear axle will slide out , if the rear brakes will not release fully you can remove the nuts from the rear and pull hub and all at one go though be very careful if this manner is attemted

The 2000 Ford Explorer front hub nut has a torque specification of 140 pounds of pressure. The hub should not be over tighten. Over tightening can ruin the seal.

Remove the rear wheel. Remove the brake drum - may require a rap with a hammer. Remove grease cap from hub by tapping with hammer and flat screwdriver. Remove the hub nut (1 3/16" or 1 1/4") Hub assembly should slide off the axle. Hub cost $101 plus tax in Canada, US price was $57 on line. Reassemble with new hub assembly. Hub nut torque = 160 ft lbs

The rear axle hub nut should be torqued to 260Nm or 192 lb/ft - this applies also to the front axle hub nut.

It comes as a bearing and hub assembly. Remove the rear wheel. Remove the rear brake drum - may require a rap with a hammer to free up. Remove the hub nut (1 3/16" or 1 1/4") Hub assembly should slide off the axle. Everything went well and it only took me about 30 minutes.

The rear drums come off with the rear wheel hub. You Jack up the car, remove the wheel.Remove the cap in the center of the hub. Take the cotter pin out, unscrew the wheel bearing retainer nut. Pull drum and hub off as an assembly.The rear drums come off with the rear wheel hub. You Jack up the car, remove the wheel.Remove the cap in the center of the hub.

The rear wheel bearings in a 2003 Buick Rendezvous are integrated with the hub, therefore they are only available/replaceable as an entire hub assembly. The rear hub assembly costs around $200/each, depending on the specifics of the vehicle (2WD or 4WD).

if its the hub it self then its a axle change.
