you unscrew the tire and take it off then there is a center nut unscrew that and the roder sould slide right off I hope that you do not follow those directions. I would hate to see you go thru a red light because of no brakes, and hit someone. A brake job should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing. If you have to ask how to do it, then I do suggest that you have someone else who knows how to do the job, and watch, and learn. Or if not, then a garage, and then watch. You will need certain tools to do this job. You do not unscrew the tire, you take off the lug nuts, and the center nut, does not just unscrew, you need an impact for that, and besides you do not have to touch that nut. The rotor comes off when you remove the tire and the caliper.

you will have to disassemble the rear lens by entering the trunk. If the question really is for a 1998 Ford Tempo, then the answer is - you can't because the last Ford Tempo model year is 1994!!

A Ford Tempo will have no brake lights if the bulb has blown or the wires have come loose. Alternatively, the brake sensor in the dash can fail and stop sending power to the lights.

Remove the tire and wheel from your 1988 Ford Ranger pickup truck. Remove the brake pads. When the brake drum is not loose you can tap on it with a hammer or mallet. Once the brake drum is loose it will slide off.
