You do not need to disengage the emergency brake to remove the rotors.
Go to the local Auto store and get yourself an emergency brake spring remover. You will use this to take the spring off and use it to put it back on afterwards. I've used pliers before but its a real pain. The tool will make it 10 times easier. I think this is what you meant.
First remove the right and left tires, and then proceed to remove the rotors. After you have replaced the rotors put them back on.
How do you remove the rotors on a 1992 ford aerostar?"
Remove wheels Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor Disengage parking brake to remove rear rotors Rotor should slide off hub (if peel off type) Use a rubber mallet if any corrosion is binding rotor If not bearings have to be removed (write back for procedure)
If the truck has disc brakes on the rear then the park brake shoes are located inside the rear rotors. You have to remove the brake calipers, pads and rotors to access them
With the wheel off, remove the calipers, then the rotors just come off.
yes you do have to.The answer is no you don't have to disconnect the emergency brake cable, just remove the whole calliper and the rotor will come off no problem, its a good idea to change the emergency brake shoes if needed and lube the linkages, that's is all.
Remove wheels Remove 2 caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotors Rotors should slide off hub
pull off the front wheels. remove the calipers. remove the two screws that hold on the rotors. replace the rotors and reverse the procedure.
You can't remove the rotors because the emergency brake is tight on the inside of the rotors. Make sure it's not engaged when you are working on the rear brakes. Block the front tires for saftey. Then you have to remove the rear calipers from the mounting brackets, there are two bolts that hold the calipers on. Make sure you hang the calipers securily with some wire so you don't damage the rubber brake line hose. Then you need to adjust the emergency parking brake shoes in order to remove the rotors. Theres a rubber plug on the backside of the rear hubs, once you look at the back of the hub you'll see the plug. It's on the top. Once you take out the plug, you need to use a screw driver to turn the star spindel. You need to turn the star spindel counter-clockwise in order to give yourself enough clearance to remove the rotors. The beauty of this design is that ford incorporated a drum and caliper system together, but it's difficult to take off the rotors if the emergency brake shoes are to tight. The inside of the rotors acts as the drums for the emergency brake system. I've done this and it's not that hard, but, I did have to replace the emergency brake shoes because they were worn out and the shoes fell off the metal backing plates when I finally got the rotors to come off. They only glued these shoes onto the backing plates, they don't rivet them so take your time getting the rotors off or you can damage the emergency brake shoes, but if you do they are cheap at napa. My service guide says to install the new rotors, use a couple of lug nuts to hold it on, then adjust the star spindal for the emergency brake all the way clockwise until you can't turn it anymore, then you must back it off 8 clicks counter-clockwise. Make sure the emergency brake is not engaged when you are doing this, the 8 clicks backwards compensates for when you do engage the parking brake because the shoes expands outwards. This adjustment sets the emergency brakes so they work properly. Once the emergency brake is properly set you can't remove the rear rotors, which is what your initial problem is. Then install the rubber plug back in the hole, put on the new pads and calipers and you're good to go.
