Best Answer

first you remove the wheel and tire, then remove the caliper and pads, remove the center bearing cap, remove the cotter pin (remember to save it for reuse so don't destroy it) then remove the jam nut, loosen and remove the nut under that and pull the rotor straight out. Reassembly is the exact reverse of the disasembly instructions. Hope that helps.

AnswerThe following procedure is for a 2000 F-150 right out of the factory service manual.

Caliper

Removal

1. Raise and support the vehicle; for additional information, refer to �Section 100-02�.

2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly; for additional information, refer to �Section 204-04�.

3. WARNING: Asbestos fiber dust may be present on brake and clutch assemblies and is hazardous to health if inhaled.

Brake and clutch assemblies should be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner recommended for use with asbestos fibers such as a brake/clutch/service vacuum. The bag must be labeled per OSHA instructions, sealed, and the trash hauler notified as to the bag's contents.

If a vacuum suitable for asbestos is not available, cleaning should be done wet. If dust generation is still possible, technicians should wear government-approved toxic dust purifying respirators.

Occupational health and safety act (OSHA) requires areas where asbestos dust generation is possible to be isolated and posted with warning signs. Only technicians performing brake or clutch repair should be present in the area.

WARNING: Brake fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. If brake fluid contacts eyes, flush eyes with running water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. If taken internally, drink water and induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.

CAUTION: Brake fluid is harmful to painted and plastic surfaces. If brake fluid is spilled onto a painted or plastic surface, immediately wash it with water.

Sorry it won't let me copy and paste pictures

You don't need to disconnect the brake line from calliper, just disconnect whole calliper assembly from wheel, and with coat hunger or other wire hung the calliper from coil spring, out of the way, then proceed with removing rotor.
