I have 2 98 Explorers and have had to change the parking brake pads in both (they look like and go tegether like the old drum brakes). The first one I did at the same time I changed the rear axel seals so the shoes were a piece of cake (just like changing drum brake shoes) the other explorer I worked around the axel and that was a real pain. Ford sells the brakes and the plate and all the hardware already assembled all you have to do is remove the axel and the cable. I would do it that way if I have to do it again. It may sounds like alot of work but it was easier in the long run. plus the hardware on both was rusted so I replaced it also.
Easy answer. Remove the tire, pads, calipers, and rotor. There is a screw to adjust the e-brake or parking brake.
My Explorer uses small parking brake shoes inside the back of the back rotor
# Release the parking brake # Remove the cowl trim panel from the left side of the drivers compartment for access to the parking brake pedal # Pull back on the parking brake cable toward the control assembly (parking brake) and insert a 5/32 inch drill bit into the control actuator to lock the assembly into position # Its actually easier to pull the parking brake cable from under the vehicle but you will need an assistant to help you do this way. # Loosen the rear wheel lug nuts and raise and support the truck # Remove the brake calipers and the brake discs # Detach the parking brake cable from the actuator arm # Clean the parking brake assembly with brake cleaner # Remove the brake shoe retracting spring # Remove the adjusting screw spring and remove the adjusting screw # Remove the hold down springs from the shoes # Remove the parking brake shoes from the actuator
I dont think you will have to release the park brake cable... simply unbolt the caliper and the caliper bracket if neccesary, and leave the cable attached
Disc brakes ( also have rear parking brake shoes )

No , disk brakes front and rear ( the back disk brake rotors have small parking brake shoes inside of a drum portion )
If you changed the rear brake pads and your parking brake doesent hold your car check your parking brake shoes if they have any padding left these parking brake shoes are under rotor it looks like a horse shoe their hard to get out but pull em out also theirs two little things at the point of these shoes carefull thyll fly out thats normal dont lose them youll have to put them back with new parking brake shoes
check the parking brake cables, any applied tension, and condition of the brake shoes
Hi, First you remove the wheels, the calipers and rotors. Then you are gonna see the shoes behind the hub (the part where the wheel is bolt on). It is quite difficult to replace if you don't have much mechanic skills and tools.
On a 2008 Ford Explorer : ( disc brakes , front and rear ) Also , on the inside of the rear rotors is a small set of parking brake shoes
there are brake shoes in the discs too . just remove the discs and you will see them. they are applied by a cable.
Disc brakes , front and rear ( there are also a small set of brake shoes in the backside of the rear rotors that are used for the parking / emergency brake )
Remove the rear tire and wheels. Remove the emergency brake shoe spring. The brake shoe will come off. Reverse the process to install the new brake shoe.
Remove the tire and wheel from your Mitsubishi. Remove the brake spring and the brake caliper. The brake shoes will come off. Reverse the process to install your new brake shoes.
They just pull off but parking brake must be released & you may have to tap it. Shoes tend to fit pretty tightly in there.
I'm assuming your 1996 Sport is like my 1995 Explorer XLT and has disc brakes front and rear that take brake pads . On the inside of the rear brake rotors is a small set of emergency / parking brake shoes . I know this because I had an emergency brake shoe stick on and was causing a vibration and the wheel to get hot so I had the e-brake shoes changed on both sides and everything re-lubricated etc.

Remove wheels Remove drums (Make sure parking brake is released Loosen and remove brake lines Remove mounting bolts Slide wheel cylinder out (may have to separate brake shoes slightly) Re-install new cylinders and Bleed new cylinders
If the parking brake doesn't hold my guess is the parking brake shoes are shot. Also inspect the parking brake cables, they may be stuck and in need of replacement. The parking brake is designed to hold the vehicle in a parked position and not to be used as an emergency brake to stop a vehicle.
on my 91 when i put new shoes on i adjusted the shoes out with adjuster until shoes touched drums and that also took care of my parking brake problem --- you may need rear brakes ???
