Remove the two bolts on either side of the brake hose with the rubber boots. Do not remove the four bolts where the axle ties in. The two bolts to be removed require a 10mm socket/wrench. Loosen the pads from the caliperRotor RemovalIn order to take the rotors off (replace with new or have them machined), it is best to loosen the emergency brake shoes. To do this, behind the rotors, in the back there is a rubber plug, remove that and you can use a screw driver to engage the teeth of the adjusting screw, turn it clockwise to loosen, usually 10-20 teeth. Usually this means turn it downward. After this, it may still be difficult to get the rotors off without tapping them. Use a rubber mallet and hit them from behind. Before really whacking the rotor, make sure you have loosened the adjusting screw enough. It may take heavy swings of the rubber hammer to do this. It will eventually break loose. Parking BrakeYou might want to check the parking brake while you are here.
Re-adjust the emergency brake by turning the opposite direction from loosening.
Refill the brake master cylinder
Thats a very difficult task so I would advise you to let a certified technician do the job because it is kind of complicated and can cause damage if not fitted correctly.

How hard and how do you replace the rear disc brakes on a 2003 Ford explorer? I have replaced a lot of brakes from 60s and 70s to the newest replacements of 91 Ford explorers and 91 Ford f-250s front rotors.
The most common cause of this problem is warped brake rotors. Get it replaced soon. Whenever you replace rotors, you should replace the pads. The old pads will have conformed to the shape of the rotors, so braking efficiency and life will be down if you use them with the new rotors.

Warped brake rotors........
This will greatly depend on what kind of brakes you have and which parts you are trying to replace. Do you have disc or drum brakes? If you have disc brakes, do you want to replace the calipers, pads, or rotors? If you have drum brakes, do you want to replace the drum, or the shoes?

unless you are familiar with braking systems, and cars, don't, if you are the haynes manual has pictures and full take through
no. if you want to upgrade your brakes from a different car then use the Eclipse GSX brakes, or a 3000GT brakes. but you have to replace both the rotors and the calipers.
What should it cost to replace rear brakes, drums and rotors, '96 Volvo 850 GLT.
They need replaced when they wear out.
There is no need to spend the money if it doesn't need done. Typically your rotors last longer than your brakes do anyway, so you should be fine for a while.
