How to Replace a Caliper in a Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer is a large vehicle that some drivers may handle roughly. Parts like brake calipers may inevitably need replacing. Have a trained expert work on your Explorer for such maintenance, or consult with one before undertaking it yourself.

Instructions

    1

    Raise and support the vehicle on the jack stand on the end you need. Loosen the lug nuts and remove the wheel.

    2

    Remove the caliper slide pin bolts. Lift the caliper off of the anchor plate. Suspend the caliper with wire or position it on a frame member. Don't let it hang by the brake hose.

    3

    Disconnect the brake hose from the caliper and plug the hose. Remove the caliper from the rotor.

    4

    Place the caliper over the brake pads and align the slide pin mounting holes. Install the slide pin bolts, tightening them to 24 foot pounds.

    5

    Connect the brake hose to the caliper. Use new washers on the bolt and tighten it to 26 foot pounds.

    6

    Reinstall the wheel and tighten the lug nuts to 100 foot pounds. Lower the vehicle.
