How to Replace the Front Rotors on a 2001 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Edition

When it comes time to replace the brake rotors on your Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer edition, consider doing it yourself. Labor rates are high in repair shops, and the project is easy enough to complete at home. The brake rotors are important to the proper operation of your braking system. If the surfaces of the brake rotor are not in good condition, your brakes will not be effective. Another thing that can happen is that the brake rotors will warp. This is evident when you apply the brakes, and the SUV begins to shake.



    Place the wheel chocks behind the rear tires of the Ford Expedition. Raise the SUV with the automobile jack. Place a jack stand under the vehicle, and raise it to the frame.


    Remove the lug nuts from the wheel, using the lug wrench. Pull the wheel off the Expedition. Remove the brake caliper and anchor plate, using a socket and ratchet to remove the bolts. Secure the caliper to the strut, using a wire tie. Do not allow the caliper to hang loose, or you will damage the brake line.


    Pull the brake disc off the wheel assembly, and put the new one on. Cut the wire tie, holding the brake caliper, using the pliers, and bolt it into place on the wheel, using the socket and ratchet. Replace the wheel, and tighten the lug nuts with the lug wrench.


    Remove the jack stand from under the SUV, and lower the vehicle to the ground. Repeat the process on the other wheel.
