How do I remove a front rotor on my Ford F-150?

You will need to remove the wheel and then the caliper using a socket set. Once off you will need to release the clips and remove the rotor.

Securely jack the truck up and remove the wheels. Then unbolt the caliper from the rotor and secure it off to the side with wire or rope so there is no weight on the brake lines. Then remove any axle nuts or pins if it is a 4wd. Then remove the rotor and install the new one.

Remove the tire, On the back of the rotor you will find 2 screws "19mm" on one the top and on the bottom. Unscrew those, and unscrew break line.

First jack it up and remove the wheel. Remove the retaining clips, compress the piston, and remove the old pads. Remove the caliper, then the rotor. If it hasn't been changed in a while, you may need to pry it off.
