How do I install a front brake disc on my Ford Ranger?


Answer by  icanoutfishyou (1148)

Jack the vehicle up and secure it with a jack stand. Remove the wheel, then remove the brake caliper. Once the caliper is removed, your brake discs will easily slide out, and replace the pair. Also, it would be wise to get a new rotor or at least have it turned, for longevity of repair.

You need to remove the wheel and brake caliper first. Then simply remove the grease cap on the center of the rotor along with the nut and cotter pin.

Securely jack the truck up and remove the wheel. Loosen and remove the brake caliper and hang it off to the side with some wire or rope. If it is 4WD then you might need to remove the axle nut. Then remove the rotor. Slide it off but be careful of the studs and their treads.
