I bought 2 of the big bottles of brake fluid and rationed out half of each bottle to each corner of the truck. The abutment plates are highly polished, smooth plates that the brake pads slide on as they wear down.
Was courteous. Reinstall the anchor plates and torque to spec.
John 17 years of experience. Tighten the bolts to 148 lb-ft.
The lug nuts alone take 150 ftlb and there are 24 of them. YourMechanic Benefits Online Booking. You will have to take the noise damper bolt out with the caliper itself. Apply a thin layer of grease to the outside face of the hubs and slide the new rotors on.
Dealership replaced, but apparently did nothing to fix the issue. I had alot of meat left on the inside one but my outsides were more worn down. George 2017-05-21 22: This also makes reinstallation a snap. Does that alter the caliper-rotor torque specs, and if so, to what?
Request Torrieanto. Blue discoloration of rotor surface.
Do not twist it off as it may cause it to malfunction. I can't get a breaker bar in there, and my socket will not move it no matter how hard I try. Read FAQ. Perform a brake safety inspection.
Reese 2016-07-13 20: Is that type rotor on a 2014 F-150 or did they go back to a basic rotor like the one shown in your pictures? It is a good idea to get the thickness of brake rotors measured annually. This tools comes in handy but you may also use a C-Clamp and one of the brake pads to do the same job. Wedge the crow bar against the anchor plate and the rotor itself and give it hell.
