\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012Raise vehicle on hoist.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012Remove wheel and tire assembly. Be careful to avoid damage or interference \015\012with caliper bleeder screw fitting and front disc brake rotor shield (2K004). \015\012
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Handle \015\012front disc brake rotor (1125) and disc brake caliper (2B120) assembly in such a \015\012way as to prevent deformation of front disc brake rotor , and nicking, \015\012scratching or contamination of brake linings/rotor surfaces.
    \015\012NOTE: To prevent damage, do not allow disc brake caliper to hang by the \015\012front brake hose (2078) .\015\012
    \015\012

    \015\012Remove caliper anchor plate bolts and discard. Position disc brake caliper \015\012out of the way. Prevent separation of caliper housing from anchor bracket \015\012because contamination of guide pin journals can occur.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012NOTE: If excessive force must be used during front disc brake rotor \015\012removal, the front disc brake rotor should be checked for runout prior to \015\012installation. \015\012
    \015\012

    \015\012If additional force is required to remove front disc brake rotor , apply Rust \015\012Penetrant and Inhibitor F2AZ-19A501-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification \015\012ESR-M99C56-A on front and rear rotor/hub mating surfaces. First, strike front \015\012disc brake rotor between lug bolts (1107) with a plastic hammer. If this does \015\012not work, attach 2-3 Jaw Puller 205-D027 (D80L-1013-A) or equivalent and remove \015\012front disc brake rotor . Remove front disc brake rotor from wheel hub (1104) \015\012assembly by pulling it off the lug bolts.
\015\012Installation
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012If original front disc brake rotor is being installed, make sure rotor \015\012braking and mounting surfaces are clean.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure \015\012to clean rust and foreign material from rotor and hub mounting faces when \015\012installing new or old front disc brake rotors will result in high rotor runout, \015\012which will speed up the development of brake roughness shudder \015\012vibration.
    \015\012Apply a small amount of Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound \015\012D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A to pilot \015\012diameter of front disc brake rotor.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012Install front disc brake rotor on wheel hub assembly.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012Install disc brake caliper and new caliper anchor bracket bolts on front disc \015\012brake rotor . Tighten caliper anchor bracket bolts to 88-118 Nm (65-87 lb-ft). \015\012
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure \015\012to tighten lug nuts (1012) in a star pattern may result in high rotor runout, \015\012which will speed up the development of brake roughness, shudder and \015\012vibration.
    \015\012Install wheel and tire assembly on vehicle. Tighten lug nuts to 115-142 Nm \015\012(85-104 lb-ft) using Rotunda Accutorq® Lug Nut Socket 164-R0303 or equivalent on \015\012a 1/2 inch air impact wrench, or use a torque wrench.
