How-To Replace Ford Expedition Rear Brake Pads

Brake pads on large sport with utility vehicles like the Ford Expedition often wear out more quickly than the passenger cars and can brake jobs are being costly but with only basic tools you can save yourself the money and service your own brake systems.

Other than the parts, to change your own rear brake pads you will need the following items:

-A floor jack
-Wheel wrench
-A socket set and ratchet
-Large pliers or c-clamp
-A wire brush
-Flat head screwdriver

Step One

Open the hood and check the brake fluid level before beginning. If your brake fluid its very low you may have more severe brake system with problems. With your F150 on the ground, take your wheel lug wrench and break the lugnuts loose. DO NOT REMOVE THEM; just make sure that they are all broken loose. This can be much harder to do when the truck is off the ground.

Step Two

Jack up the driver’s side of your F150 and place a jack stand under the truck then repeat on the passenger’s side. Use the wheel lug that are to wrench and to remove the lug nuts and rear wheels.
