    Ford fg replacing rear rotors

    Hi guys, more specifically taking the rear rotor off

    I have new rotors and pads

    And handbrake is off

    it seems as if the handbrake wants to come with the rear rotor

    I can't find the adjuster to loosen the hand brake lining

    I've been suggested to use a large Puller that I have

    I've used a large hammer on it already to loose it

    I could pull the wheel off it feels if I'm breaking something if I do

    You're gonna wreck the shoe if you force it. There is an adjuster nut you can see through the hole on the face of the disc. Turn it around while looking inside with a torch until you find it.

      I cannot find the adjuster nut. I have looked many times.

        The puller is going to trash the shoes and probably pull the disc out of flat.
        "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

          There is no adjusting nut like the one in the pic?

            Is this a case where the past adjustments were done at the cable/lever and the peanuts ignored orientating the rotor so that the adjuster is exposed?

            Because thatís the kind of shortcut Iíve heard about with these.

              Not that I can see one and if I do try and takes the disc off it seems as if the handbrake lining is coming with it

                No, the hole is outside the diameter of the hub.

                It's there, it might be on the bottom on an FG.

                  FG hole is in a different spot to BA/F
                  So I'd say the holes not in the right spot and you won't find the adjuster
                  You just need to get em off
                  Then replace shoe
                  And make sure new disc had adjuster hole in correct spot

                  If you have a look at a DBA505 you'll see what I mean about the extra adjuster hole they started puttin in for the FG

                      Thanks for everyone's comments here's where I'm up to

                      I was rotating the rotor clockwise, trying to take it off


                      So what do? Keep on doing pulling it out and rotating it?

                      The new rotor has The Adjustment hole in the same place as the rotor, I can't find it where it is

                        Crowbar on either side behind the disc and wiggle it off side to side? Some brands (Bendix maybe?) come with new retaining springs when you buy the handbrake shoes. You may however bend the the little clip on the backing plate that holds the spring.

                          Thanks for everyone's replies.

                          I could slowy get the rotor on and off by rotating it and trying to pull on/off at the same time.

                          I finished the left side now and it seems ok

                          The adjuster seems hard to get to with the rotor on

                          I had difficulty getting the new rotor to sit flush as well

                          Took it for a spin it seems ok

                            For closure.



                            Thanks for everyone's replies and arronm's detailed replies with pics

                            The left side took about 2 hours to complete

                            The rotor came off quite easily

                            These rotors were from DBA slotted type as well

                            Whoever installed them put them the wrong way around I mean left to right

                            For the front I have remsa pads, I found with the 6 piston brembos, they didn't fade at Wakefield. I like these as street pads.

                            Next I'm going to put Bendix Ultimate in the front, followed by qfm zx2800.
