I'm not sure I never had to do that yet. But if you buy a repair book for that year, make and model it will show you.

They can be a PITA. They rust on. Try soaking it down with PB-blaster first and then smack the rotor between the wheel studs with either a plastic or copper hammer. I have had to put in ear plugs and beat them off with a hand sledge. They are scap iron at that point.

Good luck and let us know. :)

The pb blaster worked well along with the sledge, thank you, Jim

Ford dealers actually have a brake lathe that will turn down the rotors without removing them. They don't like taking the rotors off either. $75.00 apiece to turn down a rotor. :(

New rotors are better anyway. :)
