Icon14 How to Replace Bake Pads and Rotors

Hey guys,

I made a new video on how to replace pads and rotors. The average cost at the dealer or a mechanic to replace the brakes and rotors for our Rangers/B3000s is $300. If you do this yourself, it will cost you $120! That is a savings of $180 plus you learn how your car works and you can use a good set of pads and rotors.

Let me know what you think of the video!

Neither of my Rangers are that easy. I have a '96 XLT and a '04 Edge and both require taking off the wheel bearings. Yours is set up like my wife's civic

Very helpful video. Might I suggest changing the title to 4wd/2wd-torsion bar ranger/b-series

2wd Rangers/B-series trucks(except edge/dual sport models) will require you to take the out the wheel bearings because the rotor acts as the wheel hub.
