What brake part is this?

Changing the rotors on the rear of 2010 4x4 Ranger.
What is this(#3)?
It looks like it is just asking me to break it! (pun intended)
The caliper bolts are so small.

I believe it's a 'Brake Noise Dampener'.

Lost me on these comments...but they are telling you to torque it to 124 inch-pounds, which is just a tad over 10 foot-pounds.





Here is a typical brake dampener:

Thanks for the info. I appreciate it.
So the caliper bolt goes through it?
I said the bolt looks small as it appears to be around 13 mm.
My other cars (yes they have large brakes) are around 17 mm.

I believe the OEM might all be one piece. I know the Raybestos aftermarket version uses a separate 'guide pin lock bolt' to sort of attach it.

If it's a true one-piece, I would assume you need to use an open end wrench or vise-grips to thread it out - But I'm not 100% sure.

OEM Setup (I believe):


Raybestos aftermarket setup:

That is a great photo and really explains things for me.
Thanks!
Any other pitfalls that I might find doing these brakes?

No problem - I haven't heard of any other 'twists'!

Good Luck! lol
