New to the forum and want to ask a "Capt Obvious" question. More for a confirmation before I break something. Im trying to get my brakes done on my 92 E150, and there are no bolts in the caliper to hold it in place with the rotor. Instead, it just has pins or something. My question is, do you compress these pins and force them out to remove the calipers, or is there a back door secret that I should be aware of? If you do remove them, what is the best method? I have changed a number of brakes in my time, drums and disks, and I have never seen this setup before. Normally for disk brakes, I pop 2 bolts out and swap the pads within about 15min. Right now, Im stuck. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
PS...If you notice the rotors, they are garbage. Bought this van 3mo ago and the previous owner said all brake related items were replaced. It shows as far as the lines and master cylinder go (and receipts help too), but I was unaware that the brakes themselves were never done. So I have new rotors to install here too. Hoping my drums are good, will find out later on.
