Re: 94 explorer brakes help
Just took my entire front end apart (have to replace ball joints). I
discovered that the 94 Explorer has 2 "pins" that hold the caliper in place.
You can just tap them out with a hammer and a screwdriver, once you've taken
the wheels off. The pins have a rubber "expander" in them that makes the
pin seat properly, but the pin itself should just slide right out with some
After you've got the caliper pins out, and the caliper in your hand, use a
C-clamp (don't use big lock-jaw pliers unless you're really careful, the
piston appears to be ceramic, and I chipped mine) to compress the piston.
If the piston doesn't compress back into the caliper relatively easily, it
is seized. Likely, replacement calipers would be needed (I doubt you can
get them rebuilt).
Hope that helps,
