f53 motorhome chassis. Rear brake calipers. How do you remove the pins holding the caliper assembly to the caliper carrier? 1993 Pace Arrow 35'
Make (other): Fleetwood
Model: Pace Arrow
Hello, I'm Chris.I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.
I can not find anything on Ford stating this 03 model has rear brake rotors and calipers. Your positive it is not drum brakes and is the year correct?
Can you attach a picture and I can then figure it out from the image?
It is a 1993 not an 03. It is an F53 Ford chassis under a Fleetwood Pace Arrow body. I know the difference between drum brakes and disc brakes!
I think someone may have done a conversion. I looked through each year and do not see disc brakes on the rear till 1996. Which look like the image below
Do the pins securing the calipers to the caliper bracket look like 2 (V's) aimed at each other with rubber between them?
I have the Ford manual for this chassis. it states on page 53 that the vehicle has self adusting disc brakes front and rear. It is the chassis book that came with the RV. The VIN is 3FCMF53G1PJA02631. I purchased the pads from the Ford Dealer and they supplied the same disc pads for front and rear. I cannot describe the pins because I have not been able to remove them yet. There are two steel spheres externally that appear to hold the pins in place somehow. I have tried squeezing them and spreading them but only succeed in moving them out about 1/8 of an inch. This unit only has 56,000 miles on it and this is the first brake replacement.
I am sure your right, I just do not have any proof to back up my answer, so I am not going to post one. It may just be a glitch in the ford tech manual not covering a rear disc option, see below. I will opt out and maybe another can answer and feel more comfortable than I do with there answer, best of luck.
Hello ,my name is JoeYour rear calipers are held in place with a set of slide "pins" like the ones shown. The pins have a rubber section in the middle.The pins must be driven out with a hammer & punch or an air hammer.I recommend using new slides and silicone grease during re-assembly.Thank you,-Joe
