Subject: FTE Small - Brake Caliper

Does anyone know what size torx wrench is takes to get the caliper off
of a 1988 Bronco II? I want to replace the calipers and pads on my front
end, but don't know what size of a bolt that would be back there...
Chiltons manual is very vague and indescriptive about it. Any other
hints would be appreciated...

Thanks,

Adam

beginning (before it got incredibly hot), it worked (it blew hot air)
However, when It became very hot, the heat did not work anymore.. it blew
cool air in. Does this mean something?


Thanks,

Yes, it means that something (thermostat?) is stopping the coolant from
circulating. The coolant that was in the heater coils cooled off because it
couldn't get back to the engine to be reheated.

other guages are all read normal. I ran a voltmeter across the batery.
With the engine off I get 12.5 volts. With it running I get 13.8 or
13.9. This seems ok to me. Can anyone think of anything else besides a
bad guage? The only other thing I can think of is that the truck was
made in October of 93, making the battery almost 6 years old. Could a
shorted or open battery cause this? Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like the gauge or a wire/connector going to it.

Explorer then was a line of trim level. Later Ford used that name for their
wagon based on the pickuptruck, which is still in production today.You need
the 80-96 list >>

Thanks for the info, Bob. I just saw a full-size Ford pickup today that had
'Explorer' on the side of the bed towards the rear. And now I understand why
that was.

Hey,
Sounds like a broken wire/cable, or the gauge itself. It would probably b
easier to diagnose online if you had of told us which gauge it was because
it could b a sensor or such.
