Asked by ty1on Aug 28, 2014 at 02:57 PM about the 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son sheared off one stud and messed up two other studs. Need to replace them, got the caliper off, caliper bridge still on with what looks like four bolts behind the shield. Can't seem to get rotor off to get to studs. I don't really want to mess with rear axle. Hoping that the shield has a openong where I can knock out the studs for replacement. Help!

I was trying to find a post by TST about the same thing, can't find it but it has to do with parking brake and something that has to come off before rotors will. Hopefully he will see this

Move the screw driver or brake tool up to loosen.and down to tighten it,it is called a brake clicker.
