Removal NOTE: If, for any reason, the rear hub (1109) is removed from the spindle, the old hub seal must be removed and a new hub seal installed. 1. Set the parking brake and loosen the eight axle shaft retaining bolts. 2. Raise the vehicle to the desired working height, keeping the axle parallel with the floor. 3. Release parking brake and back off the rear brake adjustment, if necessary. 4. Remove the wheel (1007). 5. Remove brake drum (1126). Push-on (sheet metal) drum retainer nuts may be discarded.

CAUTION: A new hub nut must be installed if used hub nut comes apart during removal or installation. CAUTION: Under no circumstances are power impact tools to be used when performing these operations. NOTE: The hub nut will ratchet during this operation. Remove hub nut (counterclockwise for right-hand thread; clockwise for left-hand thread). 9. Install Step Plate Adapter D80L-630-7 (Part of Step Plate Adapter Set D80L-630-A) or equivalent. 10.

Always discard the screw and install a new one. The torque prevailing differential pinion shaft lock screw has a 12-point drive head. This type of screw is reusable for no more than four installations. When in doubt about the number of installations of a torque prevailing differential pinion shaft lock screw, discard it and install a new screw. Remove the lock screw. 6.

ACTION Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition. SERVICE PROCEDURE To service, reduce/minimize moisture intrusion into the rear drum brake assemblies by applying Motorcraft® Silicone Gasket and Sealant to the brake backing plate. 1. Place vehicle on hoist and remove the rear wheels. 2. Remove the rear brake drums and replace the rear linings. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 206-02. WARNING Do not breathe dust or use compressed air to blow dust from storage containers or friction components. Remove dust using government-approved techniques. Friction component dust may be a cancer and lung disease hazard. Exposure to potentially hazardous components may occur if dusts are created during repair of friction components, such as brake pads and clutch discs. Exposure may also cause irritation to skin, eyes and respiratory tract, and may cause allergic reactions and/or may lead to other chronic health effects. If irritation persists, seek medical attention or advice. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury. 3. Inspect the rear brake assemblies for damaged, missing and/or improperly seated adjuster plug or parking brake cable. 4. Inspect and clean the lining contact area of the brake drum; machine if necessary. 5. Reinstall the rear brake drums and adjust the lining to drum clearance per WSM, Section 206-02. 6. Thoroughly clean the backside of the rear drum brake backing plate to promote proper adhesion of sealant. 7.
