Re: 2010 Ranger RWD....brake rotor front

2010 Ranger RWD....brake rotor front

Can someone tell me if the front brake rotors are with hub? All in one piece or is the rotor able to be removed seperately leaving the hub and wheel bearings in place? Dave

Re: 2010 Ranger 4 cyl. 5 speed

Thanks guys for the help. I located the idle air control valve and, with engine running at idle, I unplugged it and the engine stalled. So, I am assuming I can eliminate that. I have been watching...
