    It's late so to make this brief you do know that model has the inboard brakes right?

    First step to work on the brakes is to remove axle from loader then split the ends of axles off the differential housing!

    Thanks for the reply Yes I knew it had inboards I was afraid that axle removal was the the first move trying to think of the best way to get blocked up and out of there will have to look at more in the morning

    First remove the 2 long bleed screws in the top of the axle so you don't break them off. Block the machine on the front frame behind the axle where it is close to the ground. You can lift it with the bucket. Then remove the wheels and drop the axle down and out one side. The other method is to leave the tires on and roll it out the front but I find it easier to get rid of the wheels first.

    If you want an extract from the Service Manual for the R&I of the front axle and the D&A procedure for the brakes send me a PM with your email address.

    I wasn't offering the OP a complete Service Manual, just the pages referring to the procedure to disassemble and reassemble the brakes. For a complete Service Manual in paper form you need to be looking at somewhere like eBay.

    Here's an example ........ http://www.ebay.com/itm/Caterpillar...vice-Manual-/311421964643?hash=item4882321163
    or this one ............ http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAT-Caterpi...vice-Manual-/380720551153?hash=item58a4b694f1
