The caliper is probably stuck, I had to replace one of mine, drivers rear. The piston on the caliper screws back in, so you'll need a caliper press to seat the piston.

Never change a caliper without changing the brake hose. I changed a 94 lincoln Continental rear caliper 3 times before discovering the brake hose had internally collapsed. Chaged it out, solved problem immediately. Your problem sounds a little different however... Mine, the rear caliper would not release.

How do you get the rear caliper to retract when installing new brake pads? On a Lincoln 2007 mkz?

Need to buy a tool at auto parts store ,that
fits the rear caliper piston,so you can turn it
clockwise. ( Looks like a cube) $8.00

What your doing is actually turning in or back -- the
parking brake adjuster.

The tool will be turned with a 3/8" extension & ratchet

Opening the bleeder valve will help as you have to
push the piston in as well as turn it in.

Need to bleed all 4 wheels every 2 years anyway.

You may have to file the tool to get a combination
that will work
I had to do that with the Lincoln LS

Once the pads are on,you ratchet up the parking
brake,bringing the pads in contact with the rotors.

Press the brake pedal a few times before going into
rev or drive, to seat pads

The notch on the caliper piston, goes to the top
so the pin on pads will fit

Do the rear calipers on a 2004 lincoln LS push in or turn in when trying to replace pads?

You open the bleeder valve
Then you need a tool, to turn in the parking brake ratchet,clockwise
As your turning in the piston,it will also push back into the caliper

After you have pads on,ratchet up P-Brake by hand

Then bleed all 4 wheels
You do not bleed ABS,but you do however have motor running
and a helper to slowly press brake pedal, as you open and close
bleeder approx 10 times,until clear fluid and no air.

Do this every 2 years (bleed)

You will not find an LS tool. Buy the $9.00 square combo cheapy
and file a little off one of the two pin sides, to fit

When you turn the piston, be sure the notch is up,I think,so the pad pin goes over it

Use Raybestos Ceramic Pads on front and back
Backs were Ceramic OEM and fronts work well and no dust.

Sand off all rust everywhere,anti-seize on all caliper mounting stainless
slippers and pad ends.
Both sides of rotors,back of wheels etc.
May have to file off paint from pad ends, to get a nice fit and sliding free

I have a 2000 Lincoln LS. The right rear wheel is making a grinding/rubbing noise when I drive. It gets louder when I brake. I can hear it witht he window down just driving slowly in my neighborhood but...

If you have 4 wheel disc brakes your Emergency brakes could be rubbing. Or when you use your brakes, the brakepads could be bad.

The Emergency brakes require removing the rear rotors to inspect the E brakes. The wheel bearings usually make a noise whether you use the brakes or not. If you want to replace the rear brakes you need to remove the wheel, then the Caliper, and then the Rotor.

Since there are 2 sets of brakes in the rear, it is much easier to do the front brakes having 1 set. You can price out the job at Brake shops beforehand.

A lot of what the shops say is like Jibberish, if this is bad, if that is bad, but it is accurate. You need new Brake hardware, and shoes and pads. Calipers can be reused if they can be bled. Brake hoses and lines are Iffy, your vehicle is 10 years old, depends on Rust condition. E brake cables, may be good or bad, depends if they work.

I would not worry about the bearing until all the brake parts are accounted for.

What does it mean if transmission is locked have 2001 lincoln ls v8

Light next to cup holder? Advanced Traction Control. An option that Iam sorry I got ,and is pretty well useless, and that switch works backwards. Never know that reading the manual 50 times. Make sure it is not lit on dash or console and forget it. Part of the ABS system that makes things worse,rather than better. Don't get on a slippery surface with it on,or the rear brakes slam on and off and half the engine cylinders are killed and your stuck in the snow. Way to go Ford Engineers. Rather have a Toyota with a bad gas pedal.

2001 lincoln ls v6 left rear is squeakin when i

How are the rear brake rotors and calipers. If you do not take them apart twice a year and clean up rust, lube certain parts, the pads will drag. Also if your caliper is from 2001 it may be all rust inside,especially if you do not change/flushing your brake fluid every two years. I also have a 2004 LS and 45 years experience with this and never a problem with brakes on any veh from 1962 thru 2009. It is all about neglect and lack of knowledge ,not to be hurtfull here.
