New rotors and new brake pads ...
...full job would include loaded calipers with all new hardware ..if you pay attention to disassembly you will not need a service manual necessarly..all is logical and straightforward...but you are dealing with safety so be sure you are good before taking a drive ...good luck

    new rotors, new break pads... new hardware loaded in the break pad guides and clean up and recompression of break pistons. After job is complete and wheels are put back on. went for the first test drive and the breaks soft at first (expected becaust of piston compression) the breaks give a slow pulsing feeling... still dont know where the issue is.

    pulse is usually warped rotors... and you should have pumped the brakes before driving , and bled the system to void any air .....any check engine or ABS light on? the steering whell oscillating at all? could be wheels/tires out of balance

Changing rear brakes on 2000 lincoln LS

You will need a special tool for the back brakes,Autozone will loan it to you for 60 bucks,you will get it back when you return,I used it.I replaced brake pads front and back and both back rotors.The driver side rear had metal on metal,all disc brakes,brake pads on that rear side were completely worn down to metal,the driver side was like new,kept wondering why,replaced both rear rotors,put back together,then then I noticed where brake line hose went into brake caliber was leaking,so that caused the side with new like brake pads not to be gripping disc putting all brake pressure of that one side,so the copper fitting their was bad,put new one on and leak stopped.

Did the dealership cause the ABS/AdvancTrac/Brake lights problem?

Rear wheel sensors may be embedded in the rotors, and they may have put the wrong ones in place. Doubt it's the module. also doubt that they are not available anymore.

I cant get the rear rotors to come off my 2000 lincoln ls

Only rust holding the rotors on-- from neglect

You have to remove the rotors once a year &
remove ALL rust from the wheel hub face,both sides
of the rotor hat & use anti-seize on those surfaces

Brand new vehicles come off the assy line bone dry &
rust on while on the rail cars or car carriers & have to come
apart as well

Dealers do nothing at all, as far a delivery prep
You get the new vehicle as it came off the car carrier

Hit the rotor with a 2x4,4x4 etc (wood)

If your throwing away the rear rotors & they rust so bad on
an L/S, you may as well, verse turning them,then use a dead
blow hammer or a steel mallet on the rotor face

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.

Rumbul nnoise in front when brakes are appled

The brake pad is worn down to the rivet that holds the pad to the base.
The metal rivets are in contact with the metal brake rotor.
Replace both front brake pads and at least one rotor.
You should be able to see both front rotors w/o removing the wheels.
The rotor with rings like Saturn (the planet) is the one to replace.

Replace soon before the other rotor meets the same fate.

Hope this helps!

2002 Lincoln LS rotors keep warping

Warpage can be caused by many reasons, such as getting real hot ( normal ), and you driving though a nice cold puddle. INSTANT warp. Also tightening wheel lug nuts too tight can warp rotors. Should be tighten with a torque wrench to factory spec.
