SOURCE: Change the brakes on 2007 sport trac

it has front and rear disc brakes, disc brakes are very simple to change out. Most disc brakes have two bolts that hold them on, one on the bottom one on the top on the inside of the brake caliper, they may be an allen head, or just a bolt. Remove them counter-clockwise. After you remove the two bolts, lift up and away on the caliper and the whole assembly will come off. Once you pull the assembly off you will see the two pads, one of them is driven by a piston, the other one is fixed. Remove the fixed one, they just pop off (have little metal clips you may have to slide the pad off). Take a C-clamp or something comparable to squeeze with, place it on the back of the caliper and on the old pad thereby squeezing the cylinder back into the piston, once you squeeze the cylinder back into the piston, it will give you room needed for thicker new brake pads. Piston should retract with the c-clamp fairly easy, shouldn't be a whole lot of resistance. Remove c-clamp after you get it to retract and remove old pad. Put new pad on, just like you took the old ones off. All four are basically the same to change out, they all have two bolts holding them on. You pull those, get the pistons to retract and replace the worn pads, put them back on, line up holes, put bolts back in... and your good to go. When you get back in the car and turn the key on, you may have to pump the brakes a few times.

SOURCE: ford sport trac, 4.0 dry

how many miles on the vehicle? does the noise quieten down when the engine RPMs come up? timing chain is very likely if you have over 150,000 miles. lifter noise is a more common problem. the lifters will tend to quieten down as the RPMs come up due to more oil pressure.

2007 ford sport trac 4.0 v6 ive had a squeak on first startup for awhile removed the belt and the squeak is still there only last a second is it my harmonic balancer definitely sounds like a bearing?


I have heard noise like this in the camshaft from lack of lubrication on the 4.0, there were Tech bulletins about it but that was many years ago and I am retired. I would at least consult a local dealer service dept or a shop that really knows this engine and all of it's problems, and it had many. That is entirely your decision, if I were you I would turn up the radio.

Rearend noise on 2004 Ford Explorer Sport trac


what type of noise?
have you checked the fluid?

if its a grinding noise while driving it could be choppy tires carrier bearings or axle bearings.

if its a whine while accelerating or decelerating than it is pinion angle.

if you can safly get both rear tires off of the ground than start it and put it in gear, try to locate the exact location "center chunk or out far in axle tubes" make sure vehicle is secure and safe befor climbing underneath.
