Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a threaded rod located within the caliber piston prevents compression of piston back into the caliber.


You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

Truck shakes severely when on the brakes


Your front brake rotors are warped. Remove them, see if they are turnable. (Metal brake lathe at auto repair shop, or auto machine shop)

The rotors have a minimum thickness. You cannot lathe them any thinner than this minimum thickness, or your safety will be at risk. (A reputable shop wouldn't even begin to ->Think about turning a rotor undersize. If they do this, and you are hurt, or killed, or someone else, they are liable!)

Your front brake rotors are like the shape of a thick disk, right? You have brake pads on both sides of this disk.

If the rotor is warped, you will have a thick edge on one side, and a thinner edge on the other side. (You're viewing the rotor from the edge)
As you apply your brakes the brake pads they squeeze against the rotor. They squeeze against the thinner edge, then suddenly the thick edge comes around.
This makes you brakes grab momentarily, then as the thin edge comes back around, the brakes let go.

Grab, let go, grab, let go. This is the teeth chattering stop effect, that occurs.

If the rotors can be turned, fine. If not, they will have to be replaced with new ones.

One more thing. As time goes by, this chattering effect when you are stopping, has put severe wear on your front end parts. You may have a bunch of front end parts that are badly worn. This is why it's imperative to have this problem fixed as soon as possible.

There is also the safety issue. What if you can't stop in time in an emergency situation? Either your life, and/or someone else's may be endangered.

Do i need to change the brake pads and discs???


No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down. The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor. Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.

HOW TO CHANGE THE REAR BRAKE FOR BENZ ML320 2001?


The rear brakes are very easy to change. There is nothing to worry about due to it being a 4-wheel vehicle and you only need to change the rotors if they are at minimum specs(printed on the rotor itself). If you don't have a micrometer to check the rotor thickness, then look at the edge of the rotor for a lip. A tall lip on the edge indicates it is best to change the rotors. Also, if the mileage is over 60k miles or you live in a cold climate(where there is a lot of sand/salt on the roads), it's a good idea to double check your parking brakes. But be careful when removing the rotors, they can hang up on the parking brake pad and potentially pull the pad loose. If the rotors are frozen on, use a lubricant like wd-40 on the center of the rotor and let it soak in, then tap around the outside edge of the rotor/hub area with a hammer to break it free.
