How to Change the brake pads on Ford Escape It would be best to inspect the rear brakes if you haven't already done so.

Testimonial: "Didn't have time. After I posted the question I jacked up the back. Bearings felt and sounded good, cv's felt ok, although there was a pinhole where grease was pushing through on driver side, and there is a small leakout of the rear differential on the passenger side. I'll open the drums and take a look. Can drums warp?"

  • Joel Friedenberg Mar 26, 2014

    Yes drums can warp and you can get a shutter or vibration and pulsation from the rear brakes

these rotors are known for rusting onto the vehicle. when you removed them you probably had to beat them off with a hammer. if this is the case then you may have a small amount of surface corrosion on the hub. this could cause your rotor to not sit evenly and cause a wobble. recommend removing the new rotor and cleaning the surface of the hub

SOURCE: ABS braking

have you check? the master cylinder. sometine when you get the rotors cut they dont come out right because they may be warped or to thin. if you did the job yourself you might have put the calipers in on the wrong side. this happens alot . if your rotors front and rear are fine then switch the calipers to the other side.

SOURCE: Ford Escape Breaks

Did you replace them yourself or did you take them to a "qualified brake specialist"? It sounds like your brake lines need to be bled properly. You may also have one or more calipers sticking to cause the vibration.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

1993 buick lesabre changed the front rotars and pads and now the cars brake pedal is so hard to push down to get car to stop. Mechanic has checked both the front and back brakes and they are fine. T


I would jack up a front wheel and see if pushing on the pedal with the engine running will stop the wheel from turning.
You need to know if the pressure is reaching the wheels, or if the pads and rotors are too slick to stop the car.
Usually if the pedal is hard, the booster is not working or the brakes are glazed.
Can you stop the car with the parking brake ? That only uses the rear brakes.
You may need a second opinion from a different shop.

I just got an estimate have all 4 rotars "machined" and brake pads replaced - parts and labor were quoted at $542.40. Does this seem like a fair price.


These parts are brand new from autozone...Front brake rotor=90.00 for 2...rear rotor=60.00 for 2.....brake pads front=30.00/set...brake pads rear = 25.00/set...total = 205.00 parts
so the labor is 337.40....and the parts I looked up are not machined but NEW!!!...maybe you should do the work yourself....337 seems like alot of money....I do brakes for $50.00 labor per axle...especially if you are replacing all the parts...it's not very hard to accomplish...the front rotors easily pop off when you take off the caliper(which has to come off to do the pads) and then the rears are not really too difficult either...My opinion...either do it yourself or get another estimate...maybe there's an out of work backyard maechanic on your street you can give the job to..or if your in the indiana area...call me ...i'd be happy to do the work for ya 2196972613jeffrey

I have a 1999 lincoln continental and the front passenger side brake locks when driven for a while.


I just got a 1999 lincoln myself. And the front brakes locked up on it. Try to take off and it spit and sputter's. And floats around when try to stop. I replaced both brake calipers, pads, and one of the rotars. It had grooves wore in it. And changed the rubber hose going to the caliper. That is what the problem actually was. I noticed that the other side had already been changed beforre. But I wasn't sure. The caliper was rusted up where it got hot from rubbing. And it is posible for them to stick. Autozone $38 ea for calipers rebuilt. 40 for the pads. 20 for the rotar. And 35 for the hose. Now it drives like a dream.

Front rotors whine


a whine or a squeel
if you put hard long life pads on the material used sometimes makes that noise the nonmetalic pads are the best way to go as they don't wear out the rotors as bad but you need to change the pads sooner . the harder the pads the longer the life but they are hard on the rotors as well ,let the pads seat for a while and see if the noise eases up

Had bad vibration in front end of car when brakes applied,installed new rotors and pads,still have slight vibration when brakes applied.


do u feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in the seat,i bet the most vibration was coming out of the front brakes and a little out of the rear brakes,u might want to change the rear brakes if the vibration is still annoying,also were the front wheels torqued to spec when installed?? if not u might end up with warped front brakes again,hope this helped

Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.

How to change front brake pads


its simple, each brake caliper has two screws loosen the top bolt then take out the bottom one causing the caliper to rise, take out the old brake pads, be careful when installing the new ones to not touch the pads with your hands cause any kind of dirt can throw off the new pads while the calipers are up check the rotars to see how badly damage they are if they are really scratched or not, once placing the new pads into place close the calipers and re tighten the screws into place.

The brake calipers don't seem to be relesing all the way you might have to replace them or try to get a brake bleeping service and see if that helps them out. Does it pull when you hit the brakes?
