Before you pushed the caliper piston back in (in order to get the new pads on over the disc), you should have lubed the piston. Also, the rods, levers or arms should have been cleaned off and lubed on the touch points.

SOURCE: need to replace the rear rotors on the ford f150 2005 4x4

yes they should come off unless they are stuck. this is where the problem arises. if the rotors are stuck. what you can do is slam the whole piece where the rotor is on a block of wood so that it won't be damaged. but the rotor would not be touching the wood. let the weight of the rotor force itself off it's holder.

as it comes off, you could notice the rust that have caused it to stuck.
clean it thoroughly before assembling back.

i hope i was able to help,

Have someone push & release pedal while at wheel with problem. See if it takes a while or slow to release. If yes, have wrench ready on bleeder screw, and try again, if it sticks/holds, crack bleeder screw, if it releases, I'd replace hose.

SOURCE: rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads

you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.

My rear driver side wheel was smoking. when i removed it i noticed the disk had grinded into the caliper. would that have anything to do with the bearing?0


The brake pad apparently was just worn out and the metal on metal where the pad pushed grooves into the rotor will not cause the wheel bearing to fail although the heat from that mess is not good for the bearing grease. YOu should replace the rotor and install new brake pads.

I have replaced back disc s and pads and the drivers side callapar on my honda shuttle and they sound worse than before (still grinding ) did bleed ttem aswell


With modern day semi-metallic pads and new rotors(discs), you will have a mild grinding as the new pads and discs "marry" or resurface. This should go away though.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?


The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

Front brakes drag help!!


Try replacing the brake hose they have a tendancy to collapse on the inside over time due to age and will cause brake drag.

Front brake pads for 1997 ford ecscort encore


The binding of the brakes is causing the pads to overheat, which is causing the smoke. You need pull the wheel and check things out. Your caliper must be bad (not releasing). You need to replace the caliper, brake pads, and have the rotor cut (a full service parts store or shop cuts the rotor perfectly smooth on both sides), or replaced (it may be cheaper to just buy a new rotor). You should also always change the pads (and check everything else) on the opposite side. So, if u do the brakes on the driver side front, always do the front pass. side at the same time, likewise if u do rear brakes.
Whenever you do brakes u should also flush out the brake lines (by bleeding the brakes) until the brake fluid flows absolutely clear. Old brake fluid is the #1 reason for caliper failure. I've seen many times people replace brake components w/out changing the brake fluid, only to have the brakes wear out very quickly, or not function properly. good luck! hope this helps> please rate this!couontrycurt0
