Chang rear brake pads ford focus 2008


I can help you with this problem step by step remove the wheel one at a time. after removing wheel look behind the rotor for a 8 or 10 mm bolt or an allen head screw remove both of these. Then pry the brake housing up and off of the rotor once off look at both pads the one near the round cylinder may be different than the one in front make sure you look at both pads where they are while removing them. Once removed the rear pad where the cylinder is behind it needs to be pushed all the way in flush with the rubber carefully not tearing the rubber around it. Reinstall your pads in the same location they were in put the caliper back over the rotor there will be little room between the pads for this you may have to push hard. Once on put the 2 bolts back it tightly not over tight they do break. put back on your tire let it down then go inside and pump the brake pedal 2 to 4 times until hard then do the other tire. one at a time and look for anything left on the ground when done there should be only 2 bad pads nothing else. if you need further assistance during the procedure. my email is sj196653@yahoo.com request chat mention brakes in subject we will go from there.

Grinding sound when i turn or break. driverside front. noticed rotor damage, but im unsure if there is a larger underlying problem.


The most likely problem here is that your brake pads have worn down and you have metal on metal.This is DANGEROUS. It needs to be fixed right away as in do not drive the car until you do.Once you have the pads and rotor replaced then you can look for other problems, the most common being a sticky caliper. When you take do the brake pads, if only one side is worn to metal and there is a big difference in wear on the old pads, the caliper with the unworn pads is sticking and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

The handbrake doesn't hold the car on steep slopes, only gentler slopes - and even then I hold my breath! It's had new pads and the cable has been tightened too, but the problem's still there...


I think you should look into the possibility that your rear brake pads, and your parking brake pads are different items. Replacing one is not necessarily replacing the other. Many vehicles have different brake surfaces, and adjustments thereto, for parking brakes. Find the person who did the back brakes and ask him if there is another set of pads for the parking, and if so, did he replace those too? If they do not know, call a dealer parts department or a plain jane car parts store. I notice advance parts seems to indicate a parking brake shoe set for your car, in addition to the back brakes, but they do not sell them.

1997 suburban C1500. I replaced the Front pads


Hi,
You will have to check each brake caliper for pressure when the brake pedal is applied. You may have a sticking piston in one of the brake calipers.

This will cause a spongy pedal.

Hope this helps,let me know how you get on.

Thanks

Squeaking from front end but brakes seem fine and rotor is evenly worn


mcdevito75 here, Even brakes with wear on them can seem fine, It could be the little sensor on the brake pad signifying lower brake pads or it could be some brake dust on the back of the disc pads, Have your local shop check them.

Ok when i am driving my car and when i need to apply the breaks they make a almost squealing noise but after i drive for a little the stop any help will be much appriciated


I have same problem; turns out all Honda Accords of this generation (2003-2007) do this. It has something to do with cold brakes and unseated pads, and the first time you stop from medium speed, you will hear a grinding, maybe from the back of the car (i think in my case).
My girlfriend looks at me, and we both wonder what it is, but it goes away in about 1 minute and I've realized it's only when the brakes are cold and it's not a problem. My brakes are basically ok, and there is nothing to fix...
I've done enough reading about this car on the internet, I feel pretty sure everybody's Accord does this, so I stopped worrying about it. A real problem, the sound would not go away as soon as the brakes warm up and seat the pads. After that, the breaks work fine.
If it was worn pads, the squealers will start up and not go away quickly. If it was a worse problem, the sound would grind continuously until fixed.
The two major problems with Honda Accord brakes are: 1) Brake judder at hi-speed medium braking. If you are going downhill, and just want to slow the car a little, if your rotors are getting worn, the steering wheel will give you feedback as brake judder. Hit the brakes harder, it will go away but it's scary and requires the rotors be replaced with a much higher quality rotor than came from the factory, and probably want to use ceramic pads (like Bendix CQ or CT). 2) Back brake pads wear down quickly. I read about this constantly with Accord owners, the EX back brakes are smaller rotors and pads than the front, but the electronic brake distribution system of the Accord will balance brake force between front and back, so the front pads will actually last longer than the back pads! This is very unusual but entirely normal for this car. Most cars are the opposite but that may change as we see new generations of cars with more evenly balanced braking front to rear. Be ready and watch your back brakes closely. Mine were toast at 30k...
I replaced my back pads and rotors, used cheapest new rotors I could find, and ceramic pads, and they have lasted considerably longer than the first set.
I now have 92k on my 2004 and the original front brakes are ready to be replaced. I replaced back brakes at 34k I think, and was very surprised they needed replacement at early, but the new pads have gone almost 60k, but look ready to be replaced sometime this year I think.
I have bad judder on high speed braking, but the pads are still ok in front. Rotors are **** in front and I'll replace with Centric Cryo-Stop rotors, they should last a long time as long as they get put on straight and I don't let anybody warp them with an air gun at the tire shop...
Two other more minor problems to watch for on this car: 3) Inner pads may wear faster than outer pads, because the caliper is on the inside, and forces the outside pads to contact the rotor after the inner pads are already braking. Seems like all Accords do this at least a little. The inner pads are not easily viewed without removing wheels, so it's hard to tell, but if your outer pads look like they are starting to get worn down pretty well, chances are good the inner pads are even more worn and you are ready to replace pads. 4) Pads may wear faster on one side of the car (fronts) faster than the other side. For example many people report driver side pads wear faster than passenger side. And the reasons proposed have to do with fast stopping for right hand turns or freeway loops. The car spends more time being braked in a right turn than a left over time.. But of course, on my car, it seems to be the opposite. The passenger side is wearing faster! Go figure..

Replacing 2005 Honda Accord Rear Brake Pads OEM or Aftermarket?


I replaced a brake light switch on 2005 Honda Odyssey. While driving, my brake locked. I have to stop the car and step on the brake several times to release the brake to continue to drive. What is the problem and it is easily to fix at home before I bring the car into the shop?
