Hi!!

It depends on your driving habits and how much you drive the vehicle. All brake pads, have a metal tab that let you know when the brake pads need to be replaced.. so don't worry about it for now, when you start hearing a scratching sound coming from the brake disks, is time to replace them.

Whining sound coming from rear of vehicle when I step on the brakes


if its only when you step on the brakes you may need brakes or you have a wheel seal leaking but probably low brakes. if you have disc brakes on the rear there is a sqeeler on the pad that scrapes the rotor when your brake pads are low.

I have a F150 p/u 2000 for 10yrs. Each year I change the brake pads. But the rear pads still looks like new. The front pads are worn down. What can be causing the problem?


normally, you replace the rear brake pads every other change in the front brake pads. for your case, it seems that the front brakes are the only ones working.

bleed your brakes to check if rear brakes are still working. after bleeding, check your brake master if it puts pressure equally to the 4 brakes.

Spongy brake pedal on 2003 Frod escort zx2.


loosen of the hand-brake adjustment and press the brake pedal a few times to self adjust the rear brakes.
Re-tighten the handbrake adj last.
Front brake sounds like a seized caliper,If possible remove caliper and clean and lubricate the piston.
This may work but replacement caliper may be the only other solution.Make sure the caliper slides are also clean and lubricated and the brake pads are in good order.(TRY THIS FIRST)
Also new brake shoes can make the pedal feel spongy for a couple of hundred miles until they have been run in.

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.
