Question about 2006 Ford F-150

1 Answer

My 2006 ford 150 super crew front brakes seem to be flaking off? When I look at my front tire wheel covers I find residue on the wheel covers, I do not ride my brakes in traffic, what is the problem, just started a few weeks ago. I have 70000 kms and had brakes checked and was told the brakes have about 50% left, more highway miles as I have second car for city driving. Garry

It's not uncommon to find brake dust on the wheel covers. If it is excessive, one possibility is that the pistons are sticking in the caliper bores. Jack up a wheel and give it a spin with your hand. If it spins easily, then all is well. Check your wheel bearing play while you have it jacked up. There shouldn't be any significant looseness. 70,000 km and only halfway through the pads sounds good. Cheers!

About the only thing left is to replace the caliper. I've seen a few times, but not common. Piston gets bound on corrosion in caliper and doesn't retract completely.

Rear wheels on 2000 super duty f250 skid in reverse only


I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a severe problem in the rear end. Here are a couple of things i would do. First pull off your tires and wheels. Of course you need to put the truck on jack stands and block the wheels for safety! Disconnect your rear drive line so you know nothing from front diff or trans could be affecting it. Next spin the brake rotors by hand and inspect them for severe damage. Go forwards and backwards. Also listen in your rear end for grinding or clunking noises and also excessive play front foward to reverse. And last drain your oil and put your finger up inside the housing as far as you can and feel for large pieces that should not be there. This should give you a good idea if it is in your braking sytem your rear end or wether you need to start looking at front diff. or the trans. If all is good on rear end do the same thing for front diff and inspect it as well. Make sure you pull front driveline off!

2006 ford escape - abs and 4wd lights on yesterday - off today - brakes checked - ok - right turn makes grinding noise with slight application of brake -


the grinding nose you heard was something rubbing on the rotor, bad brakes, caliper, after market wheels, etc. the pressure of a turn bends something enough to touch, this is produceing metal flake that attached to the magnetic sensor on the abs sending a light on because it couldn't read the tire position as it turned, it may have got blown off, washed off, but when it can read the tire again the light will go off, i would look into the grinding noise on cornering thats the cause of the problem. hope this helps
