Question about 2007 Ford Expedition EL XLT

1 Answer

I have put 4 sets of brakes on in the past 10,000 miles. I don't hear a brake problem until I drive in a residential area (stop signs) about 7 miles. Then it appears and it won't go away. Our last set we had dealer brakes put on. And we deal w/a vey reputable brake mechanic. Is there any problem to pinpoint so I don't have to live w/this noise constantly. My noise is loud but the brakes don't seem to be worn?

Clicking noise in rear brakes once pedal brake has depress it going away


Sounds like you have drum brakes in the rear....if so....find a safe place to put your car in reverse and slowly accelerate until traveling about 7 miles per hour...don't try and read you speedometer while driving in reverse...it won't register when traveling backwards...just guess when your at about 7 miles per hour....then slam your brakes on to stop as quick as you can...repeat about 4 or 5 times.
Drum brakes have a self tightening device that is supposed to work it's magic every time you brake while traveling in reverse.
I think your rear drum brakes are lose because you hardly ever drive in reverse, am I right?...I suspect.it is those lose brake shoes rattling, making occasional contact with your brake drums.

If the sound persists after the first 5 back up and stops...try it 5 more times...then test again....if the sound is gone...good...now you know how to fix it when it happens again....
Or... if it sounds like you made an improvement by reducing the noise/sound....repeat the back up and stop thing until it is gone or at a level that seems acceptable....because by being lose and bouncing against the drums...the brake shoes might not immediately be able to be set back to the closest setting....because they were unevenly worn from the bouncing...
In this case....adjust them until no more improvement is being made....then in two weeks....do the back up and stop thing again to set the brake shoes where they should be....now you should hear very little to no noise......but....
If the sound still happens....have a mechanic at a brake shop inspect it....good luck and make sure there isn't any thing laying lose in the car or trunk that will fly when you hit the brakes to adjust the brake shoes....be safe ...find a big open area to do the reverse...then brake hard thing...an open area where no one else is around to get in your way....a place where there are no poles trees or curbs to hit...a place where there is a paved surface to do it on...like a parking lot at an abandoned super market or plaza....chose your place to do it carefully and think about what you could hit or what you could run over before starting....just be safe....

I hear a clicking noise when I press lightly on the breaks for my 2010 Nissan Maxima. I got new pads, my rotors shaved, and new brake hardware. I started hearing it after that. It comes from the fro


Could be an axle going bad, an improperly installed brake part or an issue with a tire or something in your tire. Somethings can not be diagnosed over the internet so if all these areas have been addressed and you cannot find anything you might want to find a mechanic you trust.

Hearing noise from right rear wheel on 99 saturn sl. sounds like flat tire while driving.


If pressing the brake pedal does not affect the sound, buy a pair of rear wheel bearings and pay a shop to install them for you. If the rear brakes have not been serviced in the past 10,000 miles then buy all that stuff, including slave cylinders if so equipped, and have it done as well as you will save on labor as the thing will be completely apart

Abs brakes chirping noise, when pedal depressed,


worn out brake pads and slightly warped rotors. Most brake pads have small steel tabs that touch the rotor at a 90 degree angle when it is time for replacement. if you keep driving on the worn pads, it will stop chirping but that just means the tabs (also called wear indicators) have broken off and repair is about to get very pricey.

At what mileage should the rear brakes be replaced? Is it common for the rear brakes to be replaced at less than 22,000 miles on a 2007 Sonata gls?


Most of the stopping power goes to the front of the car. You usually go thru two sets or sometimes three sets of front pads before you need to change the rear brakes. It sounds odd the rear brakes need to be replaced at 22,000. havee the front brakes been replaced before?

Brakes


Don't wait until the last moment to put your brakes on. When you know you're going to have to stop, get off the gas and LIGHTLY, apply the brakes to start the slow down process. Putting a lot of pressure on the brakes to stop a vehicle causes them to wear out. I normally get about 80,000 from a set of brakes. I've been driving this way since 1970.

To many front rotor changes


make sure the caplipers are doing their job properly. if the calipers are not functioning properly that will cause uneven wear as well as a dragging, as in the pads are not coming off of the rotor and therefore rubbing while you're driving. also, check to see that you are getting a pad that will wear without so much rotor wear. they make pads that will absorb more wear so that you don't have to replace the rotors every time you have your brakes done. And if that doesn't work... no joke, change your braking habits. unfortunatly, to many people wait till they're at the stop sign or red light to apply the brakes instead of preparing for the known. my brakes have been on my truck (HEAVY) for 50,000 miles (hard use) and have only begun to squeak in the last 100 miles. Changed my brakes completely and my braking habits. good luck
