Sounds like maybe air in the line. Your brakes should be bled soon.

2007 ford sport trac new brakes hear a clicking coming from brake caliper when stopping can i just bleed them or is it going bad? disk front and back


If the brakes are making a clicking sound when the brake is applied, that means that something may not have been put back together right. I would definitely yank it back apart and check to make sure that the brake pads fit securely in the brackets with no play at all, too. It's easy to get the wrong pads for a Sport Trac; the parts are completely unique and a lot of parts stores even have incorrect listings for brake and suspension parts for those things. Brake system wear can create a grinding, pulsing, or squealing sound, but shouldn't produce a click. Something isn't right there!

When you apply brakes the vehicle stops then lunges forward


your brake pads could be low and this causing this issue... Replace the pads.. There should be about 1 CM of "meat" on both the inner and outer pad

2003 sport trac actuates abs at 2 mph on easy stops abs light is not on


Wayne, I would start with the brake wheel sensors, most likely the front end- I would start there first.
Has this vehicle had brake pads replaced, or had recent brake work? If so, what was done, and by who? (home job, or brake shop?)

My nissan navara d22 2001 model has spongy brake pedel,after changing brake shoes,didnt open any brake lines


Any time you install new pads,
it is a must that you have the rotors machined.

You need to flush the brake fluid evey two years,
unless you like a lot of moisture in the system
and other problems that will come in time.

New pads always feel a little spongy for a week or so

2001 ford sports trac brake lights not working ,


This may be a simple fix, where the wheel jack or washer bottle is located in the back behind the panel, there should be connectors for the rear lights, it is possible that the plug has been dislodged, remove the panels and check the plug connections. Good luck.

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.

Brake pads warning light 2002 tdi sport


Yes the wires may be "vibrating" when the car is driven so it trips the brake sensor.

This happens to my 07 Passat with the check engine light
