I have a strange, intermittent squealing noise coming from the driver's side front. It sounds like it's coming from the tire, and when I put on the brakes it seems to affect it.

That sounds like the wear indicators are causing the squealing. They are a small piece of metal attatched to the brake pad, that when the pads wear down to a certain point, they began to touch the rotor when the brakes are applied and make a squealing noise to let you know you should check/replace your brake pads.

Im in the rocess of puting new brake pads and rotors on a 1994 ford explorer 4 wheel drive and cant get the old rotors off can you tell me an easy way to get them off?

Sometimes this would require a little "elbow greese"lol. If you have correctly taken everything off then try spraying some penatrating lube on the studs, front,and back of the rotor.

Scrapping noises as i am driving and when i turn the corner the sound gets lower

Sounds to me that the brake pads could be the issue. They have a small metal stand that scrapes on the brake drums when it is time to change them. If it is the brakes and you continue to drive with them in that condition, they could cut into your rotors causing more damage. To check, remove the front tire and inspect the brake drum, it should be smooth surfaced with no grooves. You should also be able to inspect the pads themselves. With the tire removed, insert your head to the back of the rotor assembly. There should be an area where you can see the thickness of the brake pads and they should be 1/4 in or more if still in good condition. Otherwise I would replace them.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?

The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

How do i remove front pads from 89 probe?

the caliper has 2 bolts holding it in.remove the bolts.slide off the caliper and replace the need to put a lubricant on the pads,and compress the pistons in all the way with a caliper piston tool,costs about 10 dollars.,or the new pads which are much thicker will not go on.also lube the bolts,known as slider pins or they can jam up.if there is brake pulsation you need to turn the remove the rotors ,you need to remove the bracket that the caliper bolts to.there are 2 bolts holding on the bracket.then the rotor can come off to be turned.if the rotors are not thick enough after turning,,they need to be replaced

I was told that the front brake rotors wear at the same rate as the pads. Is this true?

NO. Brake Pads wear out at a totally different rate then Rotors.Speed, Road Conditions, etc can have an adverse affect on Pad vs Rotors.

Need to replace front rotors and brake pads

All you have to do is take off your calipers and the rotor will slide right off. Use a C clamp to push the piston of the caliper back in so you can put your new brakes on.
