Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
My boyfriend had a problem with his 97 ford explorer that it grinds on the driver side really bad. First it started out just while he was hitting the breaks and now its while he is driving and sounds worst while hitting the brakes. He has replaced the brake pads, roater and callaber (sorry for the mispelled words) but now it just sounds worst then ever. Do anyone have an ideal on what it could be? We have tried alot and put hours into this vehicle and lots of money. Any advice would help. ASAP. THANKS
Wheel Bearings are very common on those vehicles jack it up and hold it on jackstands, grab the tire at 12 o'clock and 6 oclock, shake like push in at the top and out at the bottom and see if the wheel will move at all if it will the wheel bearing is bad, double check to make sure there is nothing touching the rotor, Take off the wheel , take off the caliper and inspect it very closely
