Question about 2002 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

New brakes I now have a clicking sound in the front drivers side wheel when brakes are applied at low speed. I had recently put new pads on the front because the rotor on the drivers side was scorn. We cut the rotors and put new pads on, oddly enough the old pads were still alot of ceramic left on the pads but still cut into the rotor. Now there is a clicking sound

Try replacing or resurfacing your rotors and brake hardware. Using brake pads similar to the oem will also help stop any problems.

Check the brake rotor backing plate to see if it is rubbing against the brake rotor, check the brake pad condition at the same time, it may be the low brake pad sensors that you are hearing.

I have recently developed a loud "rattle" in the


if this only happens when you apply the brakes it most likely sounds to me like your rotor is warped and needs to be replaced... if you are going to be doing this make sure that you replace both sides and do the brake pads as well.. the brake system on a car is not something that one should cheap out on.

Grinding noise in driver side front wheel.


You either have a bad wheel bearing, or a bad brake pad. Does it do this only when you apply the brakes, or making turns, or is it continues. If its only while using the brakes, most likely the brake pads are worn. If it only does this while making turns, may be wheel bearing. Remove the front driver wheel and inspect the brake pad liners. check the thickness of the pads, make sure the pads are not metal to metal. to check the wheel bearing, while wheel is still on the car, put the front of car on jack stands, while wheel is off the ground spin the wheel and listen for any noise that sounds like the sound it was making while driving. If it makes this noise, you then can take a steel tube about 3 to 5 feet long, put it under the wheel and lift up and down on the wheel, and notice if it has any movement or play as you lift it up and down, if it moves, then likely its the wheel bearing.

Where do you put the brake fluid on this car? Because, my car is making a grinding sound when I put my foot on the brake.


The grinding noise probably means you need to put new brakes on. If you fill the brake fluid reservoir, and then change the brakes, the new fluid will run out anyways, because the new brakes will have to be put in, and the fluid will run out.

you need to inspect your backing plates for grooves in the pads where the brake shoes contact the backing plate. during a break job these spots are supposed to be lubed with proper non grease brake backing plate lube. some people use never sieze compound... also make sure brake shoes were installed correctly having the primary and secondary shoe correctly in it's place, if you have grooves in your backing plates then the shoes will bounce up and down as they move across the groves this will make a clicking noise, also have seen cracked brake drums make noise... give close inspection with wheels off , if you can jack rear of car off ground support with jack stands , chalk front wheels , then remove wheels on both sides but use a lug nut to hold brake drum on securley, now have someone watch and listen and watch as you let wheels spin under power of engine at low rpm , inspect and watch for possible clues...please rate my help, thanks...

Well even though you had the rotors turned, they still could be warped and causing the car to shake at a high rate of speed when the brakes are applied. My suggestion is to replace the rotors asap.
