Did you try changing front brake flex pipes, sometimes depending on age of vehicle the pipes can collapse from the inside when brakes are pressed on the pressure is forced down but there is no force to release pressure when let off sometimes causing the calipers to stick on. Assuming that both calipers are new and not second hand I would try replacing flex pipes.

My 1998 ford escort brake peddle started pulsing and then a noise. Checked fluid, not down any fluid, and no leeks, just feels like I can not stop well., No ABS lite til yesterday, then it came on after...


Normally a "pulsing" brake pedal means that that you have a warped brake rotor or the brake caliper is lose. I would start by taking the front wheel off and inspecting the brake pads and the rotor. If the brake pads are worn down bad replace them. Pay special attention to the brake rotors also as if the are grooved very bad, they should also be replaced.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BRAKE PADS ON A FORD ESCORT I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO FIT THE BRAKE PADS


In very general terms...Take off the wheel then unbolt the brake caliper and pull it off the disc. Next remove the old pads from the caliper. Next you have to push the caliper piston right back into its housing. You can use a g clamp to push it back. If it is not right back the new pads will be too tight on the disc and you wont get it back on. Now put the new pads in the caliper and fit the assembly over the disc and bolt everything back together. When pushing the piston back check the fluid level in the resivior as the level will increase. If the fluid overflows it will damage your paintwork.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

Instructions to change the brakes


look for 2 bolts or pins that go right thru the calipers, they actually retain the pads, normally the heads will be on the back side of the caliper. take them out, there may be thin metal clips (springy) on top of the pads. remove them too. slide out pads working the caliper back and forth to loosen them up. open up fluid resevoir then with a large screwdriver push the brake piston back so as to be able to get new pads it, bolt it all back and your are done.

Replacing the front brake caliper on a 1999 Ford Escort


Very simple. Have the proper tools for one. Two...lay cardboard down because the brake dust will make some cruddy marks on the pavement. Three...are replacing the WHOL:E caliper or just replacing/resealing the piston?

Very simple to do, just make sure you block the rear wheels or front (depending on which one you are doing).

Unbolt the two carrier bolts, one upper and one lower. These are commonly hex head or "allen" head fastners. Next, have a small container under the hose you will be disconnecting. I hope you have some help to bleed.....you will need to do so. Get the extra brake fluid ahead of time....that's all you need to do really...and once you unblot and disconnect, the brake caliper should be sitting in your lap!
