two problems..believe one causes the other.

ok 1998 mustang gt....long storys short here.....

my parking brake sucks....i can yank it totally up with no resistance until you hit the last 3 clicks then it barely has any....3 buddies can push her with ease with brake fully up....how do i fix this...what is wrong?

next

just replaced brakes full rotors and pads front n back....my back brake is whining i mean screaming at point on the high way and sharp turns, non at lower speeds minus turning ...it stops when i barely hit the brake then starts when off....i can see wear on the front of the rotor and thats all....the front feels rougher than the back by a long shot like the pad is constantly engaged.....i took the car out and hit the breaks (60-10mph) a few times and it seemed to stop for now....could it be the above problem doing this....no other brake has this problem...any ideas.

We have a full shop on base so lifts and tools are not a issue just "helpers".

thanks

-ED

Re: two problems..believe one causes the other.

mustangs are bad about this. mine does the same thing. if it is that bad take the pads out and buy some squeal stopper and spray the back of the pads with it. it will usually fix the squeal. also if your rotors are grooved then i would get them machined

This..Also with parking brake make sure it is hooked up right. Nothing came loose, or a clip didn't come off. If remember right you can adjust it.

Re: two problems..believe one causes the other.

well you will want the brake hardware shims. those help stop the vibration. if you dont have the shims on

Was wondering where was see if close to me..Well people i know.


The clips are not. But I was worried about issue with parking brake, You should be able to adjust it. So when set it, it don't let the car move.

WHat kind of pads and rotors are you using? If reused stock rotors did you have them turned?

Re: two problems..believe one causes the other.

did you replace the slide pins and put high temp grease on them? if you didnt it will drag the brakes and cause them to burn

take the pins out of the caliper bracket. clean all the grease off of the pins. if they have rust on the pins clean it with a fine sandpaper or emery cloth. put the new high temp grease on the pins and slide them in and out of the bracket. should be a pretty smooth and free sliding movement. if it gets caught or hangs in a few spots then you will most likely need to replace those pins.

Re: two problems..believe one causes the other.

ok i will deff do this....could you explaiin why only the front pad(not the one on piston) is dragging and not both? you can clearly tell the reas not bby the way the rotors feels compared to the front side.

also why barely hitting the brakes make it stop?

i like to learn for future referance

Re: two problems..believe one causes the other.

the pads squeal when they are barely touching the rotor because of a slight vibration. when you apply just a small amout of pressure you are taking away any slack in the break pads and canceling the vibration. and the wear can happen on one side of the rotor faster than the other. this is usually a sign of seized components. like your pins not being able to slide freely in the bracket

Re: two problems..believe one causes the other.

1fafp42x6wf126866...or.....lfafp42x6wfl26866...i dunnop if l is a 1 or l....but there they are...

i believe i found the problem to the parking brake.....i took the center consol off today...and i took a look at the lever assembly....the pulley the the cable wraps around is split/bent down the middle were the two halfs connect and the cable get stuck in between the two halfs...i can push the cable out the grove and the brakes and tension on the lever are normal if i yank it and dont remove it it back out the brakes r locked and no tension on handle.

doesnt help much that the bolts connecting the lever are dry roting out and prob will rip out if i use the e-brake but regardless i believe the pulley issue is the problem and i'll just live without using the e-brake but once in a blue moon i guess...F^&# the ohio winters and there massive use of salt.

i'm getting her on the lift tom so i'll grease the slider pins and such and test her out.

Re: two problems..believe one causes the other.

Slider bolt was so rusted up that it took a hammer and a vice and lots of swings to even break her loose but after that got her out cleaned. Lubed and new boot and works like brand new

Thanks for all the help.....

caliper slides are bound up very commen problem on these cars.usually the right rear.you can get complete hardware kits from autozone around $10.reason outside pad dragging is from bound up caliper,piston retracts and pulls inside pad where it belongs,outer doesn't move. and drags rotor

don't put the anti-squeal on pads,only a crutch for wannabee tects,fix the problem and chamber the leading and trailing edge of pads free up caliper will fix all including e-brake adjusts itself every time you pull handle unless bound up

Uncalled for comment.

In the future, if you have a fix to an issue that you come across in an old thread, please create a new thread with the suggested solution.
