Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • What's the best way to break in new brake pads for a Ford Explorer?
    Answer: Breaking in newly installed brake pads is essential to seat the pads nicely within the system. The procedure allows the brake pads to deposit friction materials to the rotors for easy stopping on the road. To break in the pads, a driver should make five aggressive stops while the vehicle is at 40 mph down to 10 mph, followed by five moderate stops at 35 mph down to 5mph. Take note that the brakes should not lock or stop the vehicle completely. A burnt smell should be observed at this point. After the succession of stops, the vehicle may be driven normally.
  • Why do vehicles make a squealing sound whenever the brakes are applied?
    Answer: A grinding or squealing noise on a vehicle is usually an indication of brake pads problems. Worn out brake pads cause the caliper and brake disc to rub together, and that is where the grating noise comes from. The rotors ultimately become damaged because of the chafing motion between the caliper and brake disc. Replace exhausted brake pads right away to avoid damaging other parts of the vehicle's braking system.
  • How often should the brake disc and brake pads of a Ford vehicle be replaced?
    Answer: Brake disc and pad replacement depend on different variables: road conditions, driving habits, and quality of your Ford brake disc and pad kit. Most of the time, brake pads need replacement after 60,000 miles. However, vehicle owners should install new pads once they notice a grinding noise from the vehicle when the brakes are applied. Leaving the brake pads to be used up completely can do serious damage to a vehicle's braking system. They could damage the rotors and the brake disc, which will have to be replaced as well. Just like the pads, brake discs need to be replaced immediately once the first signs of damage are observed. Worn out or thin brake discs are not effective at all in making a vehicle stop. They need to be replaced right away to prevent accidents on the road.
