Basic but Essential Care Tips for the Ford Explorer Brake Disc and Pad Kit

The Ford Explorer is the Blue Oval's bid in the mid-size sports utility vehicle category. It provides a smooth and comfortable ride for trips without sacrificing exemplary performance. Truly, it almost seems like a vehicle sent from heaven for the American family. You can use it for short trips like errands to the grocery, visit to your local diner, and longer drives like vacations to the countryside and camping adventures up in the woods. While you may be confident with how your vehicle performs all throughout, you still need to ensure that every single component is working with precision. This goes for the Ford Explorer brake disc and pad kit as well. This set enables you to handle your SUV well whether in traffic or when you are busy carving through the canyons. Here are some basic but essential care tips to help your brake components have a longer and effective lifespan.

  • Be a smooth operator so that you lessen the potential stress that your brakes have to counter.

Driving smoothly and defensively goes a long way in terms of caring for your car parts. This also positively affects the condition of your brake components. When you reduce the unwanted stress that results from jackrabbit starts and drag racer accelerations, you not only prolong the lifespan of your engine, you do the same for your brakes as well. Since the main purpose of the brakes is to stop your wheels from spinning, they take the most toll from such actions. Brakes work based on the principle of friction. Lesser engine power to counter means happier brake components. Also note that engine braking can help you do the job. Don't forget these things.

  • Never ever wet your brakes when you just got off a drive.

You should never ever wet your brakes if you just got off a drive. Because of the friction caused by braking throughout your trip, your components are heated up. Even after you parked your SUV, the heat does not go away immediately. If you wet them, you risk warping and breaking your brake discs.

Symptoms to Watch Out When Diagnosing the Ford Explorer Brake Disc and Pad Kit

Remember the time when you first drove your Ford Explorer right out of the dealership? It felt great, didn't it? The engine hummed perfectly as the flawless transmission shifted through gears. The brakes had the right bite too when you had to use them in turns and full stops. But as you continue to use your Explorer through the years, its performance loses a bit of its appeal and capabilities despite your best efforts to maintain it. Don't sweat it. These things are normal when you own and use a vehicle regularly. Constant use wears out parts and make your vehicle perform a little sloppy compared to how it was when it was brand new. So when your Explorer has already clocked a significant number of miles and years, then you should start to be on the lookout for red flags already. Here are some symptoms to watch out when diagnosing the Ford Explorer brake disc and pad kit. When you find about these things, don't wait too long until you lose your SUV's ability to stop on time. It is a big safety risk.

Weird steering vibrations whenever you apply your brakes.

When you drive on a smooth road, there shouldn't be any excess vibrations that can be felt on your steering wheel. After all, the Explorer is equipped with power steering for optimum ease in handling your large SUV. However, when vibrations become apparent as you apply your brakes, then there is a possibility that something is wrong with your brake components. You might want to look at the mechanisms involving the clamping function of your calipers.

Your Explorer comes to a full stop as if it were equipped with front drum brakes.

One of the things that make disc brakes more appealing in modern vehicles is its ability to make more precise stops. It should be able to stop your vehicle without compromising the direction it is headed to. However, you should be on watch if your disc brakes start to react like drum brakes. When your vehicle veers to the right or left without you steering, it might be a sign that one of your calipers is stuck with your brake disc.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the best way to break in new brake pads for a Ford Explorer?

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?

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?

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.
