Come along with Eric O. at the SMA shop as he rolls through the day and replaces the front disk brake pads and rotors on a 2013 Fords Escape Titanium. Now this is a pretty simple job to do but it would be best before you handle this yourself to make sure you have the proper tools, equipment and manual. As always be safe!

    Ever since having my 1985 bronco piston seize some miles after retracting it to replace the pads, I always open the bleeders before retracting the pistons to get the old fluid out and then flush new fluid from the reservoir down to completely change the fluid.

    Those pads looked like they still had a lot of meat.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark K says:

    Eric, this time last year I had to change my rotors and pads in the from of my Escape. I went with Brembo because that is what they sold at the place my son worked at. I got a super deal on them, or at least I thought. Over the course of the last year my brakes were getting worse and my front rotors were severely warped. I took off the front tires to find that these great Brembos (not), the pads were wore down to 2mm friction thickness and like I said earlier the rotors were warped. The place where I bought them from said that Brembo had some quality issues around that time and they did exchange everything for free. If OEM Ford ones were not so damn expensive I would have went that route. Well I have learned my lesson. Always go OEM.
