Installing New Rear Brake Pads
Service begins in our clean state-of-the-art Ford service department that employs certified technicians that understand the Ford braking system and its brake pad maintenance requirements professionally. Rest assured that we’ve performed countless rear brake pad replacements for vehicles just like yours. We will remove the worn rear brake pads, evaluate the other braking components, and install new genuine Ford OEM rear brake pads from our adjacent Ford parts department.
By considering these factors known to cause rapid brake pad wear, our customers can adjust their driving style as needed to preserve their brake pads:
Practice patience and drive with the flow of traffic to avoid heavy repeated braking
Allow your vehicle sufficient following distance for easy stopping
Remove unneeded weight to decrease cargo load
Towing heavy loads in stop-and-go traffic
The Ford Braking System
Rear brake pads are essential for the performance of a vehicle’s brakes; they represent the point of contact whereby friction and resistance occur to create the stopping power needed when you push the brake pedal. Located on the rear axle at the rear wheel locations, the rear brake pads create resistance against the rear rotor discs exactly as those in the front. However, the position on the rear axle produces a physics scenario whereby the front pads generally wear out at a different rate. It is for this reason that we provide an efficient rear brake pad replacement that takes care of the worn rear pads exclusively when the time is right.
