Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Ford brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to activate the parking brake of your Ford.
  • Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Ford brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected frequently for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your Ford maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Ford braking system together so it can function correctly.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Ford rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Ford brake pedals to function the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at all times.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and applies pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's extremely important to keep Ford brake pads fresh by replacing them as the undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Ford maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are many types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Coggin Ford find the best type of brake rotors for your Ford

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damages to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start warping them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from excessive heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

Should I replace all 4 rotors?

Typically you will need to do at least 2 rotors at a time. Usually, your Ford front rotors will wear and tear faster than the rear rotors, but this depends on a variety of different factors. Consult Coggin Ford Jacksonville for more information by dialing 9047478996 and ask for a multipoint inspection of your entire braking system. At Coggin Ford our Ford diagnostics are free during every visit.

Ford Front Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Wear and tear on your brakes depends greatly on your driving habits and the type of brake pads your Ford has, but usually front brakes wear out before rear breaks at 30,000 - 60,000 miles because they are typically under much less stress.

How much does a brake job cost?
