Research on Brakes for Ford Ranger
Your brakes are one of the most important parts of your vehicle, but it may surprise you to know that many car owners take it for granted and seldom maintain them regularly. The braking system has various important components that function together to keep you safe on the road, including brake pads, rotors, calipers, etc. They need to be well taken care of to ensure that your vehicle can slow down or stop whenever you need it to without any problems.
Signs of Failing Brakes
There are quite a few signs or symptoms that indicate that you have failing brakes. Knowing these signs is important as it allows you to determine when you need to take your car to a mechanic for an inspection and get your Ford Ranger brake pads and rotors, or other parts, replaced.
Grinding or Squealing Noises from the Brakes: This symptom is usually an indication that your brake pads are glazed or worn. The wear indicators make the squealing noise, which contacts the brake rotor when the brake pads get so worn that they need to be replaced. This is one time you should get your brakes checked. Many people wait until they hear the grinding noise, which means that the brakes have ground into the rotors through the wear indicators. If you hear your brakes squealing, get them checked. If you wait for the grinding noise, you will have expensive repairs to bear.
Pulsating Brake Pedals: This condition is mostly caused by heat and wear. When your Ford Ranger brake rotors or drums get thinned out due to heat and mechanical wear, it leads to warping. When this warping occurs, it translates into brake pedal pulsation when the brakes are applied. In this case, you will probably need to re-machine or replace them. You should make sure that a mechanic checks your brakes for wear if there is any pulsation as it is more than likely that they are worn beyond repair and need to be replaced.
Ford Ranger Recall for Parking Brake Issues
Ford recalled certain 2010 Ranger vehicles equipped with manual transmission. It was possible that the parking brake cable could disconnect from the right actuator in the rear during cold weather. This could occur when the parking brake was released if wet parking brake shoes froze in the applied position. If the right rear parking cable got disconnected, it would cause the pedal to have extended travel and may not apply the parking brake fully.
When a manual transmission vehicle is parked in neutral without applying the parking brake fully, it may cause unintended movement and possibly lead to crash. Dealers installed a revised right rear parking brake actuator to prevent the cable from disconnecting in affected vehicles without charging the car owners.
Cost of Replacing Ford Ranger Brake Pads
If you need a Ford Ranger brake pad replacement, it will cost you an average between $162 and $271. For labor, it will cost you between $123 and $156 while parts will cost you between $39 and $115. You can get an estimate that is specifically personalized based on your car and the area you live - fees and taxes excluded.
