TSB 06-22-17 REAR BRAKE DRAG, NOISE, DUST, AND/OR PREMATURE PAD WEAR

Publication Date: October 31, 2006

FORD: 2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
MERCURY: 2005-2007 Montego


This article supersedes TSB 05-4-7 to update the Parts, Service Procedure and vehicle model year coverage.

ISSUE:
Some 2005-2007 Freestyle (front wheel drive only), Five Hundred, and Montego vehicles may exhibit rear brake drag brake noise, excessive brake dust, and/or premature pad wear on one or both wheels after being parked for an extended period of time.

ACTION:
Replace the rear brake pads with revised parts following a revised a service procedure in the online Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 206-04.

NOTE: THE REAR LEFT HAND CALIPER PISTON TURNS CLOCKWISE TO MOVE THE PISTON BACK INTO THE CALIPER AND THE RIGHT HAND CALIPER PISTON TURNS COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO MOVE THE PISTON BACK INTO THE CALIPER. USING THE SPECIAL TOOL 206-026 (T87P-2588-A), COMPRESS THE BRAKE CALIPER PISTON INTO ITS CYLINDER. WHILE ROTATING THE PISTON IN THE APPROPRIATE DIRECTION, A MODERATE TO HEAVY FORCE AGAINST THE PISTON MUST ALSO BE USED. IF SUFFICIENT FORCE IS NOT APPLIED, THE INTERNAL PARK BRAKE MECHANISM CLUTCH CONE WILL NOT ENGAGE AND THE PISTON WILL JUST TURN AND NOT GO IN. IF NECESSARY, USE BRAKE TOOL, OTC 7317A OR EQUIVALENT, TO APPLY ADDITIONAL FORCE WHILE TURNING. .



Tip: If the piston is unintentionally rotated in the wrong direction and the internal threads lose contact, the piston can be screwed back into the cylinder. If the piston boot seal loses contact around the piston, replace the caliper because contamination may have entered. It may take a couple full turns before the threads engage. Be sure that the piston is aligned with the cylinder and a force toward the piston is applied while rotating.

NOTE: IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO MACHINE THE REAR ROTORS USING THE ROTUNDA ON-CAR BRAKE LATHE UNLESS ROTOR RUNOUT AND/OR RUST ARE EXCESSIVE. MACHINE THE REAR BRAKE DISCS IF THE DIAGNOSIS HAS REVEALED REAR THUMPING OR GRINDING NOISE WHILE BRAKING. HEAVILY SCORED BRAKE DISCS, SIMILAR TO THAT CAUSED BY PADS WORN DOWN TO THE BACKING PLATE, SHOULD ALSO BE MACHINED. IN ORDER TO MACHINE, DISCS MUST BE ABOVE THE MINIMUM THICKNESS TO MACHINE SPECIFICATION. REFER TO WSM, SECTION 206-00 FOR DISC MACHINING INFORMATION.
