Anybody have the size of the hex tool for the brake caliper guide bolts on the 2008 XLS?
Was on. The dealership said that they added fluid when they checked the brakes but that they said that the brake light comes on when the fluid drops which is usually when the break pads have worn down 80%. The thing is that when I checked the brakes a few weeks ago (about two weeks after the service visit) the brakes didn't look like they were down that far. Also, there was some sort of fluid on the brake flex line at the caliper on the Left front. If this was brake fluid, I think that they may have bled the line there because I cleaned this fluid off and it didn't come back in two weeks time. That area is now dry and dusty.jonas1022 said:Huh
Are you saying that your brake warning lamp is on?
I think that on my '03 Escape, I had about 30-35K before new front brakes and I replaced them mostly to get rid of the dust on the wheels. The back shoes were good even at 97K when I sold it. Although it could have used new front rotors.We have over 20K ( not sure how many, I seldom drive it) on our Tribute and the brakes are at 90% according to the tech that performed the safety check out.
