Did you bench bleed the master before putting it on and then bleed all four others after? Are the pads in good shape? Any visible leaks?
#14 of 20 constant abs brakes
Mar 31, 2008 (5:44 am)
this is for a 2000 sable with 75000 miles. i had the car in the garage a while back having the abs system checked out, for which i was told every thing checked out. my problem is the abs system goes on almost all the time now when applying the brakes or if i run over a small bump when braking. the rotors and pads are in good shape. do the abs brake sensors go bad? or is it something else?

have changed front rotor and calibers on front and now brakes are sticking and getting real hot whats the problem on my 1996 ford taurus,,,,,help

I have replaced rotors and pads on my wife's '99 Taurus Wagon and seem to have a problem with the outer pad on the driver side. Once the car gets up to about 25 mph the pad starts to whine. At first I had the metallic pad in there with a metal shim, it makes a horrible sound. I replaced it with a ceramic pad with a nitrile rubber coated shim, the noise is less but is still there. I have taken the brake assembly off several times and checked the pads, slides, springs, everything seems to look good but i just can't get away from that darn whining. I have the same setup in my '98 Taurus and have no problems there at all ......... any suggestions?
#18 of 20 93 Sable parking brake release cable

Does anyone know how to disconnect the old parking brake release plastic housing from the dash? The new one looks like it is held in with a clip but you can hardly see it behind the dash much less get a pair of needle nose in there.

#20 of 20 Pulsating Brakes in 2000 Sable
Oct 26, 2010 (1:26 pm)
I have a 2000 Sable station wagon. When I apply the brakes, the 1st few times in the morning, the pedal pulsates a few time & then I hear an electric motor going. After a few times of doing this, it goes away. We've replaced the pads on the rear & put a new caliper on. The front pads were replaced in Feb. Does anyone have anyone idea what it is or what's causing it?
