What tools do I need for front brakes?
What size of wrenches do I need to take of the caliper and rotor front
This is the first generation of the Ford Escape, a compact crossover SUV. Production started in 2000 for the 2001 model year.
It really depends which model you have and what year it is. Having checked multiple manuals, I would suggest that you at bare minimum have a:
15mm and/or an 18mm wrench for the caliper bracket bolts.
The guide bolts can be either a T40 or T45 Torx bit. It is also possible that you have Allen bolts for the guide, those can be 7mm and/or 9mm
You may also need a either 32mm or 34mm socket for the spindle nut, depending on your model. You may rent those from places like Autozone etc. You will of course also need the tools to remove your wheel. Personally, if you are inclined to perform further repairs by yourself, I'd suggest purchasing quality metric wrench and socket sets, instead of individual pieces. Hope this helps, good luck.
I was gonna get new guide pins from pep boys ( advance an autozone had to order them ) when I was there to get them the guy was trying to show me they were 7mm and hanging right there was 9mm Allen socket. Again advance and auto zone did not have it, nor sears lowes or Home Depot. The guide bolts looked cheap so I told him keep them now I found the 9mm and the ones on my car looked hardened. Did the brake job last night. New rotors and ceramic pads. Did not need to remove the spindle nut to replace the rotor. Just the caliper bracket. (18mm hex ). Bought the escape used 102000 and brakes looked recently done but stopping over 45 mph made the wheel and whole vehicle shake. After replacing with ceramic pads it fixed that problem. Looks like semi metallic were used. Ceramic are much better, quiter, lot less dust, and lasts twice to three times as long. Now that's done I got one more problem. Driver side seatbelt doesn't like to release. Saw a bunch of others have this problem too. Anyone know of a recall or an inexpensive way to handle this?
Working on mine today I had the same problem. 1 trip to lowes and one to advance auto to realize yes it is a 9mm Allen on the 06 Escape. I also found out they left the 9mm out of most of the sets and a lot places don't even carry it. That's gonna be tomorrow's fun, running around to find it. First stop will be sears ( craftsman ) hopefully does
FYI, Just did an R&R on the front rotors and pads on a 2007 Ford Escape ( FWD, front disc/rear drum ) . Caliper bracket bolts were 18mm and slide pins were 7mm hex. These were the original OEM rotors/pads @102K miles, needless to say, not a whole lot of meat on them!! Additionally the outer spring clips were the steal wire type vs the flat stamped version.
The rotors were a royal PITA to remove, lots of PB blaster and hammering. I cleaned and applied a minimal amount of anti seizure to the hub for the benefit of the next guy
