  2. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    I did a complete set of brakes on the 5 door so here are the guides. The rear caliper was 'interesting' in that the RH one turned opposite to expected/instructed so I supposed be wary of the official advice out there.

    I had car checked out by a non ford garage a few days ago, have noise from rear, anyway wheel bearing gone on passenger side and brakes pads were checked as well. It was pointed out that the pads on one wheel, rear on drivers side were a lot thinner than on passenger side. I am thinking of...

    Hi All, Anyone got any idea what size brake pads I need for the front of my Ford Mondeo 2002 Estate? I've put my details into Eurocarparts and it's coming up with 3 different sizes (width and height - does the thickness matter?). I'm going outside now to see if I can measure but incase I get...

  8. Transmission / Drivetrain (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi all, So after a short journey i could smell a burning smell, i got out and found the rear wheel (brake disk) was very hot. I assumed the pads were sticking a bit and might need to change the pads and take a look at the callipers maybe the handbrake cable but on the next journey the back...
  9. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    I saw a video which says that you have to align the cut out notch on the piston (used to rewind it) with the small notch on the back of the brake pad when refitting. Is this the case? I don't see anything about aligning the piston a certain way with the brake pads on the wiki ford how to guide???
