Jack your truck up, take your tires off, and look at the brakes, you can usually see them. if not you need to take the piston housing off that pushes the brake pads against the rotor. another clue that your brake pads are worn is your brake fluid. if its low it usually means your pads are worn (the more you have to push on the brakes to get the pads to push on the rotor the more fluid is used)

How can you open the hood of a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer if the cable doesn't release the latch?

On my 97 mountaineer you cannot open the hood with the release inside the truck. Standing in front of the truck on the drivers side behind the grill the cable is located to pop the latch. Carefully pull out the bottom right side of the grill and you have to have a skinny arm reach in and pull downward on the cable itself this will pop the hood...
