For a 95 Ford Windstar the brakes went and the front brakes have been changed with new pads and rotors - Back brakes were adjusted and there are still no brakes - what else to do to fix it?

what you have could be one of three problems. Check your reservoir to see if it has plenty of brake fluid, bleed your brakes,they may of lost the fluid while changing brakes. Also, if you have a vacuum leak it will cause your brakes not to work. Or it could be your master cylinder or your vacuum booster that has went bad. brewski

What could cause a 'ping' sound when stepping on the brakes of a 1996 Ford Windstar?

Well I seem to have a similar situation.. I would say your 'ping' is a bit of a 'sprong' on my 95 Windstar. Further the brake pedal seems to bind, makes the sound and not engage the brakes.. I can apply more pressure and pass through the bind to engage the brakes or with some pumping of the pedal the binding dissipates and the brakes engage properly.. I was wondering if this is similar to your situation? Unfortunately I do not have the answer; I am on the 'net today looking for information! Should I find any info pf value I will post here.. Regards, Styx

Why do my brakes vibrate so bad when I stop on my 1997 Volvo 850?

Vibrating brakes are almost always a symptom of worn rotors. When the rotor wears down, or has grooves, the brake pad can no longer make a flush connection with the rotor. This will cause the caliper (which holds the brake pad) to move in and out as it tries to establish a flush connection with the rotor. The rapid movement of the caliper is what causes your brake pedal to vibrate.

How do you change the front drum brakes on a ford wind-star mini van?

The front brakes on the Windstar are disc brakes. The rear brakes are drum type. You need to know exactly which parts need to be changed and why. If it is just the pads its pretty easy to do. But if the rotors are bad too, you will need to remove the calipers to access them then re-install the calipers with new pads. If you are not sure what you are doing seek advice from a mechanic
