Brakes: Abs Warning Light, Grinding Noise
Posted 26 February 2013 - 07:15 PM
My ABS warning light came on a couple days ago. Its still on. I haven't tested the ABS but today when I braked to stop on a downhill the car's dipped sharply and I heard a grinding noise and felt it through the pedal.

yes the pads are worn out... change them asap or you could have to replace the disks as well... do not drive it

Ok, the brake pads are fine (not even halfway worn). And the grinding/screeching noise happened on a bumpy uphill yesterday when no brakes were being applied. And the car feels like its floating around on its axles, and when you steer it takes a while to respond... what could this be???

Thanks Stef and Bruce. Will have that looked at. Is it something I could replace myself?

A broken drop link is more a DIY job than a spring although both are straight forward enough with the correct tools.
Without inspection we are clutching at straws

Took it in and once up on the lift we spotted the right rear wheel was loose! Wheel bearing f'd. Replaced that and now all good. ABS light also off. Thanks for the feedback though, without this forum I may not have deemed it serious enough to have checked out this promptly and the wheel could have come off! And this forum would've had one less member. In essence Ford Owners Club saved my life.
