While we were changing the pads and rotors on the Edge yesterday, we found something interesting. 

 

First, let me fill you in on the details.  A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that the Edge was sounding like an El Train in Chicago when I hit the brakes.  Inside, I heard the sound of metal on metal.  The noise was coming from the passenger side rear.  When we changed the rotor, I saw where the inside looked like it was scored pretty badly. Then, I got to look at the pad and noticed that a sizable chunk of pad had sheared off which led to the metal on metal contact.

 

I am wondering what would have caused part of the pad to shear off.

Had that happen on my old F150.  They were good pads too, Raybestos Pro Grade stuff.  Sometimes it just happens I guess.

My guess would be a rock of something hard got stuck between the pad and rotor.

Of course, I can get a hell of a good look at a T-Bone steak by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take the butcher's word for it.

 

+3 on the rock, debris, etc.

Nope.  They were Duralast (AutoZone)

 

I can believe that about rocks/debris.  Especially since I had to replace a windshield recently.

Unfortunately, No.  

 

However, the new brakes have finally bedded and I am much happier with the performance.
