    2012 Edge Brakes going to floor

    Bb56 you have the wrong guy. I never said my calibers needed replaced. I have a scanner and have no codes. thanks for your help dean

    2012 Edge Brakes going to floor

    bb56 Thanks for all that great info. When I did the brakes I made sure the slots in piston were aligned. This just suddenly happen. I would thing if that was the issue this would have happen along time ago. And I always use my parking brake (e brake). when I was bleeding my brakes I my rotors looked clean, if I remember correctly. I am going to do the drive test first and if there is a difference in temperature from front to back I will pull the back tires and put it on jacks and pull the calibers and make sure everything is working correctly. I really appreciate all your in site. Hopefully I can get to the bottom of this. By the way. I did try the driving backwards and braking hard and no noticeable difference, but I did not try it with my parking brake. I will give that it another shot also. Dean UPDATE - Just went out and did the braking backwards and using parking brake. May have firmed up some. Checked the rotors. Front was hotter then back. Then driving back home i rode the brakes for a while and then checked. Both front and back were about equal as far as hot to the touch.

    Dd56 thanks for the great explanation. My rear brake pads are pretty much new, less then 10k on them. But when i had the tires off and had someone put on the brakes i did not see any movement and no gaps between pads, caliber piston and rotor. Everything looked tight. I assumed it was because the pads are new. I did the brakes myself and i believe i lubed everything property. But maybe i need to reinspect them. By the way a fast brake or double pump does make the brake pedal stay high and brake hard. So maybe that is because the backs are not engaging making the front end dive when i brake, like maybe it is only the front brakes engaging. How can i confirm the rear are not engaging? Should i see the caliber me at all with new pads? Maybe i need to touch them when someone brakes to feel if they are engaging. I just had to waste more time. They worked fine and suddenly stop. Don't get that dean .

    The e brake works but is not super tight. I did not know you could manually adjust the e brake cable on the edge but i will look into it. An update on power bleed. I thought it did not help at first but it did firm them up slightly where as they still go to low to floor, but are more firm as they go down. The bleeder did not push Fluid very fast and i contacted motive the manufacture and he suggested applying slight pressure on brake pedal, so i may try that. Im thinking maybe with such low pressure maybe it was not enough to get all the air out from all the Crevices in brake components. I was using 20 psi per instructions dean
  5. The push rod on a 20** edges are not adjustable.

    BB56 & Mikeyhd Well I tried to bleed with a power bleeder and it made no difference. I basically pushed new fluid in but did not help tighten up my brakes. Still go to the floor. I tried removing the ABS fuses and it made no difference either. I checked calibers to make sure they are putting pressure on brake pads and there is no gaps. I have no idea what to do now. I have loved my edge, but I am so disappointed in ford at this point. I have never had so much problems with any newer car EVER. Any other suggestions? Dean

    Thanks BB56 & Mikeyhd. I will check the caliber and if all good will likely get a power bleeder. I have the auto bleed scanner that is supposed to bleed the hmu into lines and then you bleed the lines. But I suppose having it under pressure would be even better. Thanks Dean

    H Mike Thanks for the reply. The first time it happen I was just driving on a normal road with normal dry conditions braking for a turn. No ABS even. The bleeding has been all manual other then the auto bleed using my scanner. After using the auto bleeder it makes them even worse, which makes me think it is bleeding air out of the HCU. After changing out master cylinder I introduced a lot of air into the system. I think the system is firmer and I believe the master cylinder replacement may have solved the original . I read that it can take 8 to 10 bleeding sequences to get all the air from the HCU and lines. I am going to do another 8 manual and auto bleeds. I am thinking I still have air in the HCU and need to do additional bleeding of that unit with the Auto system followed by manual bleed of each line at wheels. Do you think pressure bleeding would be more effective? I am hoping this will help. Will keep you posted. Dean
  9. Here is my story. Brake Booster replaced about 4 yrs ago under warranty. Brakes went out again a few months ago and took to ford. They said booster pump again. I did not want to pay 1100.00 so i did it myself. Brake still go do floor. Replaced Booster Vacuum Line & Check Valve and no change. Just changed the Master Cylinder and did auto bleed and manually bleed brakes 3 times. Tried the driving backwards bit, they may have firmed them up some. If there is any difference it is hardly noticeable but they do seem to be a little firmer as they go to the floor to stop. What the hell do I do now? I don't know where else to turn and Ford can kiss my ass. Thank you for your help Dean
