Need help with diagnosis

Asked by Mar 02, 2017 at 12:39 PM about the 2004 Ford F-150 STX 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2004 ford f 150..Right side brake caliper was hanging up and it burned the
brake pads up..Replaced the rotor and the caliper and pads and now i
have a pull to the right after doing the work.The caliper is free now and im
suspecting the wheel bearing.It makes a howling noise after you drive it for
a few miles.Cannot feel any play in the bearing but it seems to be the only
thing that would cause my problem.

Check the 4WD system, make sure it is totally out of the system, you should also check the front differential bearings.


Check left side brakes may not be working properly


check the opposite caliper to see if it's working.. it may not be holding
