    BRAKE SERVICE PROCEDURES FOR 1999 Ford Contour AUTOMOBILES

    Disc Brakes -> Front Disc Brakes -> Troubleshooting -> Abnormal Conditions -> Brake Booster Operation Test -> Brake Master Cylinder -> Brake Roughness -> Bypass Condition Inspection -> Lateral Runout -> Non-Pressure Leaks -> Normal Conditions -> Thickness Variation -> Wheel Bearing Looseness
    Vehicle: 1999 Ford Contour 2.0 L4 BI-FUEL

    Brake Roughness

    Thickness Variation

    If roughness or vibration is encountered during highway operation or if pedal pumping is experienced at low speeds, the disc may have excessive thickness variation. Measure the disc at 12 points with a micrometer at a radius approximately one inch from edge of disc. If thickness measurements vary by more than .0005 inch, replace the disc.

    Lateral Runout

    Excessive lateral runout of braking disc may cause a "knocking back" of the pistons, possibly creating increased pedal travel and vibration when brakes are applied.

    Wheel Bearing Looseness

    Adjust the w...
