Brake Pad Wear Indicators

Hi Folks,

I'm a total newb with cars so please don't flame me!

I'm still on my first set of brake pads that came with the car (~108,000 km/~67,000 miles).

I don't brake hard so I guess that's why they lasted so long.

Any how, I haven't hears any squealing yet but I do know they are quite thin.

Does anyone know if they come with a wear indicator?

Also what's the part number for the Motocraft brake pads?

Thank you in advance.

Lucky you, mine didnt last half as long as yours did.
Mine all failed(all 4 wheels) in the same day on my OEM set.

No, they do not. Neither do the replacements.
Change them.

If you know they're thin, change them before they start eating your rotors. Check Amazon's price as well on the Motorcrafts.

So literally my brake pads were worn out and I was stopping on metal which warped my rotors. Had to replace all four pads and rotors. $680 for all four tax in.

$680?!?!? Did you have a dealership do it??? Could have got all OEM parts and done it yourself for about $260 plus shipping from Rock Auto. Cheaper than that even, if you went aftermarket

Why wouldn't you check the brakes when doing your tire rotations? Just a quick peek is all thats needed....
