To save someone the aggrevation I went through. Seems that there are 2 part numbers for the front pads

xxxxx1210 for XLE without 3rd row seats

xxxxx1211 for XLE with 3rd row seats

I know what 3rd row seat. well the 1210 does not fit, they are too short. after some research a better way to choose would be by vin

J (japan) xxxxx1211
2 (Canada) xxxxx1210

Hope this helps

I ran into and posted this problem last year(2015) with our 2013LTD. bunkyg's post confirms that this parts number problem applies to multiple models. At least the LTD & XLE.

Seems that the non-dealer parts listing are a world view including models built for different markets with or without 3rd row seating. My advice for anyone in North America to buy the pads listed for 3rd row seating or buy both and return one. Pad replacement is straight forward and quite easy.

I've noticed on the specs for a few different brands I looked at that "pad wear sensors" were not included on the aftermarket pads. I don't know if the oem pads have them installed or not. Guess that's how they save a few pennies.
