Front disk pads
« on: June 07, 2018, 07:59:02 PM »
Just thought I'd give you guys a heads up. I was thinking my front calipers needed a service as after being stood for a few weeks the front break would stick.
Turns out the pads had split and separated  the breaking pad from the metal bracket it was on. So a slice of pad with rust allover the side that split was floating around and could have eventually jammed. So frantically phoning everywhere I managed to get some new brake pads and replaced them.
Remember to iv only just done over 4000 miles in nearly five years so it's not wear and tear really.
Just check your pads if it seems a little sticky or seizes the front wheel after not being used for a while. Even the guy who helped me said he's never seen that before.

I ran my o/e front pads very quickly. I suspect they're not the best quality  :003:
