Re: Rear brake pad replacement problem Help

Depends how they were winding back
They often need pushing at the same time
There is a special tool to do this and while I would expect the garage to have one, did they use it?
If so, chances are the auto adjust mechanism is FUBAR and you need new callipers
Best to change the pair and recon/exchange are cost effective
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
