Re: Rear Brake Pads/ Discs in 59 reg Scenic

just like to clarify regarding bedding in.

Brake pads and discs, even new need bedding in still and your procedure is a good method of doing it.


there is a difference between bedding in flat pads on flat disc, than bedding in flat pads on uneven surfaced discs.

if the surface isn't flat, especially if partially scored it takes a very long time for the pad to wear to the shape of that surface because you have lots of little ridges along the surface that maybe up to 0.5mm deep.
