Re: Scenic II front brake pad replacement

The wear on the pads shows you have worn / rusty discs. If taken to a garage, they would insist on replacing both as a pair.
If you put new pads on those discs, the new pads will be inefficient until they are worn away just as the existing ones are & the car will pull to one side when braking. Also you will waste pad life too.
Is it worth 35 more to do it right ?
