Thanks again Gents

John, no need to pop the lever in the boot I too was quite surprised the discs showed no serious damage due to the brakes binding & I had to use a small hammer and a screwdriver to get the pads out of the calipers due to all the cr@p that had built up around them. Funny thing is though, every time I washed the car I gave the rear brakes a bloomin' good blast with the jet wash. I thought that should've got rid of all the cr@p. Obviously not eh ! I reckon as there was no copaslip used when the car was built, this was the root cause of the pads seizing.

Thanks Leroy.

Damian, I'll check the receipt tomorrow and let you know. I did get a discount though, as I know the storeman


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
