Re: 1999 megane scenic rear brake discs help

A lot depends on the inspector.

I've taken a motor back with a new front bearing, he looked at the fail sheet, tugged the top of the wheel without even jacking up and passed it.
Another needed a brake flexy.
Replaced, took it back and the inspector ran a full check, suspension, brake test, even emissions.
Go figure

Yup, all things being equal and old disc giving good results, one new one should not unbalance.
But risking it is a different matter.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
