Scenic - Smoking rear brakes
Hopefully this is nothing for me to worry about, but I'll value your opinion.
Took my 2002 Scenic in for a service on Friday, and had almost £400 of work done on it.
One of my advisories was that my rear discs were worn, but still within limits. When I took the car in, I told them that there was a bit of a sqeak on the rear passenger side wheel.
When I collected the car, they said the disc was very slighty warped, but was ok. They warned me the sqeak was a little worse since they had cleaned the brakes in the service.
Been out in the car today, after already doing about 20 miles since Friday, and only travelled a couple of miles when there was a bad smell coming from the rear. On stopping, the same wheel was hot, and a little smoke coming from the brake. I had been doing around 60mph on a dual carriageway, the sqeak started, then slowed for a roundabout, which is when I first noticed the smell.
The 2 mile drive home was no trouble, with no smoke, no smell, and the wheel back a normal temperature.
Could this just be a result of having the car serviced?
