Re: Question about Scenic 2005 (54 Plate) brakes
Hi Lagdti, thanks for your reply.
There are wear ridges around the outer edge of the disc, but the rest of it looks ok.
I undid the reservoir cap, and pushed the pistons back very slowly.
Is this normal when putting on new pads? I know they need to bed in, but I was just concerned that the pedal faded when the engine was running, and was ok when the engine was stopped.
I would have thought if there was a leak of fluid somewhere, that the pedal fade would have been the same whether the engine was running or not.
As I say, the brakes certainly stop the car.
I have told my son in law to drive easy until they bed in, and to check the fluid level for any sign of loss.
