Might be worth checking the disk thickness with the specs as pads end to be made of harder materials these days so often the 2 need changing. Be a shame to need to change the disk next year.

There is a very good article on this site explaining how to do it. You will need a special wind back tool for the calliper to change the pads &, if you do change the disks, the hub nut requires a torque beyond most diy wrenches.

Pads weren't expensive as I recall.
Thanks for the reply. They are just going to get it done.
