Re: Clio II brake pads checking
Hi and welcome.
Your luck is in. This top post from Lagdti will show the before and after look.
You might have to take a wheel off for a good look.
If they have been done more than a week or two then the new ones won't look as clean as the pictures.
If the pads were worn by 80%, they would still be working to their full potential. Changing them doesn't necessarily improve performance. Infact, for a few miles they will be generally worse until the new pads bed into the discs.
How to change front discs and pads(with pics)
