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)
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
