Re: Clio mark 3 - brake discs worn before pads after 26000 miles?

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your quick reply.

I thought exactly that, pads should outlast the discs, its interesting that it should be 3:1.

I was not told by Renault that the discs were warped or gouged in any way when I had my service. the measurements were as followed, clearly indicating more wear of the discs than pads:

front discs (mm): 20.45 (19.8 min)
rear discs (mm): 7.61 (7.5 min)
front pads (mm): 11.3 (8 min)
rear pads (mm):14.84 (7 min)

This was in September, in December the independent garage also told me that the rear discs have corrosion.

I already rang Renault customer service, they want an inspection of the brake's done (which I have to pay) but were fairly clear that discs are usually excluded from my warranty. However, I feel that this might be a manufacturing problem and should be covered.

It would be interesting to know if anyone else ever had a similar problem in this forum?

Thanks a lot.
