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

the discs and pads are still well inside operating specs.
did they flag the disc wear due to an outer edge ridge ?
if its higher than 1mm then they might complain about it.

you can get that ground down by most garages for a few pennys (a lot less than the full costs of new pads and discs)

that should get you through to at least the next mot if not longer.

if your only pootleing about then you wont get the pads hot enough to wear them down with lots of hard braking which is why they have lasted well.

if you unsure about the brake function, then ask a mot station to do a free safety check for you between thier regular booked mot sessions, most wil be happy to oblige.
