Re: Unusual brake pad wear

It's either the disc too small or the pads too wide.
Would think the discs at fault. Don't think you would get the caliper together if the pads were wrong.
Looks like it needs a full kit again.
Brake pads should never overhang the discs

Is there room for a bigger disc to fit in the caliper mounting bracket.???

The rears might be locking up if the fronts aren't working at full power or the ABS reluctor rings on the driveshafts could be shot.
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.
