Brake pad ?


Recommended Posts


Yes you should be find providing you dont plan on driving to Lapland and back! They are a guidance and designde to warn you that they are low but not dangerously low to give you enough time to replace etc.

As for getting them they are pricey! I have been lucky in the past and got genuine pads for not a lot of money off ebay so cant comment on any aftermarket items. It is not a massive job to replace them yourself if you are pretty handy with a spanner!

Good luck and hope this helps!

I think I need to do mine soon - do I need any special tools. It's been a while since I've changed brake pads. Do I need a 7mm allen key?

Are there any pads that would be better than OEM - I wouldn't mind changing discs and / or pads if they would improve the braking. Hate squeeky brakes so I wouldn't want high performance if it meant squeeking & squeeling.

My pad warning light was on for 3 months.

After which - it become metal against metal. So you're probably good for another 6-8K miles! 169144-ok.gif
