Brake Pads replacement

Recommended Posts

Never checked the thickness of any discs to be honest but I have some digital calipers that I could use if needed. Cheapo Aldi ones that cost me around a tenner iirc.

That's what I use with a couple of washers either side of the disc to allow the calipers to clear the lip of the disc.

Nice idea.  Will try that.

 

Place the two washers between the calipers, press zero, then place washers either side of the disc and get an actual reading of the disc thickness.  There is just enough room to get a caliper in between the splasher shield and caliper/cradle etc.

Ahem, mine are below minimum thickness which ties in with 2000 miles to go on the pads.  Planned for a change in the next few weeks.
