Worn Rear Brake Pads.
1 1

1 post in this topic

I took my car (2016 Kadjar 1.6 dci dynamique S Nav 4WD) for a service at Renault Cardiff last week, and was told that the rear brake pads are down to 8mm and 5mm.   The car is only 2 years old, with 14500 miles.    I don't understand how the rear pads can wear this badly in 2 years, as I would have expected the front pads to wear quicker (10mm each).   

I been in touch with Renault Customer Relations, who have contacted the garage, and told me that the brakes are fine and don't need to be replaced yet (even though they gave me a price for replacement, £133), and they just need to be checked again in November (which the garage didn't tell me). 

I did have my car serviced at the same dealer last year, and the brakes were fine.  Since that last service, I've only done 3,500 miles.

Surely the rear pads shouldn't wear quicker than the front, and if they are the pads are either substandard, or there's an issue with the system.

Has anyone else had problems with rear pads ?  And what did you do about it ?
