Any ideas guys?
Had to have new front discs and pads for mot back in july 2010, which my garage fitted (standard items).
After a bedding in period of fairly gentle braking they were working nicely.
Then while on my way home one night quite late I was driving, shall we say, in a spirited manner which incuded a couple of quite big stops the brakes started to smell quite alot and
the pad wear indicator light
came on so it went back to the garage who said nothing to worry about just a bad connection in the wiring and that they will smell hot if used hard.
Anyway a week or so later was doing the same late night trip as before and again on comes the pad wear indicator light, the garage again said it was
down to a bad connection and managed to get it to go off.....can you see where this is going????
So now having been back and forth a few times I have the following, when driving along the pad wear indicator light flickers and the faster you go
the faster it flickers and when I brake it is on solidly, foot off the brake and it goes back to flickering and now to add insult to injury after I have been driving for a while ie when
everything is nicely up to temp they squeal constantly.
Sorry for the lengthy drawn out post and any help/ideas gratefully received.
