break pads

Hi I'm new to this forum and need some help. I have an Alfa 147 sport which in for its 36k service (57 plate). They are saying that the break pads are gone or need cleaning and stripping, which is causing my streering wheel to judder everytime i press on the breaks.

Not sure my pads and disks should have gone at 36k. can anyone help me with this as finding the service at this place not good at all. its sooooooooo frustrating some one please help!!!

Re: break pads

It does sound like the brake discs may be warped if they're shuddering under braking.
