Evening!

Just a quickie!

As I pulled up on the drive tonight my pad warning icon came up. I'm booked in to get them replaced tomorrow night-is it safe (for me and the discs!) to drive the 20 miles to work with the amount of wear that triggers that warning?

Thanks people!

Cheers Mike. Figure I must have even 0.5mm left which should last that far. Should!

Depending on the mileage they may recommend changing the discs at the same time - modern friction materials wear the discs quite badly. Good luck!

I had a dirty feeling someone might say that! 50000 miles so hopefully have been done before.

If you're only just down to the wear indicator there's probably 1,000 miles or so left in the pads - not that I'd recommend waiting that long to replace them!

Managed to get pads, fluid and tracking done for 115. No discs needed. Happy with that!
