Tarquini's been standing around a bit while I been looking for a new job and now his MOT has come up.

The tester noticed the rear discs are a bit rusty and said it wouldn't pass.

I put in new rear caliper pins on both calipers and then drove about a bit with a sack of cement in the boot.

That helped clean them up a bit but the rear discs still aren't as shiny as the front ones - a long way off it in fact.

Is there a way to push more brake effort onto the rear brakes, or what's the solution? Both rear calipers are behaving in a similar way, so I don't think that just one's knackered and the other isn't. Both discs are more or less cold after a drive, so there's not much happening back there when I brake.

If you drive fast you must stop fast.

Yes they are the front discs for a lot of the Fiats and I got them for £10 from my local Fiat dealer. Think he made a mistake with the price though.
If your not getting braking at the back, try adjusting the handbrake so it applies fully at 4 notches.

Well it was a toss up between nicking the discs off me missus' Uno (now sadly two foot shorter than it was last month, following an assault by an Astra van) or surfing over to the AO shoppie.

In the end the lure of groovy discs to match the fronts (Red Dot 6-grooves) was too much to resist so the ungrateful barst' has an early Christmas present on order.

Cheers dudes.
