Brake pad contact

Post by AlexT99 »


Check out the above post. Can someone who knows about brake pads shed some light. Anyone seen them looking L shaped with a small face that makes contact with the disc and a larger face which is off the disc.

Note: despite the rust and scoring, these discs and pads haven't even seen 200 miles. They've just been sat there for 15 months rusting.

They were not making full contact from brand new though. I was going to take the car back but 2 days after getting them fitted I had a seizure so lost my licence.
