Caliper Piston seems to be ok,Believe it or not the Caliper has thrown A Pad out So My car os off the road now,Disc saveable, My Car does a Lot of stop/start drivig and s automatic butI didnt expect to see this after fiting "New" Calipers and Pads only back in March. The Inside Pad has been htrown,The inside Pad at the rear has ben thrown,The otherside i wearing to,But the outer ones(visible from through the alloy )seems to hve more life left inn it. I will have to enquire about Pads tomorrow,Is there or does anybody know of n Upgrade Brake Kit for 1999 3.8V6 models?
