    Default rear brake pads

    Hi

    One of my rear pads is grinding, and when they changed the tyres they comented on how heavily they're worn so need to get them changed, Anyone know somewhere cheap and reputable in luton where i can get them done

    Cheers

    Is common for the rears to go before the fronts an 1.9td sri, just never owned a car where the back brakes have worn out before the front ones.

    fronts have probably been changed before , rears tend to last longer as they only do about 20% of the braking and the handbrake
