    Default Caliper

    I had both rear calipers replaced a year ago due to them seizing.

    I have had to replace my pads twice within that time as the offside pads always wear down quick.

    Is it the piston coming out more than it should that causes this and should it be happening on a 1 year old caliper

    Thanks

    The inside rear pad will always wear more quickly than the outside one; as long as you aren't having to replace the pads after relatively low miles, it's the same on most Vectras.
