    Default Rear brakes,parts missing??

    I recently changed my rear pads and have noticed that they are not hitting the disc fully.

    remembering back to previous car,i remember there being a friction plate on the back of the pads which you reuse.There wasnt any on my vec so are these plates missing or just not there in the first place?

    Thanks

    No friction plates with the Vec, as they went out with the Ark. There are two common causes of this problem: either the pads have yet to bed in, which will take longer if there is a lip on the disk which will keep the edge of the pad away from the disk until the pad wears down; or the pad is a cheapo one that is machined badly and isn't fully flat. If the problem is still there after a few hundred miles, then it's probably a bad pad.
