    Default Brake Pads

    I went up a kerb a little too fast the other day and since then, my warning for the brake pads has come on.... what's the easiest way of checking how much is left on them? There isn't a big gap in my wheels so i'm guessing i'll have to take them off.

    I believe the warning comes on when they get down to 3mm ?

    I've had the car 10 months and done 12,000 miles... how long should pads usually last?

    No idea about checking them, I'm not mechanically minded! but i do know that when i upgraded mine, after 16500 miles, there was loads and loads of wear left on the pads and discs.

    I wouldn't be suprised if you've dislodged the sensor wire or something during your little manouevre?

    I was in a rush to get home to attend to nature and threw it up a kerb a little too fast. (If i leave it all on the road.. nobody can get down the road). I assumed it was something to do with a sensor but i've no idea how to check the sensors.. Are the pads black? I could see some white thing very close to the disc.. not sure if that was the pad.. if it was.. it's got about 10mm left on it.
