    Default brake pads

    Hi

    Was driving last night and when i braked it made a grinding noise at the back

    but it doesnt have all the time.

    shouldnt the brake warning light come on when the REAR pads are worn out?

    cheers

    No front brake pads only
    Visual inspection required for rear brake pads
    Typical replacement interval is about 30K to 40K miles

    From memory the rear brake pads are a NIGHTMARE, and you will require a special tool to complete this
    You may find that your local VX dealership have a strange cheaper fixed price of about £60, which includes parts and fitting, but sadly that price does not apply to my 3.0 V6 CDTI!

    I had warped disced on my vectra after 6 months of fitting, take your car back as you are covered for this for 12 months of fitting.

    If you buy the parts from Vauxhall, it's cheaper to buy the discs and pads together, than it it to buy the discs and pads separately.

    As for changing, it's mentioned in the How2 section. http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=15092
