    Default rear brakes

    right was driving the car today and a grinding noise appeared from rear passenger wheel

    basically sounds like there is no pad left

    so i am assuming the disk is knackered as well

    now shouldnt the pads wear at the same rate?

    are disks and pads covered by the network q extended warranty?

    the car is a 57 plate cdti sri?

    check the pad, it could just be it's getting low, some pads have a bit on them that makes a noise to let you know they are getting low. you'll only need a disc if you can see a groove in them or they are lipped.

    Not sure about the warranty, front and rear pads do not wear at the same rate but both rear should.

    Although if you have a dodgy disc it would wear the pads on that side more!

    Siezed caliper? I had a similar problem a couple of months ago - looked fine from outside, but the inner part of the caliper was siezed and the inner pad was down to metal. New discs, pads and a caliper required.........

    Brakes are covered on my Network Q but you need to check. You may also find it's only the pads why not call them hth ...............
