    Default Vectra Rear Brakes!

    Hi

    Vectra
    2007

    Within the last few days i've had a problem with what seemed to be the passenger side rear brakes. So took it to Kwik fit this morning to get a free brake check. They found the passenger rear side inner brake pad had completly worn away but the outer pad was perfect.

    They said the pad, disc and calliper would all need to be replaced. This would all cost around £400! The cars still under warranty, but I can't see them fixing this under warranty? The problem has come along within days and needs to be sorted quick.

    I'm wondering how I should approach this

    Any advice is appreciated!

    Thanks

    I am not sure if it is covered under the warrenty. But it does sound like the piston/caliper is faulty. Best to go along to you local VX dealer and have a word with them, after all you have nothing to loose.
