The minimum brake pad thickness specified by Dacia is 7.5mm.hi mike, ive had the car exactly one year on the 11th of this month and car has done 11k miles only. the dealer said my pads are now 10mm thick and the wear limit is 7.5 which seems a lot of brakepad to chuck away. ill check with dacia uk as something isn't right here.
Brake pads are not as good as they used to be, You are lucky to get 25K out of them. and many things can shorten the life of low quality pads.Ness car that yr old and needs brake pads already that out order plus only 11k mils that would mean resting ur foot on brake all the time would have been diff if been 35k mils on car
Your nephew certainly will not rip you off like a stealer will....many thanks again nessi and when pads do need changing I wont be paying 118 pounds no way. my nephew has his own car repair bussines so ill get him to pop them in.
A little 'off topic' but !The minimum brake pad thickness specified by Dacia is 7.5mm.
There has been many threads on the Original pads wearing quick ( they must be too soft )
Dealers do charge around £100 fitted for replacements...
Some people have bought sets for under £20 ( dealer charges £50 a set ) and fitted them themselves or got a independent garage to fit them.
Search the forum you will find lots of threads on this topic....
If memory serves me correct Phill48 & Roger have both posted links to good quality pads.
Personally I would pay the couple of quid extra to get the better quality EBC ones, In the past I have found that you do not get so much brake dust coming from them.A little 'off topic' but !
For a dCi Stepway :-
These are good value pads :- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/301889217317?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2661&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
These are quality pads but a bit dearer:- EBC Ultimax OE Replacement Front Brake Pads ( Pair ) - DPX2146
