4.2 Brakes...

PostPosted by jase hutch » Mon Jan 23, 2017 8:57 pm

My Rav had been parked up for several weeks as I didn't need to use it with all the crap on the roads.
Anyway, last Friday night I needed it and when I moved it off the driveway I had the usual surface rust that usually clears after several applications of the brakes, however this time it wouldn't clear and turned into an unbearable rotational thud every time the pedal was pressed......seemingly coming from the front nearside.
I've ordered up a set of Pagid discs, pads and a set of new clips along with a tube of Ceratec grease, so that's Saturday morning sorted, weather permitted

I personally wouldn’t bother unless I found a fault with them or the rubber boots - you can always pop a new set in quite quickly after. Use Ceratec grease for the pads and the pins - it won’t harm rubber parts.
