  1. Front Brakes Binding (Help)

    To be honest I don't know! This is the first set of pads on the car, at 43000, they mentioned the possibly the discs. I am taking it to another garage to get a second opinion, and see what they say, to be honest if they need replacing then so be it, it would be a no brainer not to change all in one go.

    Thanks Tony, I am asking because it seems really strange that in a space of 10hrs a problem arises, I'm gonna change the pads anyway as it really makes sense as they are vital piece of the car.
  3. Front Brakes Binding (Help)

    Hi Tony I thought it might be that! at first, so had them check it out, they put it on the jack and the back ones spin loosely whilst the front ones run a lot tighter and slow really quickly. .
  4. HI all I took my car into Rates (Grays) yesterday 6/9/13 for its annual service and was told the front discs need replacing and the pads were 80 - 90% worn. The issue is now the car feels as if its towing a anchor, which was not the problem before it went in, I took it back and the technican said its becase the pads are so worn that there now sticky, I personally think they have done something? as they were fine before they touched the car. Does anyone know if I am being feed aload of waffle? or can this happen? PS. I know they have touched the braking system as the hand brake is now back to full lock on 3 notches.
