    Icon4 206 brakes; Pads & Discs?

    My mechanic just called and said I need my rear brakes replaced and that the discs and pads need to be done at the same time on 206's.

    Is this correct?

    If not, machine the discs, (depends on how badly scored they are). But the general rule is the pads and discs need to be beded at the same time, this works alot better when the disc surface is not glazed or scored, hence either the machining or new discs.
    Anothe alternative is to sand paper the disc surface, a trick that was tought by my fellow racers... - Chris

    Personally, I think it is only correct if the discs are worn beyond there minimum thickness.

    Whether or not it is true in this particular case, making blanket statements like "the pads and discs must be changed at the same time on 206s" always sets of alarm bells in my head.

    Don't forget its the rear pads and discs... without measuring or looking at it, its hard to say. - Chris

    Have the fronts ever been done? If not then I would question why the backs would go before the fronts. Discs don't necessarily need doing at the same time. If you trust your mechanic take his advice , if not get a second opinion.

    I agree Simon. Unless you have a good relationship with whomever looks after/services your car then I wouldn't be to keen to throw my money at them.

    Well seems that the discs are undersized.... my own fault for not gettin service done on car when it was due as last mechanic said the pads would need changing.

    What a waste of money....

    Whoops.

    Ah well, rear discs aren't that expensive in the scheme of things.

    306s and 206s have the same rear brakes. they have a naugty habbit of wearn out 1 outta 4 pads prematurely. just a crap design. most the time people will complain of a noise comn from the rear when braking cos the pad has worn out and is running on the backing plate of the pad which is METAL but keep driving! metal eats metal.thats probly why u need discs too.stop,take to a mechanic. plus the pad material is only 6-7mm thick new. doesnt take long too get through.
