    Rear brake disc wear

    My front discs look fine but one of my rear discs doesn't. Am attaching photos of both rear discs so can see the difference. Car hasn't been driven for 5 days so few surface spots on the decent disc.

    Any ideas why the poor disc is the way it is please? Faulty caliper?Click image for larger version.

    You need to check the calipers are working correctly and not sticking. Do you have the stupid electric handbrake?

    I've don't a quick check on ETKA for new OEM discs they are from 50, Search the motor factors.

    Thanks Keithuk.

    Yes, got electric handbrake. I actually like it.

    If this was your car, would you be replacing the disc?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
