63K+ miles and the rear brake pads looked very thin...
Rotors were grooved also on all 4 wheels.
But the front pads were barely worn at all.
Prices on rear replacement pads weren't bad. $64
But the parts store rotors price were high. $72 a rotor and out of stock.
Since the rotor didn't look too worn.. I thought cutting them would be the way to go.
Interesting with the new Electric E Brakes.
There is a service mode procedure to wind the E tension back into the caliber.
Reverse procedure with the Brake Pedal to undo the service mode.
Look it up on You tube for step by step.
Disassembly was e z.
But noticed many pit holes in the back side of the rotor.
Changing rotor would be mandatory now.
Called a 2nd parts store. Same chain and part #...... $34 a rotor..... SOLD.
Wire tension clips on caliber is a PITA to put back in. Not awful though.
And there is no squealing clip on the original pads to let you know they are worn.
Since the rear rotors were so pitted. I will probably do the fronts soon. Pads look perfect, But they will go too.
Front rotors are lightly grooved also and I'm guessing they are pitted also on the inside.
Maybe 1 hour total.
