I need another option please. Do I get them to change the pads?
I am about to purchase this car and my mechanic who did the third party check on the car has recommended that the front brake pads get replaced including the discs before purchasing. He says these will need changing before 5,000 kms
My mechanic has recommended the following.
FRONT BRAKE PADS
FBD FRONT BRAKE DISC ROTORS
BF BRAKE FLUID
Removed old brake fluid and replaced with new brake fluid. Pressure or vacuum bled each caliper and/or wheel cylinders by opening each bleed nipple one at a time until new brake fluid with no air bubbles is visible
Discs below minimum specifications. Removed pads,
caliper carrier and discs. Cleaned hubs and new disc rotors. Refit caliper carrier. Lubricated new brake pads and refit new brake pads. Test drove to bed brake pads to discs
the dealership has come back and said the pads do not need changing and have attached the following photos.
What do you think?
I am about to pay $12,000 for this car with only three months warranty. I am trading in a car (lemon) I brought from these guys a year ago for $8,900.00 which they are trading for $6,500.00. This previous car has been a nightmare since purchasing from oil leak to new battery to now what I think has always been the care, I suspect a gear box issue.
Anyway, lets say I do not trust them but they have said they will change the brakes if I can prove they need doing. Hence why I am asking you?
If you cannot see the image, the readings of the brakes I believe are.
Thank you so much for your time and thoughts.
have the same problem?
