Brakes problem
1992 Volvo 940 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 159000 miles

i got 1 brake pad on my sons car that is worn down. The right rear outside pad.I replaced both rear rotors and pads last year. Did I do something wrong?Or did something happen afterwards?I have been changing brakes on my own cars since 1984, but this is the first non-american car that I worked on.
