Brake pads worn out more on one side


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've noticed that both pads on drivers side are almost gone, while the other side has about 40% remaining.

Checked the calipers, are freely moving, there is plenty of grease on bolts, piston seals OK no leaks.

Car's braking behavior is quite normal and it doesn't pull to one side. So what could be the problem?

If the car definately doesnt pull to one side under braking then you can pretty much rule out seized or sticking caliper slides or pistons and uneven line pressure from the master cylinder. The only possible thing left (though highly unlikely) is a dodgy set of pads.
