For as much good as they are. They put the sensors on one side of the pads and it's normally the side that don't wear, so necessitates new discs. I've had that happen to so many LRs that it's getting monotinous.

First post on here. This trail was helpful so thought I'd ask for others views if that's okay. LR suggested to me 8 weeks ago that the brake discs needed replacing and warranty would cover the cost. It was booked in for today - last night the service consultant called to say their in-house warranty team had mentioned that the replacement might not be covered by warranty as it could be wear and tear due to my 'high mileage' (DS registered March 2015 and mileage 41k). They confirmed today they felt the replacement was wear and tear. I challenged them today and showed them the Technical Bulletin. I needed to call JLR customer relations and raise a complaint. Are LR playing silly buggers or would others expect to replace brake discs after 41k (most travel is 150 mainly motorway miles at the start of the week and 150 back home at the end of the week)? Thanks

Hi Pad70,

I assume you are referring to the rears?

My cars a 15MY also I had mine replaced under warranty recently at 48k miles.

I wouldn’t expect to replace DS pads and discs so soon. Ask them if it’s wear a tear Why the wear indicators haven’t activated also, ask them to confirm how many mms are left on your existing pads.

My rear brakes are going rusty has occurred to others on here

However, my front brakes are also giving a bit of concern. They are not nice and shiny bare metal colour like all my other car brakes, but very dark. I am concerned that they may be blueing with over heating. I will take a thermometer out with me next time I take the out and see how hot they get.

My normal journeys are a 20 mile commute each way to work, the first mile or two being back county roads, the rest motorway. I am not heavy on the brakes, my work journeys being before rush hour when the motorway is clear, so no need to really brake. The car shows me having a good record on the driving styles thing on the Eco info page.


Does anybody have anything to add about the pictures. I will be taking the car to a dealers when I get a chance next week.

Don't like the top picture much, all that scoring on the pad contact area is not right. Discs look OK otherwise.

How many miles have you done? I assume top pic is the shagged rears, and bottom pic is one of the fronts? If so, the Front looks fine to me from the pic - maybe not as shiny as you'd like, but nothing that would worry me.

Rears look scored , that shouldn't happen.
Fronts do look a different colour , but hard to tell in a picture, temp check after a normal run is a good idea.

Thanks for the replies, you're correct, the top picture is the rear brake and the lower one the front. My car has done 6300 miles. I'll try and get a better picture, but may have to get one of the wife's mini so we can compare and contrast colour, obviously same expose , angles etc.

After more than 25 years of driving I can't say I've ever had a disc that looks the same colour as my fronts, they are normally bare shiney steel colour , apart from my Volvo 480 which had a sticky rear calliper and went a lovely red colour.
