This is a warranty issue! Insist that your dealer deals with it, not you. I have recently had a third set (Original fit plus one previous change) of rear discs fitted due to out rim corrosion and although I do a lot of motorway miles, I am firm on the brakes when I need to be,

Hi Chris
I will be arguing for the work to be done on warranty but just in case I get nowhere with the dealer the brakes need done now as there is virtually no pad wear left!

Hi Haggis
I've argued till im blue in the face with JLR and Taggarts, getting nowhere at the moment but sticking at it, some woman called Sid at JLR told myself and Taggarts they would replace the discs then done a u turn and said they never said it!!
By that point Taggarts had already told me they would get done, then phoned next day to also u turn!!
I've been told by JLR to go to ombudsman now, seems strange to advise this but I'll give it a go,
Happy days😡

Hi all
Just an update on the warranty issues. I have picked up the Disco all all issues have been sorted without any discussion. Yes even the back brakes...new discs and pads fitted.
Can't fault Edinburgh LR. They get a big thumbs up from me 👍

Or you could spend £150 on an iCarsoft diagnostic device that claims it will do it all for you, and re-calibrate the caliper to the new pads. If you don't do that it may apply too much pressure and stick, or wear out prematurely.

I’ve done 21000 miles and brake wear warning is on. Looks like rear pads. I didn’t expect the warranty to cover what I considered wear and tear. So I didn’t even bother asking and at £25 for a set of Mintex pads (my preferred choice) and £12 for the wear sensor I thought it easier and less time consuming to do myself without that much expense. 21000 is not that unusual when the car does a lot of short journeys and is left outside all the time. So discs corrode and corrosion causes more pad wear. Some may think 21000 miles a bit low, but while plenty of cars will do more, many will also be similar mileage under the same conditions.
I was looking out how to disable the EPB while changing the pads. The tip about leaving the car in neutral with EPB off is a good one and easy. I’m just off to try it now!
I’ll report back how it goes....

I just changed the pads. Leaving the engine running in N and EPB off got annoying as the exhaust was too close to where I was working. The alternative I used was to turn off the EPB and then disconnect the plug to the EPB motor. Then it can’t come back on! Then turned off engine. Had to remove EPB motor in order to wind back the spindle on the back of the caliper piston in order to push back in the piston. Easy enough. I’ll eventually post a video to help others.
