Driver Advice - PLEASE READ
DRIVE WITH CAUTION after installing to allow pads and/or discs to 'bed-in' for the first 300 miles. During bed-in brakes may be less effective until components 'seat' correctly. Drive with caution until full brake efficiency is observed. Over-heavy use during the bed-in period may cause surface carbonisation and produce black dusting.
BRAKE PADS should be inspected for wear every 3000 miles as varying load and use conditions can greatly influence pad wear rates. Badly worn or totally worn brake pads can cause partial or total loss of brake and may result in an accident. Some products may last longer than or even less miles than other types of brake pad when used in the same conditions. Pads should be changed when friction material thickness reaches 1/8th inch (3mm). Do not fit used 'anti-rattle' shims with new pads and do please clean discs of any deposits from old pads.
BRAKE DISCS . When fitting or refitting discs (rotors) at any time it is vital that the mating surfaces of disc and hub are scrupulously clean. The tiniest speck of rust, swarf, or dirt may cause run out and judder after 2-3000 miles. Similarly securing bolts/nuts should be torqued correctly and equally to vehicle manufacturers specification. Caliper pistons should always be checked for equal performance/movement. Sticking pistons are sure to cause distortion. The fitted disc should be checked for perimeter run-out by dial gauge or similar. Maximum acceptable run-out on a disc is 2/1000ths of an inch (0.05mm). All discs are carefully boxed and each box carries detailed fitting instructions and checking procedures. PLEASE READ.
ALWAYS USE NEW PADS ON NEW DISCS
