Just tackled the front brake pads for the first time on a Rover. Things were going well, until I could not get one of the calipers around two new pads (drivers side). One of the caliper bolts was frozen and stripped, and I did not have the courage to take drastic measures to remove it. So, I opted to put one new brake pad in, and leave one old pad (about 50% wear left) until I figured out how to remove the caliper bolts entirely. My question: will this mismatched pair of pads destroy my rotors? I do plan on fixing it, just not for a couple of weeks. Thanks for your thoughts on this one....
