Hey All,

I was driving home from work yesterday and my "brake pads worn" warning appeared in the dash. My 2013 RRS HSE Lux has 24,200 miles now, but I bought it with 16,200 miles. The previous owner drove it like a sports car, but I don't. I was wondering if anyone knows how many miles until metal on metal contact? I will call Land Rover and an Indy shop tomorrow for a cost estimate.

Thanks all,

Gerry

It all depends what pads the PO put on it, but if you have the warning then one of the two sensors has already been worn through.

Thanks, I will visually inspect the pads then. I'll let you know how much pad is left.

Front: 3/16 of and inch

Rear: 1/4 of an inch

Probably just use her today, then park until replacement parts come in.

Thank for your help.

I'd say that is still a fair bit of pad. Just guessing but that sounds like about 25% of original. Probably good for another few days.

"Most brake pads are equipped with sensors built in to the brake pad material. When a brake pad that's 12 mm thick new wears to approximately 3 mm of pad life remaining, the metal sensor usually becomes exposed and makes contact with the disc."
