    Hi David,

    No I hadn’t, was going to call ahead and thought maybe they’d order but sending to a PO would save some phone calls tomorrow AM. It’s basically something any workshop could do if I have the parts??

    Cheers it’s a v. good idea. I took a couple of pics today but with the scissor jack being so high I wasn’t hanging around “inspecting”.

    We had a date with some dinosaur footprints!

    2014 D4 - other thing I’ve thought of is rotors, with the front pads I was told to get rotors as well so old ones weren’t oversized. How important is that really? Eg if just change pads now and do rotors later?

    Judging by the second photo it seems like you have plenty of pad. Id suspect the dried clay has tensioned the cable and in turn forced the sensor’s raised section that is designed to wear against the rotor or damaged the cable itself. Whether you need new pads might be in debate the need for a new rear sensor is not. But you’ve had a look. Good to go on that evidence.

    Thanks for that, might be nothing then but we’ll get it looked at in Mt Isa Thursday / Friday.

    I did think it was strange that a pad swap wasn’t flagged at service and the wear light came on less than 24 hours after the hosing the clay off, everything had been fine in the 3-4 days drive up to Longreach since the Cunamulla rain.

    Going to order pads and sensor anyhow to the PO there, worse case we have the parts ready and waiting / peace of mind.

    If not they’ll be labour only on the post trip service.


    Meanwhile we’ll motor on... Brake pad sensor - how far can you go with it on?

    Apparently had 6mm left on the rear pads before we left and did the 3000km k’s up to NW Qld.

    Order through Pedders and have delivered to Pedders there. I've found their ceramic pads excellent. They also do rotors.
