Bill F Nice to see you have posted same thing 3 times.. Are you sure the Brake "Pads" are pitted??? Very hard to see the pads unless off the car.

Susiej Hi. I canít believe rake pads on 18k mileage disco should be so pitted. It only does long journeys with little brake use. All my other makes of cars have lasted between 35k and 60 k before replacement. Are jlr brake pads fit for purpose

discosteve Found this page looking for info on replacing my brakes - perhaps someone who has done it before can help. I have replaced brakes on cars many times so no concerns. The question I had is around the torque values for various bolts. One document I found lists the torque value for the bolts that attach the brake caliper mounting plate to be 200 Nm. AND it says you have to replace these bolts every time you do a brake job. Does this sound right? Did anyone else who has done a brake job replace these?

Thanks.

Ttrs Update: Getting the electronic sequence to get EPB to maintenance mode just doesn’t work mine for some reason. But I was still able to change the rear brake pads following method used by Audi/VW with EPB shown all over YouTube. Basically follow the method I used above to disable automatic EPB to prevent activation while working on it. Then, unbolted the EPB from the caliper. Manually rewind the EPB, compress the piston back with a caliper tool. Don’t use c-clamp. Change pads. Very easy, works well. Zero error codes.

Ttrs Hi! Anybody have instructions how to set the EPB to service mode? I tried one from the evoque but couldn’t make it to work (where it’ll show that it’s in service mode). But I found an instruction how to disable the automatic EPB, where it says:

Turn engine on. Switch knob/gear in “N” neutral. Turn off engine.

Press start without/brake pedal just to turn ignition on. Then press/hold brake pedal and press down EPB to release parking brake. Release brake pedal.

Next, press/hold down EPB.
Then press start/stop while continuing to hold EPB for 5 secs.
Release EPB.

That procedure seems to work to release it from Park brake but is it sufficient for service?

red64chevelle Same here. I replaced mine at 20k miles or 32k kilometers.

My other cars (non-Land Rover) have always gone 40,000+ before pads are needed.

I want to make sure this is normal, and not the dealership trying to gouge me for $800.

Any help, much appreciated!
just had mine done last week. The rear ones. 35000km and my dealer said I was in the range for it.

JClarke Yeah no warning as yet unless the warning is "service required", in which case thats from an oil change that I haven't reset yet out of laziness lol. But I do have the parts on hand and ready to do the work when time permits.
