Rear Brake Pads Worn After 41K
Posted 06 June 2004 - 06:47 PM
Front pads must have another 30-40K left in them.
These are the original pads on my 2001 Forester.
Unusual for the rears to wear first??, and so much faster than the fronts?? I've never seen that before.
I assume there is a proportioning valve of some sort, front to rear, but not sure how that works, expecially in an ABS setup. Is it adjustable?
All help and comments are appreciated.
Thanks in adavance.

I changed my pads at 45000 miles (2000 legacy) and they still had several grands life left in both front and rear. My wear is higher than usual becouse of mostly city driving and some towing.
True, front pads work harder ("do most of the braking" as said above) but they are bigger and the net wear is similar (at least in my car).
You either have binding in the rear, or brake force adjustment mechanism malfunctions. Probably the first, becouse you would notice braking anomalies by now. Is your acceleration poor, rear wheels hotter than front?
Could this explain the FWD fuse results you reported?
