Car: Honda Accord 2007 SE, 47000km
Recently I heard a chirping noise as I was moving the car; yeah, must be the wear indicator from one of the braking pads. I have to mention the braking pads were the originals, never change them, although I always inspected them when I rotate the tires.
I bought new pad for both front and rear and set to work. I started with the rear wheels since looking through the wheels, the rear pads seem to be worn out.
On the passenger’s side the outer pad was completely gone while the inner pad with the wear indicator had some 2.5 - 3 mm left so the wear indicator was intact.
Same story on the rear driver’s side but there ~ 1mm outer pad and ~ 3mm inner pad and also wear indicator wasn’t touching the disc.
The caliper pins were ok, still moving although they needed some greasing.
By comparison the front pads are still good, about 3-4 mm till U-channel would be gone (the one at the middle of the pad).
Is this normal? Does rear pad wear out more quickly the front ones? What about the uneven wear of the inner/outer rear pads?
