PhinHater Posted January 15, 2009 Share Posted January 15, 2009 I have a 2001 VW Jetta Wolfsburg 1.8T Got the brakes replaced 1 year ago exactly. At that time the car had 106k miles on it. For the rear, this is what got replaced: Rear Brake Pads, Rear Rotors, Right Rear Caliper. Now I have 126k miles on it, 18k more than last January. Yesterday I started hearing a grinding noise out of my rear brakes. Once in a while it will not grind. Strange. I know that 18k miles is not enough time to wear the brakes down. I checked out the brake pads and they don't seem to be paper thin. They aren't as thick as a new one would be though. Any thoughts on this? I am going to bring it to my mechanic tomorrow morning. Am I able to drive on it tonight and tomorrow morning? Thanks car gurus. Help is appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
