Re: Rear discs corroded

All modern cars discs wear disproportionately. I've experienced on Mercs, BMW and Porche. Best advice is to run until the pad wear warning light comes on and replace discs and pads at the same time.

Likewise I use a cheapo (freeby) USB Stick download from my PC then plug into the centre console - works perfectly every time!

Re: Happiness turns to Sadness

Yep call Jaguar assist - you should still be fully covered under the warranty. Do NOT however opt for the AA but insist on the Jaguar specialist engineer!

Re: To buy or not to buy (end of 3 years)

Hi Guy, In answer to your "The F-Pace has been a great car to date, but how have people found them to hold up with more mileage? Disc currently look ok as I really don't drive very far most of the time." Mine is just over 3 years old, has done 45,000 trouble free miles and I'm still delighted with i...

Re: Rear Brake Pad Wear

Mine is a MY17 and have just replaced Discs and Pads for first time after 45,000 mls so your wear rate appears abnormal. Could have been influenced by lack of miles causing corrosion/pitting of Discs resulting in very heavy wear of Pads. Its maybe the old story that the worst thing you can do to a c...

Re: Aftermarket brake pads and discs

Great job NooNoo. I'm afraid I wimped out after I heard the problems you had with the Disc holding screw. I had similar issues many years ago and ended up breaking the screw and having to drill it out so decided to book my car to my local aftermarket garage. He completed the job in 4 hours and charg...

Re: Brake Wear Sensors

Thanks for the response Big Jon. A few Q's:-
Did a warning appear on your Dash? Was it an easy job replacing the pads and did you replace the disks at the same time?

Brake Wear Sensors

I have a 2017 F-Pace which has done 45,000 mls and I'm starting to get a bit of wear on my front disks. My previous XF's were fitted with wear indicators which flashed up on the dash when the pads were needing replaced. I have checked the F-Pace manual and can't find any reference to such indicators...
