Rear Pads, EBC Greenstuff, MX5 Mk1 1.8

[DP21003]

£53.16 inc Vat

by Nigel Doffman Date Added: Thursday 04 June, 2009
I bought both front and rear EBC greenstuff pads. I fitted the front pads in no time at all, but the rear pads were another story. The problem is that with the pistons of the rear calipers fully retracted using the allen key, you can't fit these pads in, ie the thickness of the pad is greater than the distance between the piston and the caliper body. They were 1-2mm too thick. What I had to do was to file down the edges of the rear pads - there was a lip all round the edge. Secondly I had to remove one of the shims so I could fit them into the gap.

The quality control on these pads is somewhat lacking - EBC need to get their act together!
