Default Weekend Project!

It's time!

First brakes on the Mini since I bought it. I think I may have let it go a little long since I'm getting a scraping sound from the back when cold. If I have to get new rotors, so be it!

Nice What rotors are you going with?

I've got to do mine soon - will be first time for me too have heard the rotors can be a pain to remove. Would like to hear how it goes for you.

I was just going to toss them on the stock rotors. I stopped needing super-nice brakes some years ago, but I figured since I need pads I may as well get nice ones.

If I get warping, I'll pick up new rotors too. I doubt I need slotted rotors on a daily driver, so I'd probably just go with good quality solid rotors.

Ok, got the pads in, and bedded them in as per Hawk's instructions. The only problem is that the pedal is now a lot softer than stock. I didn't crack any lines, so it shouldn't be air in the system. Any ideas?

go back and make sure everything is torqued. Check fluid level. If it stays he same bleed anyway.

Thanks. As it turned out, the pedal firmness came back after a few days. Everything's kosher now.
