Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Yes it helps but the question was how much more life can I expect with just 3mm of meat left on them, according to the dealer.

3 - 6 - 12 months?

I know it depends on a bunch of stuff but just as a guide.

Also would I need to remove the wheel to check the pads?

When will I need new Brake Pads?

So looking at new brake pads soon, considering new slotted rotors at the same time, different topic on another threads. BUT the thing I need to know it how soon will I need them? At the last service a few weeks ago they said I had 5mm left (all round I assume) and at 2mm I'd need new pads and maybe ...

Re: Brake Rotor/Pads Recommendations?

Done about 14k on them now, including about 10k road trip interstate. Predictable is a good description. Had Kumho tyres before and I think these are just better. Braking is great avoided hitting an Emu near Broken Hill. I think they are quieter and handles better. Not pushed them to the limit but t...

Re: Brake Rotor/Pads Recommendations?

Had to stop suddenly today in the wet, less than 50kph but it was the first time in a long time the ABS has kicked in, that and the RE003s really worked for me today. Some idiot was trying to pass me where their lane was ending in a school zone, after 9am so I wasn't speeding. Why do Landrover 'spor...

Re: Lancer Convertible

Not a convertible kind of guy but it would have been nice to have a coupe and convertible option for the CJ!

Re: Next Service Warning Turned Off?

Not planning a road trip any great distance so unlikely to do another 15k within 12 months. Under the warranty agreement I have to do them every 15k or 12m which even occurs first. They even put the exact date not just month and 149,000km on the windscreen. Mind you they had 134k on there before thi...

Re: Next Service Warning Turned Off?

After watching some youtube videos and stuff I decided to give it another crack and it worked. This reminds me on setting an old VCR clock, or microwave without the instruction book! Basically I did this... - Ignition OFF and doors closed. - Find the service screen. - Press and hold the button 4 tim...

Re: Next Service Warning Turned Off?

Tried all that, didn't do anything. Each time I got the spanner flashing but when I quickly pressed the button again it just stop flashing and nothing had changed. It still says OFF on the right side of the spanner picture.

Re: Next Service Warning Turned Off?

Yeah normally you get the kays count down, I'll check this out...

All mine did was have the 'spanner' think start flashing when I held down the button, pressing it again and it stopped, could not get it to show anything else.

FYI this is an 09 VRX with an Outlander cluster.

Re: Your Perfect Ten Car Garage?

With a Koenigsegg I guess you'd be able to afford that. I was thinking of adding a Bugatti Chiron to my list, might look good next to the 76 Celica LOL

BTW my garage would be at my country estate.

Re: Your Perfect Ten Car Garage?

Nice you left some room to add to the garage!

With some of our choices you'd need a very good security system on a very big garage to keep them safe. Maybe a full time guard to watch over them?

Next Service Warning Turned Off?

One thing I noticed after I got my CJ back from its 150k service (135k on the odometer) was the next service info when you start up now just says 'OFF'.

Is this common and can it be turned back on?
