    Does anyone know if the 2005 2.4 Executive has am indicator that comes up in the dash when the pads are low?

    Also, the car sailed through the last MOT in January at a Honda main dealer with no advisories and although the pads are ok, they are a little low. But the discs have a fair sized lip on them which I thought would be picked up?

    I'm pondering whether or not to change the pads and discs or should I wait a while and not throw money away too soon!


    Cheers!

    Nope there is no onbaord wear indicator for the brakes, it is still a visual inspection.

    Will do, I think I spotted that DIY post earlier where there's step-by-step photos - just the stuff I need as I don't think there's a Haynes manual?

    Hit a terrible pothole today and I think my wheel balancing is now out as it's vibrating between 60-170 and it better not be buckled as I went through enough crap with my last car and buckled wheels. May even get the tracking checked as I don't know when it was last done.

    Roads are terrible. Grrrr


    Cheers!
