    Astra G Gsi Brake Pads question

    went to vaux to get some new pads for my 53 plate gsi and i was told they are no longer stocked so they gave me some other ones which they have been supplying instead which require new brake wear sensors.

    so i take the pads and the new sensors (another 20quid!) but when i came to fit them i noticed the pads are smaller than the other ones therefore not covering the hole of the disc.

    anyone else come accross this before? will this effect performance of the brakes atall?

    cheers

    Brought some pads for mine a few weeks ago for my coupe turbo (Same brakes as the GSi) from Vauxhalls for £40

    If your warning light came on to say they were worn then you need to replace the wires.

    If not they can be reused
