Disc pads

On a recent trip to Peugeot Darlington for the recall on the sliding door catch, they signalled an advisory on the disc pads being down to 6mm. I would have thought that the disc pads wouldnt be much more than that as new and that 6mm is a heck of a lot! Does anybody know if there are disc pad warning sensors and at what sort of thickness they kick in if they are present
Thanks
Barry

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

The minimum thickness of pad material to pass the MOT is 1.5mm. I believe that pads when new are 10 - 12mm thick and wear indicators kick in about 3mm. In my opinion your 6mm ones have quite a bit of life left in them.
GMJ and GMJ like this.

6mm is plenty, suggest they are just looking to inject some of your cash into their revenue stream, fairly shabby customer service in my view.
