I managed to remove my caliper (seemed very tight to get off) and checked my pads (see attached pictures).
After looking at pictures of new pads on the internet, i think they still have plenty left on them. Can anyone confirm this by the pics?
From my car's documentation, it looks like they were replaced around 10,000 miles ago.
Do the pads needs replacing or do you think its more of a caliper issue? I've got a feeling the piston might have seized up a bit. I've degreased it anyway and lubricated it with some copper based lubricant, but only time will tell if this has worked.
Sorry if i'm sounding a complete noob, but no-one has ever taught me about mechanics apart from this site! many thanks if you can help!
