    A guide to replacing the rear pads and discs (272 mm) on a Mk. 3 Leon with independent rear suspension: The only difficult bit about this job is removing the caliper carrier bolts. The factory tightening spec is 66 ft/lbs plus 90 degrees which is very tight indeed. If the fasteners are rusty...

  5. 2012 leon fr handbrake issue!

    Hi all! I've recently replaced a OSR calliper on my leon for being siezed. I replaced the rear discs and pads also! However since I noticed the handbrake did not feel great and had a bit too much travel. Seems to be binding (working harder) on the OSR. I checked the adjustment mechanism to...

    After my recent service I was advised that my rear discs were slightly warped. Been noticing it more now especially slowing down from 60/70mph. Was wondering if anyone on here has changed the rear discs and pads on the MK3 leon? Is it simple enough? Cheers Andy

    Brakes, Clutch & Hydraulics

    Evening Folks, Looking for some help.. From time to time, the car feels like the rear calipers are not releasing fully causing it to feel sluggish. When this happens, the handbrake also feels like it has somewhat less resistance when pulled. Coincidentally, when this happens, the clutch pedal...

    Hi, Has anyone else got a new SEAT Ibiza FR with issues with the brakes, maybe not being as sharp as you’d hoped or just the breaks not being there all together:blink:? Or any problems with the brake master cylinder ? Thanks, Megan
  13. Corrosion on front brake discs

    I've had a Seat Ateca for just over a year (registered April 2017) and noticed a juddering when braking. My local garage had a look and said there was some rust on the discs so I took it to the dealer who confirmed this. I said that this should not have happened after only 15,000 miles so they...

  19. Rubbish brakes

    Ok done a search, and none really match my problem. Not had the car long, it came with TT brakes. The discs and pads where badly needing changed so i put the rubbish brakes down to this. Brand new discs and pads all round still rubbish! They feel not bad when braking from high speed, but...
