I'm after some advice from anyone with experience of working on the brakes on a Daewoo Korando.
I have very recently purchased a Daewoo Korando (1999 2.3 petrol). I am happy with it and it is in pretty good condition all round (Even though it is a bit thirsty on petrol) At least it gets me about on my permissions a heck of a lot better than my old VW Passat Estate used to.
One thing that I have noticed is that occasionally I get a "hot smell" which seems to be coming from the front brake discs (Mainly the near side one). On the few occasions that I notice this "hot smell" if I touch the brake discs the front ones seem to be a bit hotter than I would expect, especially the near side front one. This leads me to believe that the front brake pistons might be sticking now and then. I am planning on putting new brake pads on the front at the same time as I check and make sure that the piston are free.
I have changed brake pads on many different types of motors before but have never worked on a Korando before so is there any set way to go about changing the front pads and is there anything in particular that I should watch out for when doing the brakes on my Korando please?
I ought to add that I am also planning on putting new rear brake pads on in the relatively near future also so that I know I have brakes that can be relied on all round the vehicle so if there are any hints or tips regarding fitting new rear pads too I would appreciate them also.
Many thanks in advance/anticipation guys!
