If I can induce brake fade between Horsham and Crawley, it comes as no surprise that he changes his pads every month ;D

I did that one with a 1700kg trailer with (as I later discovered) no brakes in July. ::)

The banjo front brake washers from Vauxhall. Can they be fitted anyway round?

The reason I ask is that I seen a you tube video once but can't find it now that stated they should be fitted a certain way round.

Thanks

And that's why I use LM on my sliders. And (proper) coppaslip on pad backings.

Across MK, if you try reasonably hard, you can exceed the limits of fresh, new DOT4.  200+ bhp, 1800kgs plus driver, small pads,  and if your unlucky, a need to come to a standstill every half a mile is hard on the brakes.

From memory the handbook quotes a kerb weight for the F/L 3L Elite saloon as something like 1780lbs[could be slightly off on that figure]out of a 2200lb ton.Being pedantic 1800kgs is 1.8tonnes[not tons] :P ;D

Brings back memories of my mate's kit car when we were on our way to Ireland. From caliper stuck on a little, and got a tad warm, then the bearing grease melted, dripped out of the hub and melted the tyre sidewall on its way down. All from a triumph dolloposhite 1500 engine, and he didn't notice the drag until the bearing seized.
