Rear pads
« on: 02 July 2019, 11:54:37 »

Rear brakes started horrible metal on metal noise today. I replaced the whole system 20k ago. I expected to get more out of them than that. There is some scoring on discs as I was on a long trip home. Will I get away with new pads only. Anyway I need the part number for pads. The search brings up two different numbers. Which is correct.  What is difference as they both appear to be same. 9192126n or 9195058. They are vented but I thought they were common. Many thanks

Pads are the same.  :y

Part number difference is Trade Club or Factory.

Readily available on eBay for about £10 for genuine Trade Club ;)

Indeed that is very low mileage from my experience. :o :o 

Bad driving (sorry!!), poor quality pads, or a mechanical fault / fitting error would/could be a reason for it. ;)

Piffle...

If you drive a 2.6/3.2 like a idiott, then the TC hammers the rear pads.

20k is more than I ever got out of the rears of any V6 Omega I've ever owned.  As Al says, the TC gives them a good thumping - look in the mirror whilst playing, and you can see the dust fly off them, esp on the MFL non vented, as you can overheat the pads on TC if being a complete womble - I did this once to see how it would react, and did about quarter of a mile fighting the TC.  Utterly wrecked the pads.

I guess TC is the reason they fitted vented, as even in fast road use, the non vented were more than up for the job if properly maintained.


Also, as stated by Al, genuine factory OE ones easily available on the gay of E for a tenner. Wrong fitting kit for a 2.6/3.2, but the pads are identical.

Now that is a good explanation TB that informs in a pleasant manner the facts :y

Shame that some can only rudely say "piffle" !!! ::) ::) ::)

I try to get on with the guy but really....... ::) ::)

You were expressing surprise that rear pads on a properly driven Omega only lasted 20k miles.

I merely expressed my view on why that was...

TB has obviously had two cups of tea in his bath today, as he is normally even more succinct than me ;D

Re: Rear pads update
« Reply #12 on: 02 July 2019, 21:52:47 »

Never thought brake pads would raise so much interest in the community.
I donít drive like an idiot.
Removed the pads now. They were mintex. Do we rate them. The outside pad was down to the backing. The inner has about 8 mm left but was detached from the backing. Both pistons moving freely. I guess I will go for originals. Any further thoughts welcomed especially with the humour. Thanks.
Ps those pins are well and truly fubbered.

Mintex pads are universally shite on the Omega. The pins being knackered really won't help as it could cause the pads to bind regardless of the pistons...

No one drives like an idiot. Ever.  ::) ;D On the Omega, every time the TC light flickers, the rear pads are being beaten to death.

Buy these... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-VAUXHALL-OMEGA-A-1994-2003-REAR-BRAKE-PADS-/263668154901 job jobbed  :y

Pins and springs are a different prospect, but part numbers here

Ignore the Mintex and Apec vented kits as they have been proven to be wrong ;)
