    Default Fortuner 2.8 GD6 rear brakes

    Hi
    I have been having issues with my rear brakes wearing off very quickly and unevenly as well as my disc's have been getting damaged and needed to change them.

    I replaced them privately and at a reputable repair company.

    Has anyone experienced similar issues and any advice going forward.

    Thanks in advance and kind regards.

    Shabeer not on a Fortuner but a 76 V8 Cruiser. There were some long discussions on disc wear. Some well known 4x4 Guru now staying in Australia made video on the subject. He reckoned that mud and dirt find its way between the pads and discs causing the uneven wear an damage.

    In my humble opinion damage is caused by the brake pads Toyota are using. Would be interesting to monitor your results as you used non Toyota spares.

    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    I am currently on 40,000 km with my Fortuner.

    So far no issues with the brakes. When they measured during the 40,000 services the front had 8 mm left and the rear had 6 mm left. Not sure what the original thicknesses were? If they were the same the rear then wears faster?

    Would be interesting to know.

    I generally try to avoid water/mud.

    Took a look at all the discs and pads when I replaced my FT's tyres at 60k km, no (apparent) issue found. (Didn't measure but guess 5mm left at the rear)

    Thanks guys.. I got 20k out of my first set original Toyota pads and thereafter fitted Ferodo and now ATE. But with the aftermarket getting most 15k.I suspect the calipers might be faulty and got the vehicle booked for next Tuesday at the dealer for them to check. Hope they will be helpful.

    Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.

    To what extent is the wear uneven?

    Another random idea
    To perhaps measure the disks (front and rear) temp with an electronic (IR) non-contact temp gun? (Obviously taking the amount of braking in consideration before measuring)

    I will try to do the same.

    (What I am getting at, only friction can 'wear' the pads etc)
