That job is easier to do with the correct tool, not expensive either.

It's difficult without, guess how I found that out.

Ended up getting my rear pads and disks done. Which is a bit weird I think as its a FWD car, the front pads/disks are still good. The rears had a lot of corrosion and scoring on disks. I don't live or visit seaside so bit confused why they went so bad.

My guess is the front disks are made from a more hard wearing grade of steel. My experience is the rear disks / pads wear a lot quicker than the fronts even though the fronts give the majority of the braking force.

I can only think that the EBD must be applying more force to front instead of rear. The disks are bigger on the front so probably better for heat dissipation too. (I've noticed Auto's tend to have even bigger).

I believe that it is usually 60% of the brake force is distributed to the front with 40% to the rear. The ABS and other braking system wizardry take care of the rest to keep the car stable.

The problem is the rears just don't get enough work to clean the rust off. A disc is overkill really on back brakes.

Autos will have better front brakes as you don't get engine braking very much with an auto.
