Got an advisory on wife's Corsa front brake pad thickness, during heath check while on a recall job. 6mm remaining thickness.
It's got this lifetime warranty if correctly serviced.
When does front brake pad thickness change from an advisory to "requires urgent attention".
It's due for a service this month, and will have done less than 2k since last service. I need to check the pads first, but assuming there is still plenty of meat left are we within our rights to tell them not to replace them until we get the audible brake pad wear indicator sounding.

They should not change them until they meet manufactures min limit or wear indicator triggered.

They often suggest/advice replacement due to long service intervals and not knowing how heavy owners are on brakes if they think pad is close to limit.

6mm is taking the pee in my view most would not comment until around 3mm

Yeah, I think they are taking the pee putting an advisory on the work sheet at 6mm. I'll have a look at them before we put it in for the service and take it from there.
Cheers,
Malcolm.
