Front Brake pads

When I start the car the service indicator tells me that I need to get new front brake pads after 1500 miles so I think may be another month or so, but when I got my brake fluid changed on last friday the garage guy says the brake pads are only 4% so they should be changed soon along with the micro filter. Could this be correct? please suggest thanks.

Sounds about right. Minimum pad thinkness is 3mm and the pic in the post below was taken when CBS said 2100 miles left. Measured thickness was around 3.5-4mm at the time.


Unless you are hard on your brakes you may be able to strech this a bit longer, but it's a good idea not to wait until it's 0 before you book it in.
