2003 986S Rear Brakes -- w/Disc Replacement

Recommended Posts

I'm planning for the last (I hope) project of the year on my Boxster: Replacing the rear brakes pads and discs. Did the front one's this summer (including discs) and the rears should be ready for replacement soon and I'm planning on replacing the discs the too. 

I know the Rear discs include the parking brake. This car has 100k on it. Should I plan on replacing the parking brake pads at this time? I know a visual inspection will be needed, but if they're likely to need replacement I'll just order the parts at the same time. I always set the parking brake and I will admit that a few times a year I've driven off with the brake still set. Would be irked if I had to stop part way through to get my hands on pads for the parking brake.

It's a Tip if that matters


thx, CB
