Hi,

I need some help with an issue with my rear brakes. I have a 2006 2.2 Civic and the rear brakes started making a vibration and noise when braking, so i had the pads and discs replaced as the garage said the discs were rusted and the pads where worn, ok so i replaced them.
After about a month the nearside start rusting again (offside was fine) from the centre hub up onto the disc (about a 1/3 of the discs surface)
The garage replaced them under warranty and after the replacement they were lovely and shiny but now a couple of weeks later the rusting is returning again.

Original disc which was replaced on 6th November http://flic.kr/p/irEUB7

A month later disc looked like this http://flic.kr/p/irFfSz

Newly fitted disc http://flic.kr/p/irFg8e

Disc now http://flic.kr/p/irFoAT


Whats going off here? is this anything to worry about or not?
Ive seen other threads where people have said its because the the pad doesn't make contact with all of the disk but why is the rust spreading from the centre upwards and why is it worse on one side?

If any one knows what happening please enlighten me

Thanks

make sure the pads are pushed into the carrier completely, some garages (I know because I fix their shoddy work) put pattern pads into the carrier that are a tad too big, resulting in them getting stuck so the piston isn't pushing them fully. the pads should be able to push in and out of the carrier not too easily but not too hard. get them to check if the pads are seized in the carrier. if not it may be a weak caliper on its way out.
