I'm trying to do my first brake job (front), and I have a question which might seem silly, but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer.
My new pads only have one wear indicator for each side (at least that's what I'm assuming the little plate of metal to be).
1. Does the pad with the indicator go on the inside or outside of the rotor?
2. Does the indicator go toward the front (meaning a given spot on the rotor would meet it after passing the pad when driving forward) or toward the back (rotor would meet it first, then the pad)?
For the record, they're currently on the outside toward the back. But they were last changed at a body shop following an accident, and based on the rest of the hack job they've done
, I can't trust that they've done it correctly.
I don't think it'll make any difference, but the rotors and calipers are being changed out as well.
