    Hi, i have noticed today that my rear brakes dont seem to be fully functioning, having inspected the rear discs quickly i have noticed that there are score marks around the disc, looks like the disc has rusted (like they would normally when not using them for a couple of days) and then the pad has only made odd scores on the disc and not taken all of the rust off!
    I also noticed the other night that the drivers side rear rear brake was quite hot and smelt of burning after use, and it has also been quiite noisy at low speeds. People have told me this is probably caused by a seized caliper.
    Would people reckon that the rear discs/pads need replacing? if so any recommendations?

    cheers
