Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the rotors? How many miles are on the car?

110,000 miles, original diskes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 850 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'd like to do it myself. Where might I look at to start?

how do you know rear brakes are not working? what have you done to find and or fix problem?

Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Both rear disks are rust covered, not showing any indication of contact with pads. I estimate rear brakes have not worked during the past two years. Car is driven less than 1000 miles per year.

if rust is real bad you can replace the rotors and bleed the brakes as a first step
