Replaced Front Brake Pads. Only half pad used?

MSPs have bigger brakes than other 3rd gen Proteges. I have a feeling that's the simple reason OPs pads weren't fitting correctly. Kinda weird that no one mentioned that in 20 replies (rtfm)

Anyway, use '02 Mazda 626 V6 brake pads for the front of an MSP. Maybe someone who knows can either correct me or confirm, but I'm pretty sure the rear brake pads from an FC (86-91) RX-7 will fit the MSP rears.


I'm about to do a brake job on my MSP. I'll post here when I'm done.

The Mazdaspeed Protege uses:
1997-2002 Mazda 626 V6 pads in front and
1989-1995 RX-7 pads in the rear.

Period! (rtfm)
