    2016 CX-5 Sport rear pads question

    I just took my '16 CX-5 Sport to my mechanic to get the rear disc pads replaced. I told my mechanic it was a '16 model but he said he looked at the date of manufacture on the door label which is 4/15 to order the rear pads. So, looks like he might have ordered for 2015 model year.

    So I looked up rear brake pads for both the 2015 and 2016 models. It looks like the 2015 uses the 1624 model.. The 2016 rear brakes are the 1846 model.

    Pauls Travel Pictures brake job guide makes it seem like the 1624 rear pads can be used for CX-5 from 2013-16 model years. Am I ok if the mechanic used the 1624 rear pads? The brakes seem to work fine.

    Arrow 2016 CX-5 Sport rear pads question

    The rear brakes for 2016 CX-5 have Electrical Parking Brake but not on prior CX-5's. 2016 CX-5 started selling in February 2015 and the build date can be as early as December 2014. If you found different part numbers for whatever the brand, you should use the one designated to 2016 MY.

    If the brake shop you chose didn't aware your CX-5 is a 2016 MY simply by the EPB, I believe chances are they screwed up the rear pad installation without putting the EPB in maintenance mode and turned the caliper cylinders!

    HELP! Can't get the rear brake piston to compress! 2016 CX5m

    So would installing the 2015 rear pads on a 2016 CX-5 sport mess up the braking system? Would the dashboard throw a warning or malfunction code? Is it safe to drive with 2015 rear pads?

    It depends on which brand of pads installed. In OP's situation I'd go back to the brake shop making sure they installed 2016 pads. Most brake shops offer lifetime warranty on pads, and they should replace the wrong pads for free. A friendly reminder of EPB maintenance mode and not turning the rear caliper piston helps the mechanic doing the job right.
