some rust where the pad should be in contact with the disc so brake efficiency is affected. I wonder if the inside of the disc/drums are pitted hence the handbrake efficiency not to good.

It's my understand that most of the braking efficiency is at the front the rears never really get exercised. I try and remember to brake hard a couple of times a month to remove any rust on the rear discs.

Done a few handbrakes and never seen any pitting on the inside of the drum, probably the shoes are glazed and when roughed up with a dreadnought file and adjusted you'll notice a marked improvement.

Regards

when i got my Tourer the insides of the "drums" were so pitted I changed the drums/discs.
The rust where the pads touch is not the surface rust you get when the car has been standing, this is eating into the disc. I've seen some really bad ones on another car, so bad I spoke to the driver.

Here are some I changed earlier (they looked good on the other side!).

Climate variation perhaps, most of our precipitation comes in the form of white stuff during winter, and with temperatures so low that no moisture forms.

Sorry, but some of those faults are due to neglected regular maintenance. Worn tyre? Anti- lock braking system. Easily seen on dashboard (light). Handbrake. Easily noted when applying hand brake. Oh dear. Poor car.
