Check minimum brake disc thickness:

New brake linings may only be installed if the brake disc thickness is greater than or equal to the minimum brake disc thickness (MIN TH).

NOTE: The minimum thickness of the brake disc is designed so that it holds over the service life of a further set of brake pads if it is greater than or equal to the minimum brake disc thickness (MIN TH).
