Getting mad with: 440s rear brakes...

  1. Hi!

    At first:
    Sorry if this is an already answered question, but I am new to this
    group - Thank you!

    The Problem:
    I am still driving my 94-440-VOLVO (B18U) and I have to change the
    disks and the pads of the rear brakes everytime, when I have to go to
    the technical check-up (called TÜV in Germany). After approx. six
    months the disks are "blue" and there is no braking-effect anymore.

    The VOLVO-Dealer told me, that this is a known problem with the
    "Lukas"(or "Lucas"?) system and that the power ratio is 70/30 -
    front/rear. But not more :-((

    Is there a solution to my problem? A way to get the discs clean again?
    Any hints?

    Thanks and Best Regards,
