Yaris 1.5 TS brake pads length issue
I have bought a used Toyota Yaris 1.5 VVTi TS (2001), which had its front brake pads replaced on May (Before I got it).
When I got it to a garage for a check before a trip, they told me that the break pads are unfit, they are shorter than they should be (they showed me that they don't fit perfectly), and that this is extremely dangerous and I should not drive the car until fixed.
However, searching around, I have seen that the previous owner also used the same brake pads (he had given me the old ones when he put the new before we changed).
If I search Ferodo, the break pads I use are 112mm length (FDB1368). When I search by my model, Ferodo shows these, but in vehicles it doesn't include mine.
My vehicle is included in the FDB1513 , which are 130mm long, but if I search by OE number (0446517100), Ferodo shows the FDB1392 which are 116mm.
In other sites, if I search parts compatible with OE number, I get some that are 116 and some 130mm.
My question is, because I have not been able to find a garage available to change those today or tomorrow, and I have a trip arranged for tomorrow by car, is it safe to do it or do I have to cancel it? (I have visitors and hotels booked etc). And how can I know which exactly are the correct brake pads for my car?
Thank you very much for the help.
Here it mentions it is ok to be a little shorter or longer, but within limits of manufacturer, which I cannot find anywhere.
