Hi I have a 2011 XF 3.0 Diesel, just passed MOT but have advisory re: front brakes Pads & discs, I have done 52K: only had car 9 months love it more than my 2 XJS's.  Is it best to have dealer replace or easy home job recommendations please 

Nearest dealer is Hatfields in Hull. so will be full day out, do dealers still lend courtesy cars still?

Welcome to the Club, David.

 

I don't get oily hands any more, so I will leave it to others more mechancally expert on how easy a job it is.

 

A full day out in Hull does not sound very good to me.  They used to say "From Hell, Hull and Halifax O Lord defend us."

 

But going to a main dealer for repair work is not my idea of a cheap day out.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Hello David and welcome to The Jaguar Owners Club. You would find it a relatively easy job and a good place to purchase the discs and pads will be;

 

http://ebcbrakesdirect.com/Store/Automotive/vt/1

 

I have used them in the past and they would offer a choice of disc's / pads whether you want standard or drilled/vented, crossed drilled etc
