Brake pad replacement

Hi. Normal garage tools will be enough (spanners' sockets, Allen keys). Check out You tube for videos. If you're looking for pads, discs and wire, I can recommend MTec brakes in Derry/Londonderry. Free postage. I'm using their EBC Red and drilled discs.

Good luck, Paj.

Thank you Paj that's a great help I will look at the Mtec site.

Because I suffer with this cold weather I got the job done by the mechanic we have used for some 35 years. the back pads were like new front pads just starting to wear the sensor so just changed the front discs. £130 parts and labour. Great value I think

I feel one must know what make of discs and pads are used before serious comment can be made on value for money. £130 for pads, discs and fitting certainly sound very cheap to me.

Best Wishes and Regards, John

I did not need discs John as they were in good order and not a lot of wear on them, just the pads, they were EBC pads and sensor. My mech only uses parts he would use on his own vehicles.

                                      Thanks for your input buddy
