Anyone had a decent deal on brakes, been having a look online and all seem expensive. All four are grooved and coroded so need the full set before Mot, not due soon and wont be replacing in the next week but having a look to see whats available.
I can see two sizes for the 3.0d, I assume I have...
Just had all brake discs replaced for the 2nd time so I am now on my 3rd set. I have had the F Pace from new and it has done 45,000 miles since March 2017, 90% of usage has been on motorways or fast A roads (I don't live in a big town or city and rarely travel to one) and 99% of the time I am...
Like many XE's my daughters car needs new Discs and Pads. She managed to get 30,000 miles out of them, much better than many.
Are any special tools required to remove and replace the discs and pads?
Most cars require TORX to remove the discs (often T40) and the calipers (T larger). If the XE...
Hi all... Thanks for having me!! I had a full service today at Jaguar Cheltenham.. it was all good! However they called part way through and told me i needed new rear lads and discs as well as front pads. The quote from them to do the work was £938!!!!! I politely declined. I’ve been looking for...
The life expantancy of my pads is nigh and i think i will swap out the discs at the same time. however, there seems to be 3 different sizes on offer (Front):
is there a reason for 3 sets being available for this car?
I suspect the only way to be sure is to off-wheels and...
My 08 xkr needs new pads and discs on the front.
By all accounts I do not have the performance brake option fitted.
I'm also not prepared to tolerate any main dealer or specialist naming their own price.
I'm interested in everyone's view of Mintex, Apec, Brembo or Ferodo parts.
I replaced discs and pads on my car about a month ago. I wanted to share the experience, as I opted for a producer that is not very common in performance market.
Both the discs and pads I opted for are TRW. The discs are painted high-carbon (performance) ones. Front vented and rear solid.
Since there are different sales promotions going on any specific thread title is soon obsolete.
So we can post the current ones here.
The current promotion is:
20% off mId-month sale for June.
Hi all. The discs and pads on my 2007 XJ 2.7D need replacing and the online place I'm thinking of buying from wants to know the disc diameter. They say that the front discs can be 300mm, 320mm or 326mm and the rear discs can be 288mm or 326mm. I've got the 20" wheels.
I can't take the wheels...
XF 2.2 200
Car was in for some warranty work to fix rattles, and both front and rear discs and pads are apparently at 95% wear. I fell off my horse when the dealer quoted almost £1k for that.
If I do myself, or take to an indy, what are people's thoughts on brands? ECP seem to do reasonable...
Just found out I need new pads all round soon.
Toying with the idea of using ceramic pads (e.g.EBC red stuff).
Can I use these ceramic pads with the old discs?
Will the braking be improved?
I have to replace my rear pads and discs on my XK and am thinking of fitting EBC red stuff pads and EBC discs, the front pads are ok. Will fitting red stuff to just the rear unbalance the cars braking or will it be ok or should I replace the front pads to red stuff also? Any help would be...
