anyone know anything about car break discs?


Hi all

Was supposed to be going up to derby on monday to meet SILs new baby - not happening now.

noticed this week our car had funny noise when we used the breaks so booked it in for a break check this morning - front break pads and break discs need replacing

quoted 57.60 for pads and 102.90 for discs.

well i know the break pads quote is stupid because my OH can change them himself and they cost us 16 quid to by last time so OH can do that himself.

As for break discs we not sure about.

are these simple to sort? or are we going to have to pay a garage to sort them?

OH is not a mechanic but can do basic things - break pads, spark plugs etc..

I don't know how difficult it is, but personally I wouldn't do anything with the brakes unless i was 100% sure I knew what i was doing. I would definitely use a garage.

Is a disc a rotor? I had damagedy brake pads and rotors and was leaking brake oil everywhere and it was about $200 to replace. Unless you know someone really savvy with cars, I would just have it fixed by a shop! Though I would try and call and find the best price.

ETA: Just saw your update, that's great!

Discs and pads are dead easy to replace.

I've never paid a garage to do them.
