    Default Brake Caliper and Pads

    Hi folks

    Got a grinding noise driving home from work yesterday, went to national tyres this morning for them to take a look and they said the read offside calipers has seized and worn the brake pad down. He said both would need replacing and the cost would be £468inc. Does this sound right ??

    ummmm, no. That's outrageously expensive. Definitely go elsewhere. Keep away from the chain places like National & Kwikfit. Go to a local independant.

    Well it doesnt seem to expensive a part to warrant near £500 ! I'm hoping our little independent will be better : A.P.S in Wellington, Somerset.
