    Default Edition100 brakes labour

    Hi. Could anyone advise me roughly how many hours labour I should expect to pay for to have my front and rear discs and pads replaced? I am sourcing the parts myself but have neither the time, skill or equipment to do the change. Thanks.

    Edition 100 brakes are no different to any other Vec with the same engine, BTW. Shouldn't take a pro with a lift/ramp more than 90 mins.

    Simple job, get e brakes off eBay where they are cheap and fit them yourself and save loads of money

    Cheers guys, I've been quoted £140 for a GM full disc and pad kit delivered from autovaux which seems ok to me. If worst case senario it takes 2hours labour then that's not a bad price for the whole hog.

    He's too cheap £60.00 and no less tools cost money.

    About 2hrs max for the job is fair.

    Join the club and have access to trade club prices.

    Front disc and pad set from Vauxhall would then be about £75

    I normally charge £20 hr if doing private jobs as I enjoy working on cars.
