    Default New Brakes...

    Hi All
    car developed some quite bad grating over the last few days - inspected the rear pads and what I found was quite bizarre.

    OS rear, pads looked ok, NS rear, pads were on the rivets !!

    Had to get it fixed as I need the car for work so dropped it off at the local Kwik Fit. They looked at it and advised the scoring on the NS rear disc was too bad so needed new discs and pads.

    Fair play to them, they did it all within 2 hours and the charge was £180. Does that seem reasonable? ( pads also came with free lifetime replacement- i.e when they wear out, can have them replaced FOC assuming I still own the car)

    I dunno, the parts from vx for the kit are £65ish. But free pads for life? 50-60K on the rears so will you ever use it? Also wondering why one side was worn mor than the other? Is the handbrake/caliper sticking on a bit on one side?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
