    Default Disk change time

    Can someone with access to the correct software please tell me how long VX say it takes to change the front disks and pads on a Signum 3.0 cdti please. I'm sure they quoted me far too long for this today, £165 including parts - but that was using the disk and pad kit which, I believe is about £70.

    many thanks

    0.7 hours for discs only or 0.6 hours for pads only.

    Can't help with a "combined" time for both though.

    any thanks, so how long would £100ish be in labour times? I'm guessing at £70 an hour, does this sound about right?

    What was the problem with the rears? The disk wouldn't come off the hub?
