    Default Vectra CDTI Front Brake pads !Help!

    Hi Guys.

    Does anyone know of some good brake pads that are relativly cheap that i could possibly buy on ebay. I bought some unnamed ones about a month ago and all they do is squeek all the time and it so annoying. I've put the copper grease on them and they still make the squeeking noise.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    A lot of Vauxhalls own service parts are competively priced without needing to source them elsewhere. Cheap isn't always good, and can sometimes lead to a false economy.

    Alternately try www.autovaux.co.uk - Vauxhall parts (or approved parts) but slightly cheaper generally than from the dealers counter.

    I've always found Mintex pads/discs pretty good and reasonable on ebay.

    My brakes are crap on a 2004 sri cdti! I've just changed the pads to vx ones and they're only mildly better! Maybe try mintex pads, they're usually a safe bet!
