Easy way out?
Smashing and informative post and interesting follow up. However, I had doubts about replacing them myself. I got them done just yesterday, in a Glasgow Kwick fit for £64.10 and it took the fitter just over an hour. Also KF has a lifetime replacement on the pads for as long as you own the car.
I usually do as much work as I can on my cars and was aware there might have been a bit of hard sell on other parts like tyres etc., or an exageration of the work required to do the pads, but there was none of that.
Incidently, Renault minute wanted £114 for the job and Buget Tyres wouldn't touch it saying they had a technical bulletin from HQ to that effect.
Hope this helps someone to make up their mind re DIY or otherwise.
PS Renaut minute has a voucher for a free puncture repair amongst other things.
