A couple of q's on front discs and pads.Meg 3
Since my front pads n maybe discs may need renewal soon.
A:Forgetting about rs versions, the only difference in size front or back is the base versions are 280mm front and the more powerfull versions are 296mm diameter front.
Could the discs and pads for 296 mm fit on a 280mm setup, or is it definitely different calipers(and or mounting points)?.
There seems to be some clearance on my calipers.. but not sure.
B.Opinions:Since Ive extended my renault guarantee.. and I already know they wont cover suspension components cos of non standard wheel size and lowered springs.
If a pad and disc change is determined to be due at next service..they(renault dealer) would of course supply and fit arm and a leg genuine renault parts..with I suppose a 1 year guarantee on the discs?
What if I got it done with "generic" discs and pads at my local mechanic would that..(opinions),have any effect on guarantee for non brake /suspension related components?
Currently in coup's garage:
