Re: Has anyone had this happen to them?

Never happened to me thank goodness!

Here is a tip for you - I find out and write down the official part numbers for service items like brake pads and discs for my car. You can usually do this by going through the service history receipts.

I then do a search on ebay for that part number and subscribe to alerts for that search.

Now and again you get sellers who seem to buy up old stock of parts and you can often find genuine pads for about 15 a set (my car is a 55 reg).

So over time I stock up on genuine Renault parts like brake pads for less than you can buy cheap aftermarket bits for.

I would rather use genuine parts and 15 compared to dealer prices is a no brainer.
