Thanks for the positive comments Jacko.

Good luck with it and let us know how you get on.

Welcome to the forum by the way.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Excellent post, clear and easy to follow. This is what makes this forum so good, people are willing to share information and help each other. There are lots of people out there who are tired of being ripped of by so called mechanics who charge the earth and dont do a good job.

As it says in the post, this is a simple job but if you dont feel confident with spanners dont attempt it....

I've done 350 miles since i changed the discs and pads. But now they are starting to squeal slightly, is this normal? I did use brake paste when i put the new pads on aswell...

Smile Thanks for the great information


That is very useful information, I think I will print it out to keep for reference if that's OK, as I'm not sure I'll be able to trace it again!

Information about bleeding the brakes would also be great, I have a haynes manual, but sometimes they are not as clear as they could be, and the addition of good photos here is indispensible.
