Re: Espace 4 Rear Pads....106 to replace?

I was quoted 120 for a set of fronts by a main dealership recently so it's in the same ballpark.

Might be worth checking the disk thickness with the specs as pads end to be made of harder materials these days so often the 2 need changing. Be a shame to need to change the disk next year.

There is a very good article on this site explaining how to do it. You will need a special wind back tool for the calliper to change the pads &, if you do change the disks, the hub nut requires a torque beyond most diy wrenches.

Pads weren't expensive as I recall.
