Smile Re: Change Discs and Pads

Well that was an interesting day. Started at 9.00 changing the discs on my laguna, finished at 4.14pm.
If anyone does this for the first time then you need a 7mm brake caliper hexagonal key plus an 18mm socket with an extention bar. The bolts on both sides were absolutely solid and they took hours to get out. Once out, cleaned them and the carrier and was able to put in the bolts with my fingers! The time taken putting it all back together was approximately 45 mins, it all went smoothly. All tightened up, brake pedal pumped until hard, road tested. Must have worked because I'm typing this.
Currently in thalatta's garage:
A load of junk. Too full to get car into!
