Hi All,

Can anyone please tell me how much a rear brake disc would be for a renault scenic 2000 and does the brake disc have to be specific to the model or will another type do,

thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum :)

If you click on the link below and type in your vehicle details you will get an idea of the cost of the brake discs for your car.

And also, yes you do need a pair of discs (dont just replace the one brake disc or your asking for trouble) specific to your model, well more particularly the engine size as some models with bigger / more powerful engines have bigger brake discs to compensate. Its also probably wise to factor in a pair of brake pads too as these should ideally be changed when changing brake discs.

Taking a quick look at the site probably about £78 for a pair of rear discs and jusy shy of £25 for a pair of brake pads.

The rear discs are so expensive as they have an abs sensor in too and maybe a wheel bearing too. :crazy:

If you put your reg number into the site it will get a set matched to your car though.

Dont forget that doesnt include fitting. Probably approx 2 hours labour to fit that lot, which should be £90 @ £45 p/h (local independant garage labour prices).

That does seem very steep to me too, unless the price is from a Renault main dealer / agent, which I wouldnt be suprised at. That works out at approx £415 for a set of brake dics and pads fitted. :crazy:

I'd go somewhere else and seek a second opinion. :)
