Hi to all the car experts. Before you all go on about the car itself. Being Euro and French.
I need help on my Renault RS265 Megane. The last time it was serviced the mechanic advised that I should get the front disks and pads done. They said it was borderline and you may be able to make it last a bit longer. Anyway I didn't get them replaced. They have been ok, but suppose I should now get them done.
When they checked it last time the brake disc thickness front were 26.3 and rear 10.3. Have no idea whether that is good or bad.
I asked for a quote last time and it was $374 for pads - Brembo, $914 for the disks(340 dia vented). Labour $130 =$1418. This was a euro mechanic
On a side note about the car. Great as a second hand weekend driver.
Went to another car and brake place and they said they needed to take it up on the hoist to see what disks and brakes are needed so couldn't get a quote.
Haven't even bothered with a dealer quote, but might try calling today.
Do you think I would get a better quote from say a brake specialist. Have sometime this week to get them looked at for quotes.
The question is does anyone actually know if those thicknesses for front actaully triggers requirements for new disks. Pads I can understand, but mine have always squeaked and I have noticed no difference in my braking power. No trackwork.
I am not handy.
