MG TF Update 10 – New disks and pads all round

So, this came as an advisory on the service. Things needed replacing so I decided to do the full lot and be done with it.

I bought Pagid (OEM to Merc etc) pads and disks from Euro Car Parts for around £172. I was also going to give it a go at fitting myself.

I followed a very handy tutorial written by CJJ off the MG Rover .org Forums.

With a little help from my Dad, I managed to do the work in a weeekend (front one day, back the next)… luckily the weather held off.

I saved myself money on getting them fitted, and by doing so, learnt a little more about car mechanics. The back set I more or less did myself :-)

Result – a better braking experience and no more unhealthy sounding noises making for a better ride all in all.
