Price Indication For Replacing Brake Discs In Verso

Recommended Posts

We've testdriven a Verso 1.8 T3 today of 2005. We'll also have some test-drives in a Mazda5 tomorrow.

It felt great to drive a Verso again.

I did notice that the brake-discs were rusted (particularly left front).The full service history did not reveal their replacement before (I expected under warranmty).

This leaves the question: How much is it to have the discs replaced? and how do you establish that they need replacing? Do you have any experience with it?

Thanks for yoru help.

Brake discs can look rusty after one day of the car standing around in damp weather. You need to take the car for a drive and after some standard braking also do some reversing with hard braking. This should clean up the discs, if it doesn't then there may be a problem.

Thanks for the tip (particularly about reversing).

Should the discs need replacing, how costly is that, more or less? It may affect the decision or price.

Thanks.

It is usual to discs and pads at the same time. discs can be between £30 - £40 each (per wheel) and pads are between £20 - £40 per pair (wheel). It depends if you go for Toyota originals or a third party brand. Then you just have to add on the labour.

£80 + labour per wheel it is. Thanks.
