Hi mike, if its just pads you want halfords do them for the classic, think they stock ferodo?
Nobby put a post on recently about ebc red stuff, seem good and there was a link to a site.
The links directory has places able to supply too.
Simple enough to fit, wheel off, remove pins and use a large screwdriver to GENTLY prise the pistons back, when i say gently put the screwdriver between the disc and the old pad being careful not to damage the disc.
Pull old pad out towards centre of the wheel.
Make sure the new pad will slide in smoothly and then smear a little copper grease on the back of the new pad and on any shims if fitted ( don't use your finger as its carsonagenic!)
Replace pins, put wheel on and repeat on the other wheels.
BEFORE driving the car press the brake pedal a few times to push the pistons back toward the pads or the first time you apply the brakes on the road you wont stop :shock:
Check wheel nut security after about 50 miles.
The new pads will take a little while to bed into your discs so take it easy for a while!

I'll have to ask, unfortunately he can only get a certain amount of cost items, and he gets his staff discount for us....

How do I pay him back.......???? :wink: :wink: :wink:

A free haircut....... How cool is that....!!!!
