New Discs And Pads

New Discs And Pads

October 24, 2018 2 By Yeti Admin

It was when I updated my alloys to the black Erebus 17’s that I noticed how worn my brake discs were. All my pads needed changing as well.

It wouldn’t be much longer before the dash warning light came on

Before that happens, I’m replacing the lot. I will pay my trusted mechanic to do the work but I have bought the discs and pads myself online. As is my way!

I’ve opted for Ferodo pads front and rear. If you want them too they’re here on Amazon

Front pads:

For my discs I have chosen middle price range units.

And how it all looks together. Let’s head over to my mechanic’s workshop and plonk this lot in his lap.

The price for the work will be 800 CZK – about £27

8:00 am sharp I arrive at his workshop.

Immediately he sends my girl up in the air.

My Yeti is a 2010 and my discs look like they have never been changed

My mechanic takes his time and is thorough in everything he is doing. Yet still only around fifteen minutes per corner.

I stand and watch the entire procedure.

A little over an hour later and it’s all over

He tells me to pump the brake pedal and I do it until I feel the love. That reassuring brake love we all crave every single time we press our brakes.

If you’re not keen on paying dealer/garage/mechanic marked-up prices for your discs and pads then why not consider doing what I did and buy them yourself? Then either fit them yourself or find a decent mechanic to fit them for you.

Brake discs and pads for all models of Yeti are available on Amazon

Good luck whichever route you choose.
