Rear Discs

Postby babymerc2000 » Thu May 10, 2007 3:27 pm

Can anyone tell me if it is a difficult job to change the rear discs on my wife's 1.6 megane. I've just priced a set at £115+vat, is that good? :cry:

Search online m8 , I am sure a friend of mine got them for either 23+vat or 33+vat , and very easy to put on .

Make sure however that the discs have the bearings installed.

ABS rings should be also installed.

For this job you will need a long hub nut socket, a long extension/breaker bar and a powerful torque wrench. This is in addition to the "regular" tools. The calliper bolts require threadlock (it was discussed earlier).

It is possible to transfer the old bearings and rings to the new discs, but this requires special tools. LGC wrote about it some time ago.

I bought them from

on LGC's advice. Not as cheap as sideswipe quoted...
