    Time to replace discs/pads which ones on A4 V6?

    just had the mot and had advisory on front and rear discs but what do i go for. B5 2000 X reg 2.4 V6, direct replacement pagids discs/pads all round, parts about Ł180 or brembo with pagid pads all round for about the same price or do i do something else? Are there any writeups on how to change the discs front/rear on a B5, is it straightforward - any tips? cheers guys

    Pagid is decent stuff.

    I would avoid buying OTT disks with stupid grooves and holes in them, just get nice normal plain disks, and decent pads.

    if you can change the pads you can change the discs theres usualy a screw to hold the disc to the hub this will be rusted in solid if the discs havnt been changed before that is.

    didnt think the discs were held on with a screw, i thought they were held in place by the carriers?????

    get some decent grade discs and then get some proper pads, DS25000 are well rated, i have black diamond pads but too much dust for my liking so wont use again but they work well once heated up

    mate it really is simple, jus take caliper off then the carrier, pop new discs on and assemble back. once you do one side then its simple on there after

    well went for pagid all round. On the front discs/pads does anyone know if the outboard pad is directional. The inboard pad is as it has a an arrow on the back of the pad where the spring is to push into the caliper piston. can't see any markings on the outboard pad though. Anyone know?

    They are not directional just fit them and make shure you clean the caliper carrier of any built-up rust on the sliding sides...
