    Question Rear Brake Pads & Disc Replacement

    Hello everyone... good to be here... and a happy new year...

    I have an Audi A6, 1.9 TDI from 1999, tomorrow morning i am going to change my rear brake pads and disc... i live near London....

    Does anyone have any idea if the price will pass over 200 for them to change them?

    I have been to halfords and the discs and pads are around 60-70. So i am guessing the work to install could go to around 100, i do not know exactly... and i don't want to get ripped off... my first car :D...

    Cheers,
    Robert

    be aware you will need to 'rewind' the piston into the caliper, motor shops will sell u the tool for this.

    It's not hard to do, you can buy the rewind tool off ebay for 20 delivered and do it yourself if you got basic tools, takes about an hour max each side if you get the whole back end up you can do both in and hour.
