    Hi,

    Anyone know of where i can buy reasonably cheap front and read brake pads for an 1998 1.8T sport?

    vwspares have quoted about £55 ish delivered.

    Also, there seems to be two sizes for the pads, anyone know which ones i need for my car?

    Thanks Anand

    One of the front pads (can't remember which side) will have a wire coming out of the pad friction material.

    You should be able to see if you turn the wheels and get under the arch.

    think its the inside pad as these wear slightly faster normally
