Brake Pads and Discs

Brake pads and discs

Maintaining your brake pads and discs in peak condition is vital when it comes to vehicle safety

At LN motors we have the most competitive prices around when it comes to brake parts. As well as fitting brake pads and discs we also supply and fit damaged or corroded brake lines Servos, Master cylinders. We also re-manufacture sticking or seized brake calipers. We only use premium brand parts such as Bendix, Apec and Brembo.

Although it really depends on driving style a new set of Brake Pads should last an average of 27K KM and the Discs about 60k km.

The rear brakes generally last a bit longer than the front as there is a bit more force needed at the front as the engine and gearbox is located in the front therefore it would be a bit heavier. Over time brake calipers can become sticky and sometimes even seize. But don’t worry because most of the time we can re-manufacture these at a fraction of the cost of a brand new part from the dealer.
Bellow you will see an average price of brake pads for the most common cars. If your not sure if your car is covered simply contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Engine Size Rear Pads (Shoes) Front Pads
1.0-1.2L (micra, yaris, corsa etc.) €85 €90
1.3-1.6L (corolla, golf, astra etc.) €90 €95
1.7-2.0L (passat, vectra, A4 etc.) €95 €100

Brake Discs

Brake Discs will typically last about 2-3 times longer than Brake Pads but eventually they need to be replaced because the brake pads will wear the metal surface of the disc over time. Please feel free to Contact us for an exact price for having your brake discs replaced.

Brake Calipers

Put simply Brake Calipers press the Brake Pads against the Brake Disc. Over time the protective seals on the Calipers tear and allow dirt and water in to the insides of the Calipers causing them to seize. To save you money we can re-manufacture your seized brake calipers and have them as good as new at a fraction of the cost of a brand new one.

How Brakes Work?

Most brake systems are quite simply. There is a brake disc, brake caliper and 2 brake pads at each wheel. When you press the brake pedal brake fluid is forced into the caliper which in turn causes the caliper to squeeze the 2 brake pads against the brake disc and slowing you down.
If you notice your brake pedal getting a little softer than usual or you feel you have to press the brake pedal a little harder than usual you probably need to have your Brake Pads replaced. We offer a free brake inspection so if you are not sure just simply Contact us and we can arrange to inspect your braking system free of charge.
