Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

To follow-up on this, rear brakes replaced today by a private garage. Brembo discs and pads and Pagid sensor, Total inc labour £324.60 compared to the £446.29 main dealer price first time round so £122 cheaper, plus I know and trust it's quality parts, not LR chocolate ones. Unfortunately, I'm unlik...

Re: Is it really that bad?

Another ongoing cost is the replacement of rear brake discs and pads every 10-20k miles. That's over £400 each time if using a main dealer. There is no consistency on how dealers handle this issue. Some will replace under warranty, some tell you it's by design or in my case the first set was done un...

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

So, went to dealer today and as expected, wear and tear. No way I'm paying dealer prices for more chocolate brakes so popped to a private repair shop I used for many years of Impreza ownership. Well respected and trusted. He's saying go with Pagid over Brembo so going to get it booked in next week. ...

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

Spotted this a few weeks ago on the JLR site, but forgot to post it. Has anyone gone down the Ombudsman route with regard to chocolate brakes? There is plenty evidence in this topic alone to support any case and show the inconsistency demonstrated by dealers & JLR when dealing with this issue. It wo...

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

Just ordered Brembo Discs, pads and ABS (brand) pad wear sensor -£98.05 inc. delivery. Cheers Barnsh. 👍 Keep us posted on how this works out. I can tell from my previous invoice the total dealership would have charged (if it hadn't been refunded) for parts would have been £260.60 inc VAT so that's ...

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

I've got mine booked on on the 5th Jan, but I think I'm going to say sod it and cancel. I can already tell from my initial conversation booking it in and explaining the history how it's going to go. I got the fronts done by an independent I trust and used during many years of Scooby ownership. Didn'...

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

Sounds like more rubbish. The dealer charged me for replacement. After getting over the shock of the cost I thought hang on a second, there is no way, on any vehicle, that the rear brakes should wear out before the front so did a bit of investigating. That was when I found this site/topic. I used th...

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

I had a service done at 19700 miles yesterday. They noted my rear brake disks are badly corroded and the rear pads were at 2mm. £471 to replace. I pointed out the service bulletins referenced in this thread and the fact that other people had the problem rectified under warranty. No deal. Apparently...

Re: Rusty brake discs & Calipers

Here we go again... After my previous disc corrosion adventures documented earlier in this topic, which I did finally get a refund for after CRC got involved, last week I got a Worn Brake Pads warning. I know it can't be the front as front pads and discs were replaced (at my expense) in July at 35,0...

Blocked pop-ups

5? Really? Thought pop-ups were a thing of the past.
