Brake Discs Fault Symptoms & Problems

Brake discs are pretty straight-forward parts, they provide a large surface area for brake pads to clamp onto to slow the car down. The larger the brake disc the larger the stopping surface area, this is why cars like Porsches and Ferraris have huge brake discs filling the inside of the wheel.

Brake discs can suffer from various problems such as corrosion and warping, continual maintenance and checks should be carried out to ensure they're in top condition, it's one of the main parts of the car that can have a direct impact on yours and other people's safety.

Brake Discs Replacement Cost

How much does it cost to replace the Brake Discs?

An average cost to replace a full set of brake discs and pads on a car would be between £300 - £400. This clearly will vary a lot based on the type and size of car and the garage that carries out the work.

Sometimes it's not necessary to replace all the discs at the same time, you will often need only the front or rear replacing. You should try to always replace them in pairs on an axle to ensure consistent braking power and response.
