alfa 156 16v jtd

hello everyone

My cards behind the 'virtual' bar, please feel free to abuse it.
First confession - I don't own an Alfa, my partner however DOES, she loves it to bits hence I'm on here looking for advice to help keep the bills down to a respectable level.

Just been quoted C. 270 for all round pad replacement ( Lucas brake calipers ) on the 156 but when I checked the pads the fronts have 5mm and the rears 4mm of friction material left on them.

The garage said the pads were 80% worn and needed changing and I was wondering what the min thickness spec was for this car. Its the 156 1.9 16v JTD.

Having a search of the forums but may not find the info so if you happen to know I would be most grateful for a reply.

Many thanks,


aka 'Beths mechanic'
