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.
