Try buypartsby.co.uk ... usually supply Mintex pads and possibly cheaper than ECP (although 25% off might make a difference)

Or try carparts4less.co.uk ... part no 101580191

Now I've used buypartsby a lot, but not cheapparts4less yet. But what is odd, it the latters looks just like ECP ... but lower prices! :)

I agree Gazza Buyparts are very good, the only problem with them is for single items like a set of brake pads the delivery is a killer. In this case £24.43 delivered.

The cheapcar link is an interesting one though. It does look like ecp indeed but prices are lower even with ecp 25% discount

A proper rewind tool makes the job VERY simple.

Have to say though, removing the old pads before you had a new set to refit wasn't great planning!!

do you know what the worst bit is? the rain ****ing down the back of my neck, the reason i took them off is that i went to the motor factors on sat morning gave them my reg and never checked the pads in the box,ah well sunday sat by the tv i guess or i might even put the xmas tree up ohhhhhh joy

Top tip - whenever i jack a car up to take a wheel off i put the wheel on the road under the car, then if the car falls off the jack its hopefully going to limit the damage to the underside of the car. Even if i have axle stands under there I still do it.
