WHAT IS IT WITH THE CAPS LOCK ? My Haynes bought last year covers 1996 to 2010 but once you start taking brakes to bits they are pretty self explanatory. £202 does sound a bit steep for the parts though.
So where does this bit go then ?

GIVE ME A BRAKE?

As said already, £200 sounds a little high. Anyone with a MK3 know if the procedure is similar to MK2, never done it myself on the latest model but if its anything like the MK2 it isn't a difficult task at the front. The main issue with doing it on the MK2 were the seized/rusted bolts but with yours being younger and assuming lower mileage, it shouldnt be as much of an issue.

I wrote up a tutorial a while back...must be in one of my posts.

How much?!

Now I have no idea how different they are from the MK2 discs and pads, but I paid less than £70 for a set of pads and two discs from my local factor in January. I fitted them in an hour.

My local Citroen main dealer will supply and fit genuine front discs and pads for £220 all inclusive.

The "cheapie" discs I put on a Xantia 4 years ago have now done 75, 000. Brake parts are one of those odd items where quality is not always dictated by price. It does pay to do a bit of research on the Internet first.

I told my mother: "When I grow up, I want to be a musician".

She said: "You can't have it both ways!"

There's a parallel in brakes (discs and pads) IMO. You either go for bite or longevity.

I put juratek discs on my mini and they are very good. Based in the uk they started out selling truck brake discs so they know what they're doing.
