BTW, for what it's worth, I am not a huge fan of buying brake parts on line. Relatively heavy to ship and if bought prudently through a local motor-factors, rarely works out much cheaper. Shop around locally to see what you can find and remember that it's better to spend the money on your car's parts than it is their postage.
asides that, berlingo brakes are a doddle. To change the discs on mine (which I did a good while ago) I needed a TX55 torx bit (if I remember correctly) and an 18" breaker bar to undo the caliper carriers so I could get the old disc out.
Phil is bang in imo. Don't buy them online, just pop into your local ECP (take a look online before hand and enter your reg so you know whats available) and buy a set. You should change the pads with the disks really, so get your hands on a set.
Changing is very easy, but where it will go wrong is removing the bolts, so make sure you are prepared for that, you dont want to round any heads.
-Remove the wheel, then remove the bolt that holds the caliper shut (which can be found at the top of the caliper on the back of it.Removing this bolt will allow you two swing open the caliper and remove the pads.
Now that the caliper is free, it will still be attached to the vehicle via the brake fluid cable. Do not allow the caliper to hang by this cable, rest it on something and take the weight off that cable.
- Then there are two hex bolts on the back of the caliper that need taking out, these are tough so make sure you have the appropriate tools.
- Nearly there now, just remove the two Torx bolts from the front of the caliper; use one strong and swift movement because the disk will be rolling around, and you dont want to round the heads as they will be tight!
Good luck, any problems, then let us know. Maybe some pics would be good for a tut!
