  2. Mk3 Brakes, Wheels & Tyres
    Hi, Id appreciate some advise please. Ive owned a 63 plate (2014) MK3 focus for 4 years now - currently has just over 40k miles on the clock. Last year the brake fluid was due but the garage (Ford franchise dealer) were unable to complete the job. They completed (and charged me for) half of the...

    Just had an MOT as coming up for three years old. It failed with a 36% imbalance at the front. They checked them out, and discovered completely wrong pads on one side! They have a much smaller area, huge chamfer, and a groove. There's no reason they would have been removed for the first two...

    Hi, Just had our 2nd service at 23k miles and in addition to the brake fluid change I was expecting to have to replace the front pads, if not all round. I'm very surprised to hear that the front brake pads are only 50% worn! The front disks too are only slightly lipped, the rears must be...

    Hi all, After replacing my front discs and pads over the weekend the car seems to feel unresponsive and restrained. I take it this is due to brake drag although i havent been able to pinpoint which caliper is causing this. The heat seems equal from them all after a drive. I made sure whilst...

  9. Mk2 Brakes, Wheels & Tyres
    Hi, Having just got my car back with it's new engine it looks like by front discs are going to need replacing soon. I'd like an upgrade rather than standard items and was thinking along the lines of EBC Yellowstuff pads and Ultimax front discs. Will these replace my standard parts directly/work...

    I've been in touch with EBC and they already make Bluestuff pads for the ST and many other cars, so this gives a very good additional option. EBC Bluestuff pads Front standard calipers DP51574NDX Rear standard calipers DP51749NDX They also stated that when running EBC, you should run the same...
