Disc and Pad Replacement

Post by alanplum241276 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 11:06 am

I'm toying with the idea of replacing the discs and pads on my 2.0 180 R-Sport.

I've found these discs from EBC (Click the discs tab):

https://ebcbrakesdirect.com/automotive/ ... 5-/1001661

But not quite sure what pads to get out of the 4 types.

Has anyone fitted EBC pads?

There may be an issue with corrosion in Jaguar Brake disc's. My car is fairly early car (July2015) 240ps petrol Portfolio. It had its annual service in July with Jaguar Amersham and its first Mot.. On the health check video it highlighted that all four brake disc's were worn, pitted and scored on the inner surface. The car has only done 20,000 miles. The Mot now has these all listed as advisories. It was also advised that the brake fluid needed changing as the vehicle was three years old. I was initially quoted at £751 to have the work done, not sure if this included Vat.
Fortunatley they decided to do it under warranty, I had to pay for the brake fluid change. I believe some Landrover/Range Rover owners are having similar problems with brake disc's and it has been mentioned on another thread on here

Ah, it didn't sound like that from your original post where you said you were toying with the idea of changing them and it is only 1 year old! ;)

My discs are in pretty poor shape, and I’ve read others on here with similar.

Personally I’d rather pay a few hundred quid to source and fit my own “non jaguar” brakes.

Only 17000 on the clock.

EBC seem to be well respected, so thought I’d ask if anyone had done it.

I’m leaning towards the RedStuff pads at the moment.

Well, I've taken the plunge.

I've order the discs from MTEC:

https://www.mtecbrakes.com/brake-discs/ ... -2015.html

Went for Dimpled Grooved.

I've ordered the pads from EBC:

https://ebcbrakesdirect.com/automotive/ ... 5-/1001661

Went for the EBC Redstuff.

Total price (with finding online voucher codes): £275.89.

My local garage man (who owns a Jag XF) is going to fit them all for £100. So £375.89.

From my understanding Jag charge £465 to do the same thing. (Albeit with OEM parts)

If you are going to do this yourself, be careful on getting the correct size front discs based on your engine. Mine is the 316mm discs (checked with TOPIX and tape measure), and get the right pads for the size of discs.

Let us know what you think of your new setup once you have it sorted.

I had some drilled discs on an Alfa several years ago and boy were they noisy when braking. Hopefully you won't have the same issue.

I fitted EBC Greenstuff pads to my Series 3 E Type, took them out and replaced with Mintex,after a month, couldn't stop the brake squeal Had some fitted to other cars previously, with no problems. I fitted them originally because of the low dust reputation

I fitted EBC RedStuff to my previous car because it was fairly fast & heavy (Zafira GSI Turbo) and I was pleased with them.
Less dust on the wheels and didn't seem to wear the discs as much as OEM pads so I would happily fit them again in the future.
Greenstuff is really for small cars and leave Yellowstuff, Bluestuff or Orangestuff for track use!
