Jaguar brake discs/pads 2019 quality

Post by Borat1987 » Tue Nov 19, 2019 9:33 pm

Hi,

I’m going to my Jaguar maindealer to replace by front and tears discs and pads on my 2016 x260. The current original discs are corroded and haven’t lasted long 29,000 miles..... have Jaguar changed the makeup of the discs and pads? Are they a different quality or from a different supplier?

Many thanks

Dan

Mine is in today at my local independent having rear discs and pads done, originals only lasted 20k. Fronts are fine so not being touched.

The garage is a Mercedes independent and they were saying they have done a few XE rear discs and virtually all of them had bad corrosion mainly on the inner face of the disc.

I am having genuine parts fitted and hope the new bits are better than the originals fitted !

The total cost fitted by the garage is half the cost of having it done by a main dealer.

Tbh I didn't see the point in replacing the original discs with the same obvious poor quality ones from jaguar so I purchased coated discs on line along with ebc red stuff pads.
All of the corrosion on my original discs was on areas not in contact with the pads so I figured buying coated discs made sense. They were also a fraction of the price of originals.

To have the inner faces of the disc rusting and not the outer, seems to indicate sticking or seized slide pins. I only had one instance of this on my Rover 45 V6 when I assumed, incorrectly, that they were OK as both disc faces were shiny. I replaced the pad but the rusting part of the slide pins jammed the correct operation of the calipers. I only noticed this some months later when I took a wheel off to give it a super claen and polish and noticed that one of the pads was wearing at an angle and the inner face was rusting. Needless to say I renewed the discs and pads along with the slidepins. The total cost was around £50 from memory. I used to get parts trade then. My current JLR dealer gives me some discount now but parts for Jags are not cheap.

The car is out of warranty, but Jaguar have agreed to cover 75% of the cost, so will be £230ish for new front and rear discs/pads.

Obviously that’s a decent price and is probably be looking at at least twice that from an independent garage. That’s why I was trying to see if the quality had improved as I ideally don’t want to have to replace them in another 20-30k miles.

My rears are also shot approaching 20k which is disappointing, but seems to be a regular occurrence having done some forum reading... I've just had some Brembo discs and pads delivered as I've used and rated their stuff in the past - £155 for discs and pads, which I think is pretty decent. Have also bought some Mintex Ceratec compound and am going to DIY the job, so I know that it's been done properly! (main issues I can see are EPB release and piston wind back, but have got access to the right 'tools' for both)

You can't go wrong with Brembo discs. Standard fit on many cars. Good luck with your fitting.

I must admit I like the Jaguar OEM brake pads for the very small amount of dust produced. I spend less time having to clean my wheels on my XE than I have on any car I've owned with alloys and disc brakes.

In comparison, my Wife has an Audi Q3 and the wheels get completely covered in brake dust very quickly, (and I am the one who has to keep them clean).
