Brakes - ECP
« on: 12 April 2021, 15:22:35 »

Just looking at getting new Disks etc (If required)

Eurocarparts are offering Brembo/Pagid & Eicher plus some random Bosch fitment parts.

I priced my list up using the Pagid bits with new sensors, all new pins & spring plates (Plus disks & Pads but not shoes) With the discount 189

Fuel & pollen fillers

Seems they offer 2 of each

Example

Crosland Cabin Filter
Product Code: 507720038
27.99

Crosland Cabin Filter
Product Code: 507720128
2.39

Standard v Activated Carbon

Is there a massive difference.?

If you have F/L it needs carbon activated filter, or the climate control goes funny.

 For brakes and discs give Keithabs a pm he quite often has some good deals,and GM pads. :y

Also, you can also try your local factors.

Mostly ECP now sell low quality stuff, which always makes me wary when it comes to brakes.

I generally do.

But sadly these days I have to have the car sorted at a local garage and generally when I can source the parts myself.  I have just lost track of prices and which brands to run with or avoid.  and sadly the brakes are suffering more from rust on the disks wearing the pads out than actually using the car.

I have said before in other 'which brake discs/ pads' topics, and others have confirmed their approval of them - Comline coated discs are exceptionally good quality at a competitive price. They do their own pads and also box the same pad as Allied Nippon.
I have fitted a good number of them to different vehicles and no complaints about their performance and appearance (being coated) at all.

If that 190 is for all four discs, pads and the fittings, I wouldn't hesitate. The price is reasonable, and ECP are convenient.
I'd probably add the handbrake shoes for another 20 if they haven't been done in the last decade...

I recently fitted a pair of Brembo front discs from ECP to my Omega and am very happy with them.

Yes all in and free delivery I believe

I never actually use the hand brake so didnt bother adding that or rear shos to the list.

You should use it  ;)

it's also the emergency brake if you loose brake fluid
and
 relying on a 5 mm slither of metal (the park pawl in the auto box ) to hold 2 ton of car isn't wise
and
using the handbrake keeps it free and moving for the MOT brake test

now well get 20 posts saying "I never use my handbrake and never had any issues"  :D

It's required for an MOT.


The shoes don't wear out, but the linings can come unglued.


You have to adjust the shoes to get the disc off, and it's frustrating to have to stop work and acquire another part.


This makes the rear brakes fit and forget for several years.


I agree with all of Dave's post

The handbrake is pulled on and realeased every now and again.

The car is hardley used and after advice given many years ago about parking a car up in gear, hand brake off and bricks to stop the wheels rotateing then I do the next best thing.

The car is parked on the level in Park and when it went for the MOT in Dec last year when the handbrake was applied I thought the car was going to fly off the rollers, Brake efficiency was brilliant.

I'm with Skrunts .... I rarely use a hand/emergency/parking brake & have never had any issues  ::)

If parked on a hill it's used to hold the car before selecting Park  :y
