Brake Disc Replacement with Car Service and Repair
What is the minimum legal brake disc thickness?
Brake discs must be at least 3mm thick. It would be risky to drive the vehicle if it fell below 3mm, since it may harm the rest of the vehicle's components. You may even fail the MOT if your thickness is less than the required minimum.
When it comes to brake discs, how long do they last?
Normally, brake discs last between 80,000 and 120,000 miles. The state of the discs is determined by how they are driven. By driving cautiously and using the brakes slowly, you may extend the life of your brake discs. Sharp turns and reckless driving can cause parts of the car to be damaged.
How much does it cost to have brake pads and discs replaced?
The average cost of replacing the front brake disc and pads is £224. The cost might vary from £140 to £400. The repair of the back brake disc and pads costs £249. It might also be anything from £140 and £400. The cost varies depending on the vehicle's make and model.

What exactly are brake discs?
A brake disc is a metal (or carbon composite) disc that is linked to a car's suspension and gripped by brake pads contained in a brake calliper.
What are the functions of brake discs?
A disc brake is a form of brake that creates friction by squeezing pairs of pads against a disc using callipers. This operation has an effect on the spinning of a shaft, slowing it down or bringing the vehicle to a complete stop.
The friction between the braking disc and the pads is what brings the vehicle to a halt. Because it dissipates heat fast, the brake disc offers various benefits over the brake drum, resulting in powerful and consistent braking performance.
What are the signs and symptoms of brake disc failure?
The following are some of the signs and symptoms of defective brake discs:
- The brake light is on.
- Noises of squealing, grinding, or squeaking
- When braking, you may notice wobbling, scraping, or vibration.
- Lubricant leaking
- Brake pedals that are mushy or soft
- When braking, the car pulls to one side.
When brake discs become worn, what happens?
A worn-out disc can be identified by a burr around the rim. A larger burr indicates that the disc is wearing down faster. Experts utilise certain instruments to determine the thickness of the brake discs.
It will be difficult to slow or stop the vehicle if the braking discs, pads, or callipers are worn out. The tyres will also wear down faster as a result of all the effort braking.
When should brake discs be replaced?
Once you see cracks and markings on your brake discs, it's time to replace them. It is a good idea to inspect the brakes on a regular basis and search for any noticeable cracks or markings. The minimal thickness might also be a basis for replacement. If your brake pads are less than 3mm thick, they must be replaced together with the braking discs.
When replacing brake pads and discs, how long does it take?
Various sections of the braking system may need to be replaced when the brake discs and pads are being replaced. A experienced technician might take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour to replace all of these components.
Is it possible to replace brake discs without replacing pads?
People frequently inquire as to why brake discs can't be changed without brake pads. There are a couple of reasons behind this. The most important reason is that if you only replace the discs, the new discs will wear unevenly due to the old brake pads, causing the discs to be damaged.
It is strongly suggested to replace the brake disc and pads at the same time to guarantee a consistent, safe, and smooth braking system.
