Got mine changed at a local garage, and he said that they were a new type and a little bit diff. Never had this prob before, but then never bought a new model car before either.

Don't know what the diff is, but beware, as it may not be as simple as first thought out. :?

My dad did mine as he's a mechanic, he said that they were pretty straight forward :)

Vauxhall told me that i needed new pads and discs, they quoted me £130 plus labour and vat. I just laughed and walked out :lol: My pads were only £15 and it turned out that my discs didn't need changing :?
