    Just getting a pair of back tyres fitted at Kwikfit and having brakes checked as were squealing. turns out that the back caliper has seized on the back nearside - result...disks warped and everything pads etc screwed.

    Apparently you have to replace the disks in pairs or the car will pull to one side, the disks also have shoes inside them for the handbrake?

    I'm waiting for a quote...but it's going to be horrific. Any ideas?

    I got the tyre quote from 320 to 200 by using a price match from mytyre.co.uk and hoping I can do something similar with this?

    Any advice, and quick, would be appreciated as I'm faced with an unroadworthy car and god knows how much they'll quote.

    Did you inspect it yourself? Kwik Fit are well known do work that is not required.

    Do you know if these are OEM parts?

    They are aftermarket but guaranteed OEM standards....12 months guarantee on disks, lifetime free replacement on pads.....but it's still ~£500

    Pads and discs are relatively straight forward to change...something you want to do yourself? We can help.

    I appreciate it but it's also a timing thing. If I can get pricing on the parts then I can price match and make it manageable..... Any help on listing and pricing the components would be a great help. The pads may be fixed as they have this free replacement for life thing but if I can prove lower prices on the other parts that would really help.....
