I need the rear brakes doing on my 206, does anyone know what is a good price to pay?

Going to ring around a few garages for a few prices but just dont want to get ripped off.

Drums or disc?

Pads or shoes?

Guy done my rear shoes for £20 each.

Bristol. I got a mate that can do the front ones, just not the rear ones.

Drums i think.

Is it the drums that need doing or just the shoes? I would say you would get away with just doing the shoes unless there is a massive lip on the drums. Either way they are a piece of ****. Found them easier than doing my front brakes (why I paid someone else to do them).

Why not the rears? It's probably easier to do the rears as I would have thought the 206 (depending on the mk and model) had drums instead of discs.

I would have suggested somewhere closer to me but that's a little too far to travel.

Just checking you didn't take it to one of those large garage chains? Nationwide, Kwikfit similar? They always say you need new brakes.

I have not taken it anywhere, i had my mate check the front (then i noticed it was the same as scooter brakes and just a pin that i could do myself), he said he didnt know how to do the back but the fronts were fine.

I have not taken it anywhere yet, im hoping i could get away with just shoes. Are shoes easy to replace then?

wow that site is good £20 for set of brake shoes, wonder if that is for the pair or just one.

If it says set I would say 2, but I would ring them to check.

I did it at night at work, took about an hour each side. The hardest part was getting the springs back on, expect cut knuckles. I did my 96 Golf so it may be harder easier, probably easier knowing how rubbish french cars are :-D

Don't breath the dust.
