Getting Brake Parts for 453

Was wondering if anyone has ordered from this website for parts? Seems to be one of the few places I can locate them. Havenít checked MB, figured they will be more expensive then getting from somewhere else.

Thanks!

I haven't had to replace brakes up to this point, but I'm getting close.

Jwight, did the brakes today. Went smooth overall and the parts worked great. The entire process was easy, sent them an email, they asked for vin number to confirm the parts. They sent me an invoice through PayPal and I paid. Had the parts within 5 days. I ordered directly from them and not through Amazon.

Rotor and Brake Pad Replacement

Hello. I received a RIDICULOUS quote from my dealer for the replacement of rotors and pads. I think I want to tackle the job myself with help from a friend. Do you know of a how-to video or article to which I can refer? Thanks in advance.

Iíve done brakes before but did find a video on you tube to see if there were any tricky parts, special tools etc. but wasnít. The pads and rotors I bought have working great. One thing that was frustrating was getting the clip back onto the caliper. Finally when I did the second side realized if I mounted the caliper first it was a lot easier to put the clip on.

Hi, I am looking to replace the front brakes on my 2016 passion with the 4 lug setup. I am having trouble finding the parts, can anyone help? The parts in the amazon link didn’t seem to match up exact. Thanks!!
