2004 C-Max 1.6TDCi zetec - Front discs and pads replacement - debaser

Due to a few hefty garage bills I've decided to replace the front discs and pads on my c-max myself. I am quite mechanically able although I haven't done much work on anything newer than a 1990! I would be grateful if anyone has any advice on changing discs & pads on c-max / mk2 focus - such as do I need any specialist tools and are they pretty straightforward to do?

Thanks

You may need to check the size of the discs before you can order them. Some suppliers seem to list either 278mm or 300 mm- and there seems no reason why some are fitted with the smaller, some the latter. Pads should be all the same.

I have just replaced the discs (ventilated type) & pads on my 1600 petrol Finesse, I assume they are similar to yours.

Pads were about £ 27 the pair & pads about £ 28.not Ford dealer prices BTW.

Time taken was about .1.5 hours, no special tools required

Good luck
