Rear Brake Change

Hi guys,

My rear brakes have started squeeking a little so it sounds like I probably need to get the shoes changed.

I'm not great with the technical side of cars but my Dad is. He usually helps me buy the parts and shows me how to do this sort of thing.

Not got alot of time right now to do them myself so was just going to book it into a garage and get it done.

Anyone got any idea how much this sort of job will cost me?

Always hear horror stories about being ripped off so just wanted a rough figure to work from.

Cheers!

Re: Rear Brake Change

1-2 hr labour and parts, say 120-200 depending on the cost, ask for a breakdown
