Price for rear brake pad replacement.

Hello, I purchased my Fiat Stilo 1.4, 53 plate with around 60k miles around mid January and everything was fine.

It's a great car but the rear right brake is starting to whine heavily so I took it to my local brake specialist place who quoted me 90 for them to fix it.

Is that a little steep? Or is it reasonable? I don't want to mess around with it myself in case I break something.

Thanks, any information is appreciated.

Regards
Craig

Steep I think.

I got a set of Bosch rear pads for 28, and paid 20 for my local garage to fit.

Thank you for replying.

I thought it may have been a little steep. I've seen these on Ebay and I may purchase them and then ask them to fit them at a much cheaper rate. If they don't, I'll probably find a friend.

What are these pads like? I heard Brembo are an amazing brand.

Steep by do it yourself standards but reasonable compared to dealer charges.

I fitted EBC Ultimax on mine, excellent value, done about 15k on them and no problems what so ever.

Only issue is back brakes are a pig, you need the correct wind back tool, which I had and even with this I spent 7 long hours doing my back brakes. Granted I had breaks to rethink what I was doing. (granted I did clean up the calipers while I was at it).

Front pads on the other hand, a skoosh, you'll have them done in an 2 hours taking your time and cleaning everything up.
