Brakes

HI Gentlemen.

I just need some advise on work done on my Paj lwb 3.5

1. Is this a fair price? Which I think.

2. The Technician did not advise that he will fit the Ferodo brake pads. On previous occasions i heard that there is pros nd cons regarding Ferodo pads. Is it true? Shall I have it changed with something else? If so, what brand pads is suitable for my Pajero?
The FORUM input is always valuable to me.
Thanking you.
Cheers.

That looks OK pricewise I would think? It seems that all 4 wheels' brake pads were replaced plus new disks all round? Plus they changed the brake fluid. What was the caliper overhaul about? That seems expensive.

On Ferodo I can't comment. I think they are a well known brand so should be OK. I like original Mitsubishi as they are less prone to noise and brake dust, but I think Ferodo will probably work well enough on the brake department so I would leave as is for now.

Thank you Cats.

The cost look like reasonable.

Will keep the Ferodo disc pads until next time. I agree the original Mitsubishi pads is preferable the way to go.

The Technican explained ( over the phone ) that the calipers do not operate as they should. And the way forward was to have them overhauled. Not sure what the actual defects on the calipers.
What I can see is. They look like "brand new" and match the new rotating discs.
Once again thank you Cats.
