Yeti Gets New Discs And Pads

new brake rotors for skoda suv
It's when I upgraded my alloys that I noticed my brake discs and pads could all do with changing.
Let's get new brakes on my Yeti today.

Although I will get my trusted mechanic do the work I will buy everything myself

I always do. It stops him adding his mark-up!
The price he has quoted me for this work is 800czk (about £27), which is great.
I locate my brake pads and brake discs online and order them.
They arrive fast.

8:00 am is the agreed time and I'm at the mechanic's workshop exactly then; he is waiting for me.

He sets about his work immediately and sends my pride and joy into the air

Maybe these are the originals from 2010?

My mechanic is taking his time and is thorough, about 15 minutes each corner.
I like it.

He asks me to jump in and pump the brake pedal a few times until it feels right.
10:07 am and it's all over.
The casualty list...

Good times.

Thanks for visiting.
If you need Yeti brake pads they're available here on Amazon

Just a heads up: many of my posts contain affiliate links of products I have bought for my Yeti.
If you buy something from one of these links, you will not pay a penny more.
I will get a small commission, although not every time.
The extra pennies help me to pay the annual cost of the domain name.
I thank you for your support.

In His Own Words...
