I have a T31. Amazed that the pads were 40% left after 73,000 KM. For peace of mind I replaced them myself with BENDIX pads. F & B cost $165 on special from Repco. Nissan quoted over $500. Very easy to replace.



That T31 Brake Pads thread is HERE, please copy the information across to an existing thread, so we can leave this one for the T30 guys.

Re: Replacement Brakes


I was told at my last service that there's only about 5000km left on the front pads of my T30. I just asked for a price on a set of front pads from the parts counter at Nissan - $202.32. Supply only.

Looking on Ebay, I reckon I'll be buying a set of RDA extremes. I can get pads and rotors for less than that.

Re: Brake Service


Here in Rio, Brazil, 1ve just had a good cheap (i.e. non-Nissan) brake specialist change the brake fluid on my t30 GX 2.5 petrol, 2007/8 that had done 82,000 km. I had FRASLE pads put in the front, but, due to difficulty in finding them, the rear pads had to be made from the existing ones, that is, if I didn't want to pay a fortune at the Nissan dealer or wait to get them via the local equivalent of e-Bay. I bet few of my fellow members would even consider this solution.

They offered to change the discs (don't like to call them rotors - that's for helicopters !) too, but my theory as an unqualified, but reasonably deft, mechanic (ever since that Meccano set !), is that, if they are not worn too thin, once the new pads have bedded in, the scored grooves actually increase the area of contact and so improve braking power. I'd be very interested to hear any mechanical engineer's reaction to this.

Cheers,
BRIAN

Re: T30 Replacement Brakes


Hi, I replied to you on your query regarding DIY ATF change.
I had my rotors trued on a lathe.
They had developed an inner bed .
The thing with rotors is that if they are not true...this can cause excessive heat warping and vibration.
Besides, with new pads and worn rotors, there will be uneven pressure, uneven heat and that's not good.
Both surfaces should mate as flat and as true as possible.
