Hi All.. 996 Owners…
As I’m finding myself with time on my hands and not as much $$$ in my pocket, I was thinking of attempting my own Brake Pad change.
As my current track oriented pads have come to their end of life and are disturbing the neighborhood when I’m stopping, I’m thinking I need to change the pads. As the rotors are fresh, I’m hoping just pads needed for now.
As the estimate from the shop for street pad replacement is approx $1k, I thought I would explore doing it myself. As I’m looking to do track days in the future, I’m thinking this is something that would be great to be able to do it on my own.
My question is.. is this something I should consider .. I have some experience turning wrenches and an ok setup garage.
Do you have any suggested reading .. videos ..etc for doing this, just to make sure I do not miss anything particular to this car?
What Pads have you used that give at least decent stopping power on the track and not toooo much squeal on the street?…where do you source yours?
Anyone looking to .. train this apprentice??? .. I will provide … ???
