    Posted: 13 Jun 2018 at 1:30pm
Just wondering what the average price for brake pads (may as well do discs as well) and a new clutch on a vw up, it's 2012.

Private garage and main dealer prices

What's the average mileage that both need replacing? My up is on 52000 and I've only recently purchased it, no past receipts.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I would have thought the clutch should last about 100000 miles ish, just depends on how the car is driven. The brakes are also dependant on how the car is driven.

Have you had the brakes check by a garage? kwik-fit do a free brake inspection, yes it's kwik-fit and am sure someone will complain about them but they will do it for free and give a quote.  

VWs website fixed price section quotes £289 for discs and pads

As for the clutch, do you think it is faulty?

If you took to a independent garage then probably looking around £150 front pads and discs including labour, as for clutch kit including labour as well £350ish?

discs and pads (pagid) can be picked up from £50-£60 posted online usually allways on offer here or there GSF car parts or Euro or ebay.

installation doesnt get much easier than on these Up!'s. about an hours job max and that includes a proper job including cleaning everything up and greasing where required which your average garage wont do. ohh can do a full brake fluid flush which is also due every 2 years as brake fluid is hydroscopic meaning it absorbs water so needs to be changed every 2 years regardless of use...
brake fluid will costa bout £6 for 1liters. will require about 800ml for a complete flush.

Although brake fluid is hydroscopic, there is no need to change the fluid every 2 years if the system remains sealed.

My current Panda 100HP has never had a brake fluid change in it's life (it's 10 years old) and the brake work perfectly fine.

Agreed, had my previous car for 11 years, never changed the brake fluid, never had any problems braking.
