Hi all, the time has come to replace my discs and pads on my 2004 K74 Classic Shape Warrior, as pads low and discs corroded.
Iíve looked on Milners and the do a complete set of discs, pads and pins for about £45.
A couple of questions here.
Are the Milners kits any good, or can someone recommend a good kit to use?
Is it a straight forward job, Iíve had a look on the technical how to section, and presumably I follow the front wheel bearing replacement section to get the discs on and off.
Any advice or tips to make the job easier will be greatly received.
Cheers Paul b

Hi many of us use Milners and their kits are of good quality, all depends on how much you are saving against the local motor factors if something is wrong or missing it's just down the road, when i did my disc there is a good youtube vide found it very helpful here's a link to part 1 of 5

Just be careful when you pull out the bolts that hold the calliper on as they have an 'O' ring at the end and can get stuck in the hole.

Hi all, my discs and pads turned up today, they look good, the only thing Iím not sure off, is 2 of the new pads have a shiny spring like bit of metal about 2mm thick on the bottom of them where they slide into the calliper , whereas my old pads did not.
It looks like a letter P with the flat bit, flat on the bottom of the pad pointing towards the disc. I took a picture but canít seem to upload it.
My question is do I remove it to match my old pads or do I leave it on?
Hope above makes sense
Cheers Paul.

if they fit with the shiny bit off metal leave it on, might be an anti squeal spring.

Thanks for your response.
As only 2 of the 4 pads have the metal bit on, would you fit the pad with the metal anti rattle on the piston side or the fixed side of the calliper?

Hi just had a look on Milners to see what's what, if the bit of metal is in an loop 90deg to the pad it might be for the brake wear sensor which i don't think you have, just had a look at a vid and they put it facing inwards at the bottom, anti squeal pad is the size of the pad and about 1mm thick.
