Hey guys,

My Astra has had a service at Vauxhall today and I they have told me I need new discs on the front and pads all around.

I am not paying the £380 to do that so I am trying to find some front discs and pads on all 4 corners.

Pads are straight forward but when looking for Discs it asks the wheel size.  I have 18" as standard but that's not an option on sites like euro car parts.

Do I just get the 17" variant?

I can change the pads and discs myself. just need to know which ones to buy. Any links would be appreciated.

its a 2011, 2.0 cdti SRI.

thanks in advanced.

I have bought my discs and pads, Now another question with fitting them, Is it a case of move the calliper housing out the way then the calliper bracket. Remove the hex screw and give the disc some gentle persuasion to come off?

yeah I have seen the pads one, they straight forward, it was how to remove the disc but I think it the same as the Astra H so will be fine.
