The average lifespan for brake discs is expressed as the number of miles on the clock after they have been fitted. It is recommended to replace the brake discs on your Vauxhall VECTRA approximately every 30,000 miles. Beyond this distance, your brakes may be deficient. In the case of emergency braking, remember that with worn brakes, the stopping distance is longer.
If you wish to order new VECTRA discs, Mister-Auto offers the best brands: BOSCH, TRW, VALEO, BREMBO and FERODO discs, and even BÖLK, Mister-Auto’s own brand of disc! To give an idea of price, a set of 2 Vauxhall VECTRA brake discs will cost, on average, between £20 and £60; prices may vary according to the model of your Vauxhall.
You can simply check the degree of wear on your own VECTRA brake discs, based on the minimal disc thickness rating. The manufacturer defines this rating and it is indicated in the technical manual that accompanies your new front or rear brake discs. The minimum thickness wear rating will vary according to the type of disc. Please ensure that you change your Vauxhall VECTRA discs when wear and tear exceeds the minimum degree for an effective braking system.
Recent models of vehicle are often designed to help you anticipate this wear. A warning light will be illuminated on the dashboard of your VECTRA when the brake system needs to be checked. Furthermore, you can learn to recognise certain suspicious sounds or unusual vibrations in your Vauxhall VECTRA. Among the warning signs, especially watch out for any shrill grinding noise while braking, or vibration when stopping the vehicle. You should also pay attention to any scratches or smudges on the discs, or grooves inside them. An abnormal tendency for your vehicle to “pull” to one side while braking may also be a sign of wear.
