Do It Yourself: Yes
- RM220 – Brembo brake disc
- RM220 – Peugeot brake pad
- RM10 – Workshop renting cost
Since I did not have heavy tools necessary for this job, I’ve to resort to use my mechanic’s workshop. RM10 is for the 2 hours workshop space and a few other consumable parts used.
Here are the part pictures…

|The brake disc|
|The part number, the number is for Citroen ZX 1.6 to 1.9 series but the dimension is same as our Lion|
Now the processes.
Tools needed for this task…
- T30 and T55 torx
- No. 13 spanner
- Steel hammer
- Suitable car hydraulic jack
- Steel wire brush
- Thread locker fluid
From the picture above, use no. 13 spanner to undo the the bottom screw which secure the piston. Swing the piston upwards.
|Pictures above showed how thin the pads and the depth of the groove|
Use steel hammer to loosen up the rust build up if the disc does not budge from the hub.
Use steel wire brush to remove rust residue on the hub.
|The new and old brake discs|
The two dots on the surface of the new disc is the thickness indicator. Brembo called it “Easy Check”. If both dots missing, time to change the disc. Before mounting the disc to the hub, the disc need to be cleaned with petrol or any other suitable cleaning agent to remove anti-rust grease.

- The brake pads come with 2 sets of different part. Part that ends with 299 is for the right side of the disc surface if you looking it from the front of the car. So, it will be the outer surface for left wheel brake disc and inner surface for the right wheel brake disc.
