Hi everyone, I am a canyon drive lover with 2007 Exige S and still learning about the car!:eek:

I've just got new tires last week and now I need to get new brakes. Luckily I got a very handy friend who knows how to replace the brake pads and I am going to try to change the brakes for my Exige under his supervision.

Now I need to get the brake pads, and have googled but I couldn't figure out what kind of brakes I need to get, or where I can get those from. :confused:

Could anyone help me, please?:bow:
Thank you!!

welcome :wave:

pictures of the car is necessary :p

Next time: I would say to post your question in the Exige Section, that way more people will check your thread and reply faster. Search threads here for brake related stuff, and make your threat title "brake help?" or something similar. When people here see the thread title, "Hi everyone, I'm new here with a question!:) " they assume that its a newbie with a everyday question.

Hi Yuki

Good for you on doing the work yourself. The front brakes are vary EZ to do. The rear are what I call medium EZ.

Be sure to have some needle nose pliers for the rear. You will need them to screw in the rear piston.

Look up … Uberpost read this… much of what you want/need to know is in there,and look up/in sandsmuseum for how to stuff/help.

One more thing…. you need to post some pics:shift:

Thank you so much! ;)

First, I would like to thank you all for replying to my thread! Arigato~;)
I'll post my question to the right place next time properly!

I'm gonna order the Pagid blues RS 4-2 later and make sure to have some needle nose pliers for the rear.

Thank you, again!

Hi everyone!

serpent:
I didn't take your advice as a knock!;) It totally makes sense and I really appreciate it! btw, it's me in the picture at a park in Palos Verdes.

Thanks for the link!
I just placed my order of Pagid RS Blue on the Sector 111~

Chapster5:
I've been told that I needed to post my pic, so I posted a pic of myself. Next time, I'll post my Exige pic with my sexy female friends so that I might be able to get more replies! :p

Green Ghost:
You're right! It's a girls name. Thanks for your very useful advice for the works earlier. :)

Hi Yuki.
PV is where I grew up, and what park in PV is that?
You need to meet up with the Marina Del Ray coffee group every now and then. Good drive through the hills after every one gets organized.

Go to >>> Meets & events >>> Los Angeles Sunday drive

Otherwise maybe (hopefully) see you when I‘m in PV.

Before you are order the pads measure the brake rotor thickness too as you may need new rotors at the same time. Minimum service thickness is 24.9mm and you should be able to measure without removing the wheel.


PS: I've moved this thread into the correct (brakes) forum but left a shortcut in "I'm New" :)
