Changed front PCCB pads..


Recommended Posts

PCCB Brake pads replacement

Did the pads on my front PCCB's this weekend. Porsche brakes are so easy. With the help of my TT best friend Richard (he actually did all the work) it was done in an hour..

Probably the hardest thing is getting the connectors off the wear sensors without breaking them..

Based on his reccomendation i replaced the pads with the GT2, GT3 pads. (he has 2 TT's)

If you're wondering I have 57k on the car. Pads still had 30% wear left..My turbo expert friend told me to change them at this point. Apparently the pads get very hard at this wear point and can put undo stress on the ceramic rotors. And a $8k a pair we don't want that..

If you like working on your car and have the right tools this is a super easy job. Pads cost me $425 with backing plates.. The job is the same as steel brakes..

Dealer quoted me $1,650 for the fronts last time I had warranty work.. :jump: That's a nice mark up for them...

Have you considered changing the rears? While the lion's share of braking power comes up front, the rear pads are usually active in stability management and can wear just as fast as the fronts.

The rears don't need it yet. Still have 60% of pad material..
