hi everyone..My MOT is due in August and would like some info on the following if poss......
the front brake discs appear to be pitted with spots of rust the car is a volvo v70 1998...the car was bought 3 wks ago by myself so how long it had been standing for am not sure ,but I dont think it was that long...It gets driven most days and there is still the rust spots ...bakes are fine with no pulling to one side or grinding of pads, so any help here would be most helpfull...also if needs replacing a rough guide to how much for a pair + pads...

many thanks...

rough guide for discs and pads.
discs ~ £70 for a pair
pads ~ £25
brake fluid ~ £5

couple of hours to fit

try giving the brakes a hard time see i you can remove the rest of the rust. if there is a lip on the discs you might as well change them

With use as the disc wears the rust will dissapear. I know my brakes get rusty every time it rains but the surface rust is gone withing a few brakes.
