I got a 2014 308 1.6hdi. It's had new discs and pads on the rear from the dealership around 5k miles ago and they have bearly been scratched. My question is what discs and pads do Peugeot use? And can I get them cheaper? As i need to do the fronts soon. Many thanks in advance.

I have found the cheapest way to get genuine Peugeot pads is to search EBay with the Peugeot part number, and to ensure the photo shows that number. You will also get hits on "equivalents", but I disregard those.

Btw, the reason the rears don't wear so much is that most of the braking is done by the fronts, by design.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I will have a look on eBay. So there isn't a specific brand of disc and pads they use?

My first 407 had the discs and pads replaced by the Peugeot dealer before I picked it up. It had TRW pads in it, so I'm assuming also TRW discs.
Whether or not this is what they would usually fit I'm unsure, but I vaguely recall seeing TRW stamps on the calipers on either that or my second 407.

If I'm doing it myself (which I have done on my RCZ) I buy Mintex.

Genuine parts are parts from producers like Brembo, ATE, Bosch, Bendix, Textar .... packed in Peugeot (or any other) branded package.

Correct, and when Peugeot pack those parts in THEIR boxes they add 25% + ? to the price. Find out who makes the particular part and buy it from a wholesaler.
Beware though! plenty of counterfeit stuff online.

The safest way is someone like GSF car parts who can supply O/E parts over the counter.

Peugeot have no interest in making these parts. As OEM's will make them for them much cheaper and they can switch suppliers easily. Usually multiple OEMs are used in case one goes bust or design changes are needed. The PSA bag is a mark up. Searching ebay for part number is not the best way as there will be sellers who use the part number for something that is not OEM. Clickbait..

GSF/Eurocar parts is best. PSA will not tell you who the OEM is. Valeo is often used by PSA group cars..

Ofcourse, all OEMs have to satisfy given caracteristisc and criteria. OEMs sometimes already have the wanted products and sometime have to developing. Dimensions and measures are not the only criteria.

This happens with every manufacturer and gets worse with the high end models.
I replaced the Behr OEM AC condenser on my Mercedes SL with an identical Behr unit supplied by GSF, even had the same markings stamped into the metal. Mercedes were asking over £500 for the part,I paid GSF £195.

Thank you all very much for the replys. I went down to my nearest parts shop and they told me this model has gone over to national now and sold me a set of Borg And Beck disks and pads for £90 took less than a hour to do both sides. Cup o tea time.

That's why I said make sure the part number is shown in the photo :idea:

That way you get "genuine" and a lower price.
