Hello group.

I am looking to replace the front and rear disks on my 2012 Mondeo 2.0 163 tdi 64k miles (plus change(

I have found these on eBay and am wondering if they are a decent make?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-MONDEO-MK4-07-15-FRONT-REAR-DRILLED-GROOVED-BRAKE-DISCS-MINTEX-PADS/390556405940?hash=item5aeef9d0b4:g:qLkAAOSwDClepKhI

Halfords sell a Pagid set for £216, I am wondering if the Mintex are better (as well as slightly cheaper). I had a garage fit a set of fronts about a year ago and they are warped already, so I assume they were cheap ones. I wanted something middle of the roads decent (I don't drive fast and it isn't a performance car!)

Any advice much appreciated.

I wouldn't use drilled and/or grooved discs unless that type are fitted on factory production. Your e bay advert does not say who the manufacturer of the discs is, could be any rubbish.
Safest/best results are genuine Ford discs.
To avoid future judder, before fitting new discs ensure the hub faces are rust free and spotlessly clean

I actually didn't notice that the disks are not branded, I assumed it was all mintex kit. Thanks for the help, will see if I can fine genuine ones, I assume just call a parts department

Hi Ash, put your vin number into here and it should, repeat should, only come up with parts applicable for your vehicle.

https://www.catcar.info/ford/?lang=en

Go into the brakes section - obtain the Ford part number for the discs - put that Ford part number into the E Bay Search box - you maybe lucky, some Ford dealers advertise good prices for genuine Ford parts on e bay

Looks like they maybe all the same part number 1500159, looks like around £112 from Ford dealers on e bay - could try a dealer direct in these times

Brake discs are generally ok, I’d advise a fairly decent brand but the brake pads I’d only use genuine Ford. Cheap brake pads cause all sorts of issues, and the likes of Mintex and Pagid are not quality parts.

Just wanted to add - Used paid for last 12 years and never had an issue.
Pagid are made by TMD friction - one of the world's largest portfolio's of brake disks and pads.
TMD friction also make and sell Textar, Mintex, Don, Bendix and three other brands that I struggle to spell 😃

I believe ECP have the rights to sell Pagid road car brake disks and pads in the UK. (TMD links to ECP website as their main retail outlet). You can buy the brand in other places, but tends to be the more specialist / high performance stuff.
