Brake pads for Renault Megane 2: which are better, prices and part numbers

The replacement of brake pads on the Renault Megane Gen 2 is not regulated by the manufacturer.

The selection of pads on Megane 2 is complicated by the fact that during the release of a second-generation car has changed a few bodies, collected at different plants, in addition, the size and part numbers depend on the type of engine. How to choose and replace the brake pads on the second Megan, we will understand right now.

When to change the brake pads on Megane II

The squeaking and whistling of the brake pads may not always be an indication of wear and tear. Rather, it is the wrong choice. It’s all about the material from which the friction lining is made. If the material does not comply with the technology of manufacture, and has foreign inclusions of hard metals, the squeaking even of new pads will be inevitable.

The pads were clearly over their service life.

On a Megane II, pads can last up to 30,000 km on average. Their service life strongly depends on the condition of the braking system as a whole, on the quality of the pads, on the degree of wear of the brake disc, and on the driving style. Naturally, with an aggressive driving style, we press the brakes more often, so the pads wear out more intensively.

On the composition and features of the choice of brake pads we have already told in detail in this material. Specifically for Renault Megane second generation most often prefer to buy either original pads, or the most well-known companies – ATE, Remsa or TRW.

For example, TRW pads are great for quiet riders. If the package does not have the index S, the pads have a lapping layer and work almost silently throughout their life. Pads with a specified index are made in China, and are much cheaper, but it is better not to risk the quality.

Even more often you can get Chinese-made pads Sangsin and NiBK. Francecar pads should be put only before sale or when there is no money at all, they do not run well, wear out quickly and emit a lot of dust when worn.
