    Can someone out there let me know what approximate cost to replace brake pads? If you can give me an estimate of what price range I should expect? I am in Italy and the brake light has come on and I want to get it checked out. But before I do I would like to know how much I should be looking at so I don't get ripped off?
    If I get to a suitable location I will check the brakes to see if I need just front, just back, or all four done.
    Thanks in advance

    just front, just back, or all four done.

    or maybe none at all.

    the light can mean a few things other than worn pads.............low fluid etc.

    a fully equipped workshop should take no more than 3/4 of an hour to do the front pads if nothing has seized up and probably not much more for the rears.
