    Hi there

    I've got a problem with my 10 year old Clio which has started to brake squeal basically along with the brake pedal shaking furiously i.e. a potential safety hazard. My only question is, how much does it roughly cost to repair the brakes? even if it's just the pads, discs, calipers, rotors, etc?

    I'd say about £150 if you do both the calipers and the discs

    Discs and rotors are different names for the same thing. The calipers are highly unlikely to be the cause. Sounds like you may have a warped rotor or uneven wear/deposition on the discs - if so you'll need new pads and discs in all likelihood, though probably just the fronts. I'd budget closer to £200 - I paid £160 for pads and discs for a Z3 with 20% off recently, and that doesn't include fitting (though that is all corners).
