Help with brake sizes??

by MartyG » Wed Aug 27, 2008 1:52 pm

Hey everyone, my car has it's MOT tomoro, and it needs brakes all round, now it seems when i call up places for some prices they can't just tell me from the year of the car... there asking the size of the discs. they give me 2 sizes to choose from.. i've been saying the smalled one because i assumed the larger was for the V6?

Can anyone tell me the size of front and back discs on a 2.0 16v non turbo.

Also they said there is 2 choices for rear discs... with or without hub?

Thanks in advance

As far as I know there is only 1 type of rear disc for the Cally, I've also checked on the web and only 1 rear type is listed.

Looking at the web link there is only 1 type for your year and engine.

Might be worth waiting to see if anyone else comes up with anything else before ordering yours.

Funny that - My turbo has bigger then normal trurbo pads and calipers. Each time I go for them I have to get vectra V6 Pads and the calipers I could only buy from vauxhall as all the motor factors have the wrong size (too small) either that or vauxhall upgraded the brakes on teh LE to Vectra V6 spec?
