    Which style brake pads?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking to change my brake pads and discs on my 1.8 Astra Sport '99 but I'm not sure what style pad I need without taking it all off. Has anyone any idea?:

    Much appreciated!

    theres actually only 2 types of rear caliper used on the mk4 unlike that listing suggests

    Bosch calipers were fitted to early models (so likely this is what u have) they have 4 telltale ridges on the caliper


    Lucas are smooth bodied (sounds like a pint lol)

    If you have ABS then youll have 5 stud 264mm discs
    non ABS 1.8 models used the smaller 240mm 4 stud discs

    Once you establish the above then just tell the seller Lucas/Bosch 4/5 stud and they will ensure the correct ones sent.

    Thank you for the excellent reply! As you correctly guessed, I have Bosch calipers on the rear.
    I assume that implies that's the same for the fronts? My front calipers don't have the ridges...

    Cheers

    Front calipers are ATE on all models

    have u got 4 or 5 studs?

    4 studs are 256mm and 5 studs 280mm on the fronts

    Hope to god u aint got 4studs as the 256mm setup is truly dire.
