    Arrow SRi Turbo brake calipers

    I have a slight problem, if you can help I would be very greatful

    I have a 2002 SRiT and I have attempted to bleed my brakes, the nipple on the caliper has snapped.

    I will be attempting to remove the thread out of the caliper, if I am successful am I able to buy just a bleed nipple online or from vauxhall?

    If I fail, where is the best place to buy a new caliper?

    if anyone can help please post part numbers and links to online sellers if possible


    thanks in advance for your help

    unforunately the nipples don't seal on the threads they have a taper on the end and a seat in the caliper.

    You could try drilling part way and using an easyout, but unlikely as you've snapped the nipple it'll be very tight.

    Asssuming they are 308s, the calipers are used on VectraBs, AstraGs etc, so easy to find in breakers.

    I think I have found a cheap caliper off a vectra b, how can I tell if it wil fit my astra, the only info available is

    Vauxhall Vectra B/Facelift O/S/F_Drivers Brake Caliper (95-01)
    Suitable for Vectra B'/Facelift' Between 1995-2001.

    do all vectra b use 308mm setup?
