Front brake pads different sizes
« on: March 20, 2018, 07:13:02 PM »
I'm looking at changing front pads on my 2007 1.8 Galaxy TDCi Zetec but looking at CarParts4less they have two different sizes.  My Haynes manual doesn't mention anything about sizes so I'm a little confused :-\ (nothing new there I hear you say! ::))  Any comments please.

You can sometimes isolate the right part using eurocarparts website lookup - They typically give build date ranges on parts. This doesn't always work (sometimes you just can't tell from the given info). The seller should be able to advise if they will fit though.

Thanks Brian.
 
However, I took the old ones into Europarts who had a 45% discount at the time and they brought out some Pagid pads which were the same size ;D.
 
Later I looked at Carparts4less website and entered the same reference ( I know they are part of Europarts ;)) and although the basic price was lower, they had a discount but the final difference between the two was only pence!

So alls well that ends well. :)

Yeah that sounds about right - Provided you can order at the weekend ECP normally have some sort of discount code going to make it cheaper. Sometimes in the week, but usually most weekends they are cheaper.
