Which rear pads
« on: May 20, 2017, 07:55:50 AM »
Europarts brings up 2 different shapes of rear brake pads when I enter my reg on their site.

Can anyone tell me which are the correct ones please top or bottom?:

Looking at the difference in shapes of the two pads (which is slight) I'm speculating that the upper one may fit a smaller diameter disc but I don't know that. Have you looked at the 'fitment detail' tab to see if there's any info in there which will help you distinguish- different disc diameters etc? Usually there is more than one option due to more than one disc diameter being fitted to a particular model of vehicle (eg, sport and standard spec brakes, or to higher powered versions). Sometimes even different manufacturer's braking systems are used on different spec vehicles or when changes in the production run occur.

Ultimately if you can't find any additional info to help you distinguish then you may need to whip a rear caliper off quickly to study the pad profile- that's what I did with the last set of pads I changed the other day when there were multiple options- took a picture of the shape of one of the old pads to compare with the images on the website. Sometimes there's also a drawing of the pad with dimensions quoted.

Or if you still cannot determine correct pads go down euros and get both types then take unused ones back. I did that when I changed some rear pads as car age was right on changeover so could have been either.

Although you've chosen Eicher pads, the ones illustrated are Pagid.  Do not make judgements going by the pictures appearing on websites.....

if you bring up the fitment details section it tells you that one is for a standard manual handbrake and one is for the electric handbrake version
