Thread: Brake caliper pretty please

    Brake caliper pretty please

    Hi guys I'm having difficulty in getting the right caliper for my 93 2008 vector sport 120bhp 1.9tdi.
    It's the n/s (passenger side) front caliper
    I look online and they say it will fit my car but it doesn't look the same and takes different spring clip thingies? Any help would be much appreciated.
    I can see it has fn3 57/25 stamped into it but that number still comes up with different patients, it's a 15" caliper for a 285 Rota.
    Thanks again

    Thanks folks do you know if these calipers use the flat wire retainer or the thin round wire? I'm after the thin wire if possible?

    This is the one I need but want it returned or new. It has the round wire spring.
    I think the 2 that you guys have shown me use a flat wire spring.

    It seems that the caliper in the photo you have supplied, isn't the same as either I or aerojon linked you to. Your caliper appears to be the same as fitted to my own car, in which case it uses the thin wire tension spring. So check and then double check which caliper is fitted to your own car. On the caliper I think you have, you should have 781 stamped on it also. If this is the case, ignore the link to the caliper I gave in my previous post.

    You need to be absolutely sure which caliper is fitted to your car

    Yes that's the springs and I'm sure my caliper has the 781 printed on there and sorry about the picture it's the best I could get at the moment.

    So as per aerojon's link, but don't forget, there's postage on top of that.
