As the title says i upgraded my 288mm brakes on my Boca to some 312mm ones
What u need is a set of carriers, caliper, disks and pads (the stock calipers that come with the cupra/boca are not quite right unlike i first thought)
I found out the hard way half way thought and had to try...
Gone to fit my 312mm's this morning, but noticed that the bolt that holds the original caliper to the original carrier is far too short to use on the 312s.
Should i have a different longer bolt for the 312s? sure i read somewhere you can re-use the original bolts.
Any help appreciated.
Im looking to do the 312mm upgrade. However people keep saying different things, will I need calipers and carriers, or just carriers. I have a pre-facelift Ibiza fr, with 288mm's as standard.
Also can you tell me how much your upgrades cost.
Ive been offered a pair of 312mm brakes with the carriers and calipers from a mk4 golf and wondered if there the same as a audi TT which was my first initial choice. I thought the mk4 golf calipers were the same as my mk 4 ibiza fr tdi ones except different size carriers.Or are the calipers...
I'm finally getting around to fitting the 312's to the FR. Bought some ATE power discs from Eurocarparts for £63 the pair and Pagid pads.
the question I have is will the banjo bolt from my LUCAS original calipers fit the new Audi TT calipers ?
or am I better off getting new ones to suit the...
I had my 312mm brake conversion done yesterday, so spent last night bedding them in per Bill's instruction on his sticky.
Came to work this morning and nearly rammed somones arse end (ooo-errr), the brakes feel much worse then my old 288mm setup.......so:-
Do the ferodo DS2500 pads only...
My arb link has snapped and took out the brake pipe flexi with it! So its now gushing brake fluid everywhere.. does anybody have a REG that i can use to order a new brake pipe flexi? This is pretty urgent as i need the car for college on Monday and its a right treck to get there...
Just had 312 brake upgrade done, the new TT hoses I supplied do not fit! They had to put the Ibiza ones back on. I know this makes it quite tight but is it acceptable? Provided I check them regularly? Otherwise does anyone have a link or can recommend hoses that definitly fit a Mk4 tdi FR but...
Got all my bits and pieces to go ahead with the 312mm brake upgrade, thanks to a couple of folk on here! Basically I've got the calipers from Leon mk1 180/Golfmk4/TT, and some Ferodo pads. I'm just wondering if I have the correct pads, they are the right size but one of each set of pads has the...
i'm going to tackle my 312mm conversion this week on my TDI (weather permitting ov course!)
I've got the following:-
Brembo MAX discs
Ferodo DS2500 pads
VAG 312mm Carriers + pins + seals
A couple spare bleed nipples
Caliper rewind tool
Things to still get:-
I had cause to punt my car round a track last weekend, and was expecting great things from it in terms of braking given how the brakes tend to be on the road.
However, I found the ABS was a bit too eager to kick in on certain corners... so I was just wondering if there was a way to adjust the...
I'm buying parts to do the conversion on my FR from 288 to 312.
I've been told that I only need Carriers,Discs and Pads,
I've searched the forum and looked at several pictures and I've noticed that my calipers dont look like the ones used on the 312mm conversions
mine say Lucas on them does...
I have an annoying issue. I fitted the Audi TT 312mm Front dics and calipers, I got some pads for them as well. Now the brakes work fine, they just fit under my 16's and they fitted like the guides and everyone said...except.........
The pad rattles and moves around like...
Hey guys! Long time no thread! ;)
I have searched as I know Gazjones had done a 312mm fitting guide, how easy is it to change the discs? Is it just a case of normal discs or is it like some of the newer cars where it's all part of the bearings?
Hopefully it's just like the old school...
went to swap the brakes today on the car. found a problem i couldnt get the old disc off,it looked it was held on by the drive shaft hub nut? if so any one know what size it is as its bigger then a 32mm socket (largest one i had) and also its a bi-hex nut
I have brembos fitted the the Leon FR i have recently bought, and am having problems with my brakes as per my previous post on here.
Ive been searching for discs on the internet this morning but the most common disc available for the cupra r brakes is 312mm??
I know i have...
Guys, I have the 280mm brake set up on my Leon and want to change to the 312mm set up, will I just need the calliper carrier or the 288mm/312mm calliper and carrier? I have been tols the callpier may be different to the 288mm item, cheers:)
