Brake help.

Postby TDiNumpty » Fri Aug 10, 2018 5:16 pm

Hi is there anywhere I can check exactly what brakes are on my Rocco? Without taking the wheels off? And if I have to take the wheel off where should the caliper be branded? 63 plate TDi Bluemotion. 140bhp version. Rears are gone. Fronts aren't very good. Standard ones scared the crap out of me in Milton Keynes the other year and cooked off. So need to get something better. Are solid Pagid or Brembo worth it? Or do I need to go Mtec?? Thanks for any help.

Should be a sticker in the boot with the code on it, any code decipher on the net will let you know what you need.

Thanks. Wish I knew. Took the wheels off to measure and check caliper manufacture. Just fitted some Pagid discs and pads on the rear today. Pretty easy considering I've never done it and a big saving on getting a garage to do it. Can't make my mind up on fronts now. ATE discs with ceramic pads or Mtec with yellow or green stuff pads. Don't like the brakes on the Rocco. Had complete fade last year scared the crap out of me
