    Default Brake sizes - 3.0 V6 CDTI

    Hey guys

    Just found out the car needs its brakes done and i need to confirm the sizes.

    As above, car is a 54 reg, 3.0 V6 CDTI.

    I've done a search and found this:

    There are actually three sizes of front brake discs for the Vectra C :
    285mm - all models, except as below
    302mm - 2.0T
    314mm - 3.2 V6 / 3.0 CDTI V6 / 2.8T


    Two for rear brake discs :
    278mm (solid) - all models, except as below
    292mm (vented) - 2.0T / 3.2 V6 / 3.0 CDTI V6


    Can anyone confirm if this is correct above? How do i find out if the rears are vented? - If they measure 292mm, will they definately be vented?

    Many thanks

    Gaz

    yes thats correct. I'm fairly sure that if you look at them you will be able to see the vents.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Plug the numbers into Google, you'll be suprised what turns what as how cheap you can get them through some websites mate, but the front pad and disc kit is only £72+VAT from the dealers. The rears are worth shopping around for if you can find somewhere that delivers...

    Thanks guys

    Penfold101 - My local dealer has quoted me £145 incl VAt and fitting for the front discs and pads alone, so i've contacted some local motor factors and one on ebay i've used before. Best price there is £83 front discs and pads, £53 rear discs & pads. May well go with them after i've got another price for fitting.

    Where abouts in south wales are you mate? I'm only across near Oxford so if you were near the border it wouldn't be ridiculous to come and do them for you some time, unless you wanted the peace of mind from a garage...

    I'm just outside Cardiff mate, about 2 hours away.

    Thank you for the great and very kind offer, surely you would want some money for fitting though? Truth is we're looking to sell the car as soon as these are done as its just not suitable for us anymore, so any money saved on fitting would be a bonus.

    I take it you do this sort of job for a living?

    I'm actually an aircraft engineer in the RAF, but I've done my own brakes enough times and helped others on here as I know the setup inside out now...

    Give me a PM and I'm sure we can sort something out dude...
