    Default Got a quick question...

    302mm GSI / 2.0T brakes would work fine on any Vectra C right??

    I sold my old 302's on eBay a few months a go and the guys just got round to fitting them, but says the garage fitting them can't get them to work.

    They're saying something like there's not enough "boost pressure"?

    Now I know they worked when I sold them as I obviously had them on my car before upgrading.

    The cars a pre-face diesel, that's pretty much all I know, but why wouldthey suddenly no longer work??

    Any ideas?

    Maybe they've fitted them upside down,that could be the reason.....

    Problem is I obviously can't have a look my self unless I drive all the way to London... But surely, any garage should know what to do?

    I have read about guys on here and elsewhere that have upgraded to 302mm and had no problems.... if it were an issue then you would have had problems going up to a bigger size on your car..

    Do you think that as he has had them for sometime they may have seized up a little and just need working out.. maybe there is a vacuum leak, i have only heard of a car requiring extra boost pressure in the braking on the hot rod circuits..

    Not sure about his garage though... as you say, they should know what to do..

    Probably upside down as already said. It makes it very difficult to bleed them fully as the nipple isn't in the correct place leaving air trapped.

    But yes they will work on any veccy.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
