    Default 314mm Caliper Details, Numbers or Distinctive Marks?

    Hi,

    This thread would have been perfect but the answer was never posted! I need all VX part numbers:

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...caliper+number

    But the reason for asking is I've got some 314mm calipers with everything including the hub assembly! But I need to know they're actually 314mm not 302mm as they were from a breaking V6 on ebay.

    Cheers!

    Nick

    They are very distinctive with how they look, and the pad retaining clip etc.

    Also, if the picture on this page of the 302's to the 314's is right then mine look to definitely be the 314's!

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...alipers&page=2

    Why do they look so much bigger if there's only meant to be 1.2cm difference?

    Or am I thinking of it wrong? Like when you measure a TV diagonal instead of horizontal etc.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    Nope, it's simply the disc diameter mate. The reason there's so much difference? God knows...
