    Default calipers vs. discs

    Hi,
    I have V6 3.2 Vectra C and I want to upgrade my 302mm brakes to 314mm. Questions are:

    this is caliper for 302mm disc?


    this is caliper for 314mm disc? (I already saw this caliper on 302mm disc )


    So I just want to know if I can use this caliper with 314mm for sure?
    Or this same looking big calipers was made for 302, 314 and also for 345mm disc and they are different (but same looking)?

    ps: sorry for my english

    The yellow ones looks like the calipers you would want for the 314 conversion. If you wanted to change to 314 you will need new calipers and mounting bracket and disk

    So when I will buy calipers which look like the yellow one, I have 100% sure that they can be used with 314mm discs? This is what I need to know for sure before buying them.

    caliper for 314 and 345mm disc looks almost same. So what about yellow caliper (on picture above) on 302mm disc? I already saw that caliper on 302mm disc, but I don't know if that caliper also can handle 302 and 314mm disc or if that caliper is different as 314 caliper, but same looking..

    the correct calipers for 302 discs do NOT look like yellow ones, only the 314 and 345 calipers have that particular spring clip

    ok, so caliper which looks like the yellow one above is 10000% for 314 (eventually for 345), not for 302mm?

    yes but to fit the 314mm caliper on the 345mm you need to file them up a few mm a bit
