    Default new brake pads required!

    Hi,

    I need some new front brake pads for my 52 reg 3.2 Elite. I contacted my local motor factor who advised me that it could be one of two different types?

    I then contacted an eBay seller who was selling front pads for a Vectra, listing the 3.2 estate, but was told that they wont fit my hatch back.

    Do I need any special ones? I dont think my current ones have wear indicators on them as I never had a message on the MID telling me my pads were getting low.

    Thanks.

    The early 3.2's had 302mm fronts iirc. TBH take them off trace around a pad, or take a pic with sizes and take that to your local MF's. TBH most motor factors use registrations linked to VIN numbers then days.
