    Question Where to get caliper carrier bolts?

    I'm planning to get back to replacing the brake discs and pads (thanks to those that replied to my previous post). I want to replace the carrier bolts, to be on a safer side, but also because heads on some of them are starting to round (I hope I'll be able to get them out - got a 1/2" breaker bar and proper torx sockets).

    However I can't find anywhere to buy these bolts. My local dealer doesn't stock them and autovax didn't even have them in the list of available parts. I need to get them for all 4 wheels.

    Many thanks!

    Vx do a slider kit for the calipers because they are known to stick which I got done but not sure if bolts included as garage supplied them from vx.

    They are available to order from your dealer

    As I stated, my local dealer didn't stock them. I'll try calling a couple other dealers within a reasonable distance - maybe they have them.

    Then ask them to order them - orders placed with Vauxhall HQ in the morning would arrive the next day.

    Dealers no longer hold vast amounts of spares and order them overnight from VX. Its a very poor dealer that did not give you the option of ordering the parts for next day delivery.

    I was chasing a part the other day and I called 5 local dealers, none of them had the part in stock but all of them offered to order it in for the following day

    Ok, spoke to another dealer nearby, who ordered the bolts for me, although it will take 3 days (why?) for them to arrive.

    My local dealership advised the slider kit was not available on the 292mm rear caliper, complete assembly only
    Could somone advise as to the part numbers for both (nearside and offside) and the bolts to go with this as well

    I have a similar issue with 314mm discs and pads for my car, the dealership I use just doesn't stock them
    They have to order them from their other branch (20 miles away) and if they have run out then sadly it is 5 days waiting (which has occured once)
