    I am upgrading my vectra c 2006 sri 1.9 cdti brakes, to 314mm brakes, I am just trying to get every thing sorted, I have the calipers, disks and pads, but want to upgarde me brake lines, I have found a set of hel lines on ebay, how ever I have heard that the banjo clips are different sizes? can any one clear this up for me?

    these are the lines i've seen

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2308715986...620%26_rdc%3D1

    you will need the ones for the 2.8 spec vectra,s , 12mm banjo front and back ,

    pm paulhb as he just bought a set to have fitted and even after e mailing them to tell them that he needed the size above they still sent the wrong ones out .

    Check sizes directly on the HEL website or give them a ring to check Specs and pricess

    The Hel database is not fault free mine were sent as 10mm fronts because the Opel Vectra database was used as said call Dave he has the right fitting and next day delivery. Mine were £69 same as Hels price.

    Get in touch with HEL and speak to Ben, he's the owner, I had the first ever set made for a Vectra C from HEL when I did my brakes, he said if I sent him all the hoses for him to develop a kit he would do a set for me for nothing, which he did, can understand where this banjo size issue has arisen from as mine went straight on with no issues...

    Banjo size issue was originally from a goodridge set ordered via LMF, and that was affecting the rears not the fronts.

They was 10 mm again in the end they sent me another set 12 mm all round so I got a set in my shed 10mm front 12 rear never been used. It took two week to and loads of emails to sort, they just couldn't get the head round it lol

    That's why I suggested calling Dave at Daghosesupplies these issues have been resolved with his company after the Hel database got it wrong for me, top guy will sort it for you.
