    Default Have I got the right rear pads?

    Hi chaps,

    I'm going to replace the rear pads on my Edition 100 at the weekend. I've got the pads but they're different to those shown in the How2. (I haven't had mine apart yet to make sure I have the right pads).

    Basically, I gave the parts shop all the details (2003 2.0Turbo etc etc) and the box they're in says they're rear pads for a Signum and Vectra C's from 1.8 - 2.2DTi.

    My issue is tho that although the pads look the same shape as those in the how2, they don't have the clip on the rear of the pads that stays flush to the metal but have a big like mushroomy clip that stands pround of the rear (bought 20mm high and 20mm diameter) - hard to describe without photos and I'm at work! Its only on two pads so one each side. The other pad has little locating studs on it by looks of it. Have I got the right thing? Lad in parts shop assured me they were but having looked at the how2 I'm not convinced. Don't wanna get me car apart on Sat and find its wrong!

    Help much appreciated! Cheers!

    Sounds like they've given you a set of front pads!! The rears look like this.....



    ..actually, thinking about it, they've changed slightly since then. The ant-rattle spring bit is no longer on the back of one pad, it sticks out at the bottom - just in case you wonder if they've given you the wrong ones again when you change them!! The mushroom bit you refer to is what's on front pads.

    And given that you've said that the box says 1.8-2.2DTi I don't think they've even given you the right front pads either as the 2.0T has 302mm fronts so has different front pads to those engines which have 285mm discs.

    What part number is on the box - out of curiosity?

    I think you need to take them back and lob them back at the parts guy that gave you them.

    The parts you want are either of the following......

    93176116 - these are what's called aftermarket - they are the ones supplied in the disc/pad kit and are okay(ish).
    93183140- these are the OEM pads and are the best ones to get IMO. They cost a bit more than the aftermarket ones but have much better performance.

    Those parts BTW are the rear pads for all Vectras and Signums. Even though some models, like the 2.0T and the 3.3 etc have larger rear discs, they still use the same size pads (unlike on the fronts).

    HTH

    No probs.

    You got the part number on the box just so I can confirm what you've been given?
