    If they are definately different sizes and not just old and new versions of the same size (Vx did change their rear pads half way through the Vec's life, to stop them making clunking noises) then you need the 2686 - they're the ones designed to fit the 292mm rear disks, which is what you have (3.0V6 diesel, right?).

    Sorry mate the Mintex site keeps crashing for me. It might have something to do with solid or vented disc type, but then again I'm sure all V6's came with Vented?
