    confused Calliper Casing/Carrier/Housing ????

    I have an 2003 1800 petrol vectra c (who would of thought) and today whilst changing the pads and adjusting the callipers i have stripped the thread on the (what i think is called) the calliper carrier or housing. I have been advised not to use a helicoil due to the pressure thats applied during braking so i need a new one. From dealer its £81 + VAT which i cant really afford and i have tried to locate one from a local scrapyard which has come to no avail as all scrappers with 03 vectra's in have had them removed already, however i have been informed that the callipers are the same on the Zafira is this correct or does anyone know if there is any other model that i could look at trying to get one off?

    Many thanks once more for your help,

    Zaffy uses Astra running gear and floor pan mate not vec. Saab's use the same as the vec in some cases. All vecs except V6's and 2.0T use the same brakes as you mate, so there should be plenty of choice out there for you mate.

    managed to find one off a Saab as mentioned thankyou, however my next question is how easy is it to remove the calliper and exchange for a new/replacment part as my offside calliper is starting to seize, i have removed it from the carrier and free it up but it needs changing really.

    i understand that the brake line needs clamping and removing but i cant see how the handbrake cable is removed from the housing is it a simple case of just pulling it through with pliers or am i missiing something?

    Thanks again for all your help

    A happy with vectras (lovely cars) unhappy with my Friday afternoon vectra, damn im having so many problems with it.
