Hi guys and gals,

I removed both front calipers/carriers and hung them out of the way whilst I was doing the upper and lower ball joints.
Problem is when I gunned off the 21mm carrier bolts one of them pulled the thread clean out.
Looks too far gone to helicoil and am not up for that kind of fix on a brake componant.

So I need to get my hands on a N/S/F caliper carrier as soon as physically possible!

From what I understand these carriers are different to the 2.4`s and the 2.5`s.

I`m in the Chichester area and will travel to collect if someone has one (within reason)

Any help is much obliged.

T:

Maybe Bridges at Pease Pottage near Crawley or Hove Car Spares tho you've prob tried both of them already

Surely there's other VAG group variety that use this carrier

What one are you after the 2.4 or 2.5

Haven`t tried them so i`ll give them a call. Thanks T:

Yeah 1.9 td - seems strange why vw fitted different calipers to the 3 engine sizes. Maybe the 1.9 non turbo is the same??:*

Thanks again.
