with yours been a 147 i'd think its most likely 276mm.

look at the calipers, are they ribbed or smooth?
Oh dear.....
All normal 147 have the 251mm rear disc. Only the 147GTA had the 276mm rear.
Fronts will be 284mm Vented (only the early 105bhp 1.6 147 had solid fronts).

did you find out which caliper you have, if not just take a photo & post it up here.

Rear pads will be the later type "2", which you say are for 276mm discs, but are actually just the later type. ALL 147 have that rear pad.

So to sum up.
He has:
284mm vented fronts
251mm solid rears
Type 2 rear pads

Checkout for good prices.
