Confused . . . Rear discs on GT
Helped my brother this weekend to change all discs/pads on his 2005 GT 1.9 JTD.
Bought all Bosch parts from ebay. Cost around £150 for the lot.
Fronts were a doddle but the rear discs turned out to be TOO BIG! We assumed the wrong discs had been sent and just put the old one back on.
New discs are 276mm in diameter and listed as all GTs from 2004 onwards. This seems correct as after lots of googling it seems there is only one size of rear disc for the GT and that is 276mm. But they are too big for my brothers car!
Unfortunately, I didn't measure the old disc before putting it back on, but it was smaller by about 20mm IIRC.
The new pads are exactly the same as the old pads - newer type with NO spring on them.
When I got home I had a quick look at my own rear discs (GT 1.9JTD 2007) and did a quick approx measure. They appear to be 276mm and with the same pads.
Question is: What have we done wrong or IS there 2 different size rear discs for the GT?
