Help Front Brake Disc Size

I have a 156 1.6TS 2001, I have to replace the front discs and pads, what diameter should the front vented discs be? Having supply issues with EuroCar Parts in Belfast.

AFAIK The 1.6 has solid discs, that could be why ECP have a problem with supply.

1.6 changed to vented in 2001.

the vented disks are 284mm (from 03.2001), the non-vented ones 281mm (until 02.2001).

You can check the Bosch catalogue or the TRW catalogue
