3.0l V6, Black diamond discs and pads...wont fit!
I ordered the appropriate Black diamond grooved front brake discs (KBD916G) and Black diamond predator pads (PP149) for my car, a 2000, phase2 GTV V6. The place where I had them ordered is R-Tec in Herts. I do know the place as I live near them and order quite a few things through them.
Had them scheduled to be fit today, instead of the standard 1 hour fitting time it should have taken the technician came out to say after 90 minutes that there seemed to be a problem tey just cant seem to get them to fit! I was huh? what do you mean. Well apparently, both the discs and pads were the right ones for my car, but when it came to putting them on together, they wouldnt go! they say that the pads coming up as too thick, that they wont go on together, that if they did put them on it would prevent the wheels from a full lock turn or something. and they werent even talking about 0.5-1mm, they were talking 3-4mm.!
I couldnt understand how this was. He said he was going to go down to another auto place down the road and check the thickness of the GTV V6 pad. He double checked all the specs and everything seemed in order, but they just will not go on together...
He suggested he put on the old discs and pads and leave the problem with them (He offered to refund me with everything), and he will contact Alfa and also Black diamond if necessary to find out if there is a specific fitment issue involved.
I was wondering if anyone else had a problem putting on Black diamond discs and pads or a problem of this type?
