Hi guys, just had the GTV MOTd and it has failed on a couple of things
If you have a look at the MOT history of my car, you should be able to see it... Regi is V229FSX and V5C is 30388463456
I normally take my car to CM garage but it is bit far away and feeling lazy after being back from my holiday my car is with my local MOT tyre garage. He basically said that the rear callipers is stuck and seized - I think I had this problem before and if I remember correctly, one of the rear callipers was actually replaced last year during a service. I think it is probably out of warranty now so I am just going to buy one online, get it replaced then drive the car to get it serviced probably late next month when I have the time.
Its a 3.0L GTV (not sure if the rear callipers are specific to a 3.0l only or if they are shared with the 2.0l as well) so I am looking at this:
Should I buy a sourced 'working one' or just get a new working one ?
I want to buy this nice shiny red one but it is so expensive
Also, any ideas where I can get them ball joints things? And the brake hose is leaking and needs to be repaired? How much is a new brake hose?
He said the front brakes are fine and just needs cleaned so no problems there. And if failed on emissions last year but no problem this year so its all good... I always thought there was something wrong with the brakes... It rolled down a parking spot the other day... so hopefully this is going to fix it once and for all!
Also, do u guys know where I can get my callipers rebuilt and powdercoated in glasgow? I have 2 front brembos and a rebuild kit. Just want to get it back to its former glory with some brembo stickers
