Just completed by caliper rebuild and bought new Brembo pads and Pagid brake hoses from Euro Carparts.. trouble is the rear hoses are way too short to connect to the caliper. Its a 2001 3.0 v6.. I can obviously take them back which is a pain but where should I go to get the correct length hoses...
I have a set of 330mm Pagid Discs and pads to suit a 159 or Brera that I bought by mistake (I have 305mm Brembo's!)
Discs - Pagid 55209 (330 x 28mm)
Pads - Pagid T5113
They owe me £115 so looking for something like £90 to cut my losses and cover the price of the 305mm ones.
Fellow Alfa drivers,
In the quest to keep her in top shape - parts are often required.
This month it was a brake refresh and I checked all the usual suspects:
Western Saab and alfa
Is anyone using the Pagid discs and pads from ECP? I need to replace mine and these seem to be a cheaper alternative to genuine ones..
If so, are these the ones I would need:
Brake Discs | Brake Discs and Brake Parts for any car
Front disc: 330mm diameter
Front pads: for Brembo disc system...
Quick question to see if anyone has any recommendations.
Going to have a go at lubing up the clutch release shaft on my GT V6 this weekend as per the great advice from blacksheep on this forum.
While I'm in there I thought I may as well replace the slave cylinder.
Local motor factors have a...
Need some new pads, and came across these Pagid's for £35 for the whole front axle. Seems to good to be true, considering Pagid are fairly well regarded. I guess they are very basic Pagids?
Has anyone used them? Can't find any statistics on them.. regarding heat... stopping power etc. Need them...
Got new Pagid Blue pads on my 147 GTA, can't find any instructions on how to properly bed them in. Have driven them more than 3k km, took very good care of them the first 1k. However they still squeal like mad under light braking. So, anybody know how to properly bed them in?
Following on from discussion about this a while back, I thought I'd post the results of some searching. If you've got a GTA with the later 330mm brakes, then hardly any sites list your car. From seeing that the Ferodo DS2500 part numbers for the GTA 330mm and the Evo 8 are the same, I found the...
With the Doni trackday less than two months away I need to get some new front pads for the GTA (330mm brakes). I've never liked the feel of the standard pads - they can fade, and they can give a weird poor response from cold sometimes which feels like fade. I've always loved the feel of Pagids...
My brake system is going for a mayor upgrade in the coming weeks.
New Tarox front discs (P0WERALFA) and grooved and drilled discs for the rear are on their way. Braided hoses have been ordered. DOT 5.1 fluid will be used.
I'm thinking of going for Pagid Blue RS4-2 pads.
