Hello everyone!
I have problems with the rear right side caliper. It needs to be changed. Problem is, the original part cost a fortune here in Norway and is pretty damn expensive elsewhere too. So I thought I'll buy a "pirate" part. But which one? There seems to be 2 different types around:

- Bosch
- TRW

I have Bosch installed on the car.
Disk size is 260 mm, 10 mm thick.
C-C distance on "gliding bolts/sliders" are 120 mm.

Is the two types interchangeable? Can I mount a TRW caliper and it will fit?

I will go for the Bosch. If you have Bosch installed already it would be ok to go for the same.

Will do the same on my Mito car next week, I will change all brake pads with Bosch.

brakes-international might be able to supply something to match but cheaper https://www.brakesint.co.uk/

And no, the two types are NOT interchangable.

The calliper can be repaired for at least twice cheaper. Or buy a second hand one and take it for refurbishing.
But that depends where you are .. in UK, dead easy ... but the OP is in Norway! I bet Alfa's are fairly rare there ..
