Hi there, Basically I'm wondering if anyone could advise me..I'm wondering what's needed to change the solid discs to vented ones.
So far I've got new vented discs,pads and the calipers/carriers... Is there anything else I need? Cheers in advance :)

Im afraid that's an unknown lol unless anyone else knows that on here? I'd strongly assume they would be?
I had doubts I'd need something to do with hubs?
Also will they fit on standard steel rims?
Sorry for the 20 questions...

Im not entirely sure on that but i would have thought that the steering knuckle and hub would be the same across all models

what is the difference in size of the discs?

Sadly I have no idea on either.... But that was my thoughts of it all being similar across the range due to production costs etc...the fiesta I cut them off looked the same set up as mine (hub wise etc) they've had an advisery so was keen to fit them soon :/

ok so after a quick check, they are both 240mm diameter but the solid are 10mm thick where as the vented are 20mm

so i would think its safe to say they use the same knuckle/hub setup and the calipers and carriers you have got are enough.

Yeah that's the school boy error I found as I went to fit the vented on solids lol
I'm just one for wanting it all present then do the task..
Well seems do able then? Not a boy racer mod by the way was only a couple pound extra so thought no harm lol
Shall attempt it on my next day off :)
