They look like standard fiesta calipers. You placed a standard size disc onto the old one?

Yep and it's tiny in comparison, when I put the smaller discs on the car and attached the caliper a to the hub, the pads were a few centimetres above the disc lol.

I ha e saw someone use fiat coupe discs on fiestas. But they had a seperate bracket an he had to space them out. Have you got standard pads in the carrier? They could be like focus pads or something? Im not too sure if they are bigger without having them in front of me?

I think you would be wise to put it back to stock - new stock discs/ pads will probably work better anyway than mismatched or knacked discs, however big they are

That's what I'm thinking my only option is but yeah it's standard fiesta pads, this is why I'm really confused

Its simple - a previous owner has "bodged" it - just so the discs fill the wheels (cosmetics - not for performance/ braking power)

I'm going to have to go round some local car mid places and see of any of them know what to do. Hope the car passes with these on as they're shot!
