That's them as standard.. Where the caliper bolts go through on the old ones ,they don't on the new discs as they push the cAliper further Away from the bolt holes?
I just thought the hub carriers would of been the same size?
My only silver lining is that they sent me the wrong discs and the standard vented ones are a fraction smaller.

Cheers in advance

Well I'm at the point of throwing the towel in now..I've got the right pads..but it seems (unless I'm wrong) the disc is too big length wise..depth it fine.
The hub cArriers etc seem fine and would line up if the discs diameter was fractionally smaller..

Any ideas folks?

....Well ive set about fitting the parts ive got and stripped down my old parts..the disc fits well and if im right so do the carriers etc..

my issue is that the (vented) pads ive bought dont fit my calipers , ive been to halfords and bought the HBP406 pads..which again dont fit

unsure which ones i need..they just need a few more mm of clearance but whats annoying is the old ones that were in the vented calipers fit like a glove..
is it a case of taking these to halfords and looking for the same styled ones?
P.S. i work at halfords so thought easiest option unless theres some other companies like CES that would have a better knowledge/idea for me?

Thanks in advance as usual :)

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 :)

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 :/
