Quick Question Regarding Mk4-5 Brakes

19 February 2013 - 01:14 PM

I'm just wondering if the mk5 brake calipers etc bolt straight on to the mk4 set-up?
I've got Mk4 vented discs and I'm looking at mk5 vented calipers/carriers?
Long story but the mk4 calipers bleed nipple snapped and can't be drilled/removed...

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 :)

Hi guys/ladies I've had the parts there for a while now but basically I'm wondering if I've got this right...

Just Saying Hello...

Well first of all I'm new to this whole forum stuff so no doubt I'll make some mistakes , I'm andy from wales ,I'm 25, I drive a mk4 ford fiesta 1.3i with 83,000 on it , 2nd engine (someone killed the previous one?) shell had about 60,000, no modifications due to pointlessness of it but she does have a panel k&n only due to getting it for 8 :)
Has a sub in the boot I'll admit but only for better sound..none of this hardcore German slightly tranced 2,000bpm at full wack.
That's kinda all I have to say (if this is right) and I hope to take advice and where possible apply any knowledge I have.
