Hi All With the lockdown I'm fortunate to have saved a little spare cash, so I'm getting a few bits in now for jobs over next winter. I'm looking at getting some MIntex 1144 pads for front and rear, with some new discs too. For most cars its easy buying parts, put your registration in and it tells you what to buy.... But that's a little different with my Westie and I'd be grateful if someone could either post a link to the pads and discs I need or let me know the part numbers?? I have non-vented front discs with, I think, M16 front calipers, and the golf mk4 calipers
Since replacing the brake pads and fluid both rear discs are shiny on the outside but the insides are rusty. I used a proper tool to rewind the pistons. The pads are free and the calipers slide ok, the pedal is very good and the car stops well. Backed off the handbrake in case it was stopping the auto adjust mechanism but no improvement. The rears are working as I can stall the engine when it's on the stands. I've covered about 1,000 miles since replacing the pads. John.
Hi, New to the forum so forgive me if I've posted in wrong section. I have an Aerorace car that has Westfield branded four pot callipers on the front. The rears take the same pads. I've had some new pads on order for weeks, they've had my money and still can't give me a delivery date, or a supplier part number so I can source my own. The pads measure 76.7 across and 61.5 deep. I will try and attach a photo - can anyone identify them. I've been in touch with a couple of brake specialists but I'm hitting a brick wall. I have a track day next week and they're knackered so I'm desp
Morning all, I'm new to the forum & looking compete in the speed series this year. My car is a Duratec powered Westfield (app 240 bhp @ flywheel). Type 9 gearbox, with AP 4 pot & solid disc at the front with DS2500 pads & golf calipers on the rear with Hawk Blue 9012 pads. Completed a few track days last year & brakes were fine, but with the much shorter distances & cooler brakes on the sprits/hillclimbs I'm concerned that they will not be as good - so what is the best combination of front/rear pads for this application. Thanks for your help & see you at Croft w
