Brake Discs Identification

Recommended Posts

hi all, could anyone tell me what vehicle my front discs might be off, in the process of changing my discs and calipers, thought that they were all sierra parts, how wrong was I, calipers are from a mk 6 escort, discs I don't know, the ones I've tried are not deep enough so don't fit on the hub correctly, see pics, I'm wanting to put vented discs on, got solids at the moment, can anyone help!!!!!!

Hi Ivan,


Most calipers won't have enough clearance to change from solid discs to vented discs as the vented discs are wider. I would check how much clearance you have between the

disc and caliper before buying vented discs. HTH Gary

You should be happy to stay with solids. Add in some performance pads, mintex m1144 if they do them, and your brakes will get up to temp and stay there well. Most vented discs are overkill for such a light car as yours and run too cold except on a hard track day.
