    Default Pug 205 front brakes

    I am wanting to purchase some braded brake lines for my 205 1.9 gti
    but am unsure on what brake calipers I have (girling or Bendex)
    and if it makes any difference to my order? ie brake hose fittings different
    I have a haynes manual and it sheds no light on this.
    Any help would be much appreciated. thanks

    G'Day,

    Bendix vs Girling

    Others may be able to confirm or debunk this but my understanding is:

    Bendix:
    The inside and outside pads are opposite of each other (not off set)

    Girling:
    The inside pad is offset (slightly lower / higher) when compared to the outside pad.

    The Haynes manual identifies this clearly in section 7 from memory (or is that gearbox and 9 is the braking section)?

    Regards

    Thanks for that.
    I checked out my haynes manual and all I could determine is that it seems
    that all 1.9s have Bendex rear cailper Girling front and it is smaller engined
    models (xs & xr) that have Bendex front calipers.
    Does this sound ride?

    Hi,

    I currently have a set on trademe for sale. They both take the same brake lines so you don't have to worry which caliper you have. I'll deliver even if you live around auckland.
