    Default 206 GTi rear pads

    Hi All,

    I've recently done the front pads and rotors on my Pug (easy job, what's with people saying French cars are hard to work on?? lol) and am now up to the rear pad change. The calipers look nothing like I've come across before (was a Ford driver, learnt my lesson). Is it an easy enough job for someone fairly handy with a spanner or am I going to find I need a special tool to get it done? Tried a search, both here and on google, but drew a blank.

    Also would there be any advantage in bolting up a 180 exhaust (full system) to my 138? I need to replace the cat anyway (rattly and the occasional error code) and I can get my hands on a complete system for a fair price.

    Cheers in advance.

    Rear caliper - you need a windback tool to get the pistons back. It's unique(ish, I'm not sure what other models it works for). Unless you have one, better to let a specialist do it.

    As for exhaust, I doubt the 180 version will work, it goes where your current spare wheel is. Better to get a custom exhaust designed for your model, or one from Remus etc.

    No tool needed to wind in pistons - they have a deep slot you just use a screwdriver on. Easy peasy.

    I stand corrected. I had read there was a windback tool.

    I reckon I'm right about the exhaust though, at least the back box, and tips etc.

    There are any number of windback tools that can do the job.

    A screwdriver will suffice, but it's much easier with a "proper" tool.

    Don't know how effective the 180 exhaust would be if it's not coming off a 180 manifold, but real estate under the back end is the (much!) bigger problem.

    I was quoted $2800 for a full-length Pug OE exhaust when my rear muffler rotted out -- the only size they stocked, I was told -- and $1100 for a (cat-back) Devil kit suddenly looked like a very "fair price" ...

    It would be coming off the 180 manifold, would just the manifold be worth it along with a custom made system (I have a good exhaust bloke).

    As the heavily redesigned head on the 180 probably has different port shapes (I'm guessing, but Mecachrome spent considerable time on it), I wouldn't be so sure the exhaust header bolts straight on.

    It's certainly a much more impressive-looking header than the 138 version though

    There is also considerable speculation about how "effective" the enormous rear box is on the 180, compared with a more noisy flow through design. It's certainly quiet, but perhaps would produce more power (and more noise) with a modified rear section.

    If you know a good exhaust guy, it would probably be cheaper and easier to just fit a custom exhaust.
    Regards,

    Simon

    I'm inclined to agree with Simon. My recollection is that it was the head work (and re-work) that delayed the 180's delivery.
