    Hi,

    except for some US export-version (R1316) all other models (R1312, R1313, R1317 and R1318) have 54mm pistons. The same brake was used in Fiat Ritmo Abarth.
    The repair-kit can also be taken from Renault R20TL.
    Here is a link showing different references:

    Cheers

    Update

    Simon,

    The chap at Renault (City Auto) said that cars that old don't come up on the computer any more and it did not recognise any of the numbers, including many of the oval plates. It appears that Brendon no longer works there.

    Ray,

    PBR seem to have vanished into the ether. The part number you gave is not recognised by Repco and the Bursons system listed it NLA. He suggested I call ABS.

    ABS recognised the number you gave me (K746S) and were able to match it to a kit that was NLA. However there were more than 400 seals avaliable on the east coast but no dust boots.

    As an afterthought I asked what they had for an R20TL. Kits were avalible to suit a 54mm piston. I ordered 4 at $25 each. The risky part is that I haven't pulled the calipers down yet.

    I will post part numbers when I get the sets.

    Thanks again,

    Peter

    I've just ordered a set of seals and pistons from mecaparts.com
    Not that cheap, about $80-100 landed, but easy to get.
