    Apparently 305s and 405s if yours is not ventilated (gti).

    My TRi had non vented front discs. The only FWD Peugeot I can think of without ventilated discs is the 205 Si.

    Front pads are hen's teeth.The tyrannies of time and distance were overcome allowing me to call upon EAI - no stock.
    But, did suggest that Peugeot 205 rear pads are the same shape though thinner. I took them.
    So for those who are stuck in the future - get hold of P205 rears as (temporary) replacement.
    Cheers and thanks to all who replied.

    Corerction: P206 or P306 rears (as stated on the box)are suitable replacement for "temporary" purposes.
    Now, have had a go but came up against 5headed bolts holding the caliper. And the piston does not retract- is there a trick? Should the engine be turning over?
    Tks

    Heard yesterday about these 5 headed bolts on a 205! Tool shop should have a socket for these?

    If it were my vehicle odd ball fasteners would be a guaranteed deletion.

    And be replaced with a suitable hex head bolt or an unbrako hex socket bolt.

    Would 405 brakes fit?
