  1. Morning all, Does anyone know if the brake pipe union bolts are all the same size/type on the standard 1.6 piping with Bendix up front and Girling at the rear please? I reckon I need a load of these https://www.autodoc.co.uk/ate/193196 but just wanted to check here, just in case there's one or two outliers that I've missed. Cheers Ian.
  2. Hi, I have just had new rear shoes and pads and also new cylinders and brake cables fitted to my gti which is all standard. One of the brakes though is locking and getting hot but the other is fine. Even with the offending shoe completely slackened off it is locking slightly. They are the Girling type brakes, could this be a master cylinder problem or is this possibly something else?
  3. I need to replace one of the drums on my GTI. The 1.6 GTI used Girling brakes for the drums. As I understand, there were different size drums across the 205 range. How many different variations are there, and what size do I need for the GTI? In Australia we had 2 models that used drums on the rear - base model 205 Si and early model 205 GTI. Please provide more info! Thanks
  4. Hey all, Can anyone clarify for me which type of brakes will be on my standard 1989 G plate 1.6 please? As I'm aware they could be Bendix or Girling but I don't know which - is there a definitive guide or is it a case of just having a look? If the latter - how do I tell which are which please? I'll be looking to do the front discs and pads and the rear shoes at some point in the future so would be handy to know. Cheers Ian.
