For Sale Mk4 golf rear brake calipers and caliper carriers. These are a popular upgrade from Corrado, Mk2 and early Mk3 golf items as the handbrake mechanism is better and doesn't tend to seize like the older design. Banjo bolts included and I also have a set of good secondhand pads if needed.

Price: €100

PM or phone/text 086 8548629

I have heard they make a big difference alright. Some time I'll get around to putting a set on my car


Is it just the handbrake that is better or the pedal as well Oisin? My brakes are very good but the handbrake could be better.

well, i can definitely say the pedal is better,
but my hand brake cables(new) are still in the boot, for the last 2 weeks!
one of the old ones was seized, only €40 for both in agri auto(motor factors)

PMSL, not quite Ronan


Oisin where is that 'how to' guide? Stick it up in the technical forum there I'm sure a lot of people would be interested

Don't have any at the moment. I exhausted the supply of the local scrapyard.

I'll call in to him this evening and see if he has any more


I need a set for my own car in any case.

Just to let you know, i threw in another bit on changing handbrake cables with the new calipers to that How To thread, so it might be worth a read, the new handbrake cables are a lil different to the old originals. And shorter!

to bleed them properly take the calliper off its mounting bracket as the bleeder is not the highest point when fitted to the mk2
