Brake pads for late Type 3 and early Type 4

Post by Editor » 21st October 2004 - 12:12am

Stuart Sepple sent this condensed data:-

Here's a list of alternative front brake pads for the late Type 3, now VW
have discontinued manufacturing originals.

Front Pads from
ALFA ROMEO Giulieta 77-86
AUDI 100 Range 69-74
BEDFORD Chevanne Range 76-82
BMW 1500, 1502 Range 1975
VAUXHALL Cavalier Range 75-84

Also REAR pads for VOLVO 760 Range 78-87

Also on my car I used a Pattern part manufacturer MINTEX Pads
Part No MDR1002AF 90R-01021/322

These fitted and worked perfectly and were very inexpensive,
