Fitting 306 Brakes!!!

Discussion in 'Peugeot 306' started by The Question Asker, Nov 26, 2003.

  1. Hi,
    I'm just asking if anyone has any guides to fitting brakes on a Pug 306
    1.9TD, I wanna replace the discs and pads on the front wheels. I have done
    this on a Citroen ZX using a haynes guide but don't have one for a Pug,
    Cheers for any help

    undo 2 x 17mm bolts at the back of the caliper, lift clear.

    You going to have to look on your caliper. The make should be engraved
    on it. The other make, I think, is Teves, which is the usual one.

    Teves is stamped Ate on the caliper.

    all the 306 D'turbos are Ate front calipers (according to dealer). It's
    stamped on top of caliper and you'll see it without removing the wheel

    Err, no. It can have a totally different master cylinder to whatever
    it has on the pads. The shoes can be different too. You could have all
    three makes fitted to your car!! The only way of telling is by
    looking.

    The only way to be sure is buy both and ask for a refund one you take
    thewrong ones back or take the pads of first.oops and get someone to take
    you.
