    Need Brakes but what ones! (Golf MKIII 1.9D)

    Hi all as the description says, I need new calipers but I'm having some trouble trying to identify what ones i need. The only numbers i can get off the calipers are "40 DE" and "VW II" car is non ABS. I'll add a few pics of them and hopefully someone on here will be able to help out with a part number or link to whats needed.

    Front calipers then... They are ATE so called Mk2 calipers so you have 239x12 solid discs as the later version used 256x13 discs and TRW calipers... that’s just me being a nerd though... the calipers you need are 1H0615123 A or C left and 1H0615124 A or C right and these can be bought by Pagid from Euro Car parts very affordably.

    Thanks Crasher, I'll try email them to get some prices and availability at the moment they don't have them listed on the website

    Are there any other decent places to be ordering parts from as i suspect over time I'll be needing a lot of parts.

    long term plan is to change all shocks, springs, wishbones/ball joints, rear sub frame and maybe front. And that's not counting sorting the head lining and cleaning up the engine that may or may not get swapped out when the rest of the car is in good shape :P
