I've just ordered up a rear brake caliper for my R reg Gti-6, and they've sent me down two saying that there are two for my year and to send 1 back, however looking at them I can't see any difference between the two apart from the part numbers and different coloured handbrake cable holders . Is there actually any difference between the years?

Cheers

maybe something to do with the piston sizes Hmm

gti6 rear calipers are 32mm, most of the others are 30mm.

edit: beaten to it by a matter of seconds LOL

Bosch ones on the Renaults etc have a tubular arm wheres the Bendix bradned ones have a flatter arm.

    that's the only difference I've seen in them, they are otherwise identical when I've had them in bits.

    Thanks chaps, ended up being what was suggested. Phoned up the manufacturer and they said one part number was 32mm piston and the other 30mm.
