  1. MGF and MGTF
    I helped a chum change the front pads and discs (albeit slightly used ones)on my 04tf as I have no clue. And ever since I've got this knocking that started in the R/HS, seems to have moved to L/HS across the front of the car now. It's speed related but but after my lock related. Its not uniform...

    The performance of the brakes in my Rover 25 were noticeably poor, so I decided to check them. Firstly, I stripped, cleaned and inspected the pads on the front and shoes on the rear. All were well within specified thickness and didn't bind. I decided to renew the old brake fluid, but on...

  4. MG 6
    Does anyone know of any handbrake cables that may fit the mg6 gt as I have been equated over £600 pound for it off mg as you have to actually purchase the handbrake as well as the cables It's a 61 plate if that helps

    A reliable year for the ZS - so nothing to post on here for a while about it. But time for a service and the dreaded MOT. as well as the normal service, the brake discs were in a poor state, and attracted an advisory on last year's MOT so I decided to change them all, and change the pads and...

    Just got an MG ZS 180 and looking for a rear off side caliper in good condition as the current one has a seized cam which is causing the handbrake to stick. Need to get it through the MOT soon so rather than stripping it down I thought I'd check and see if anyone has a spare.

    1x set of Delphi Brake Shoes for rear Drums Bought these on Saturday, thinking my shoes needed replacing, but found out it was just the adjuster cable. My friend did try and fit one side, but took so long doing it, it got dark and I just said put the originals back on. So one pair has slight...

    As its dry today and the weekend looks to be wet Ive awarded myself a saturday on thursday. Main job of the day was swapping my brake hoses for nice shiny new stainless ones. Ive been pushing plusgas into the joints for a couple of days in prep, but came to undo them and even with a pipe...

    When braking lightly to a stop there is this annoying quite loud creaking sound as the front driverside wheel as it slowly rotates to a stop. With the wheel slowing rotating before the stop its, creak, creak, creak getting slower as the car comes to a stop. I had a guy look underneath with...

    I have a rover 25 facelift, and like all the solid setups, the front brakes are rather susceptible to heat fade, and are generally about as useful as a kick in the teeth. As far as I can make out from on here, 282mm discs won't fit under 15" rims, so I'm guessing my best choice would be the 262...

    I'm looking for a vented brake setup to upgrade the crappy solid brakes on my 214. I'm interested in any of the vented setups, especially the 282mm ones if anyone has a set lying around. I'd be wanting the discs, calipers and carriers. Pads would be a bonus, but not essential as I would be...
