16V Brakes on a Fox....Pictures

One of the problems with the FAQ on front brakes, is there is no pictures. You can describe something all you want, but pictures speak tons.

I had these parts laying around, so I thought I would put a little picture show together.

This first picture shows why you can't most VW carriers, except the Scirocco type carrier on a Fox strut. The spacing for the carrier holes are too far apart.  





Using a Fox strut and one 16v Jetta rotor I had laying around to do the mock up.



This picture shows a 16v Scirocco carrier mounted to the Fox strut with a Jetta 16V rotor.



The second picture is an end view of the same carrier and rotor.



The next pictures are with the Jetta 16v caliper bolted up to the Scirocco 16v carrier with a Jetta 16v rotor on a Fox strut.





You can tell this is a Jetta 16v caliper, because of the little hard brake line that loops around, before going to the brake line. This is the only difference between a Scirocco 16v caliper and Jetta 16v caliper. You can remove the hard brake line and just use the standard Fox brake line, if you use the Jetta 16v caliper.

Next 2 pictures show a Scirocco 16v caliper bolted up to a Fox strut with a Jetta 16v rotor.





The next 2 pictures show a Audi 4KQ front caliper bolted up to a Fox strut with a Jetta 16v rotor.





See any difference in these calipers and carriers. Nope all the same.
