Another simple task that's proving to be more difficult than expected. In changing the front and rear pads on my 88 Jalpa I found that the spring clips were so badly corroded that they literally fell apart in my hands. However, I can't find any replacements - have tried several brake specialists that can't seem to match anything up - anyone else encountered this problem and if spo how did you solve it. I'd ideally like to get a new brake fixing kit that includes clips & pins.

Tremendously helpful as always Raymond!! The EBC part numbers above are what I've always seen cited for the Jalpa. Haven't heard any complaints. As an aside though, I did want to note for P250 owners that may also be reading this thread, that the 4104Rs did NOT fit my rear calipers. EBC lists them for a P300 as well.

I cannot find a reference for a 1979 - 1981 BMW 735 in EBC's website lookup function, however, if I search EBC sellers on the net, I find 4447Rs listed for the rear on some sites and 3104Cs which are redstuff pads that cross to the 4104Rs on other sites?

Not to hijack the thread (okay I am for a moment :)), but Raymond do you happen to know the proper yellowstuff pads for a P250?

Best regards,

Bryan

Brian, I found the BMW 735 will I was checking which BMW model uses the same front and rear pads since it's known that one BMW model of that time range must have been the donner because for the Jalpa and Countach original BMW ATE calipers front and rear were used.

Sorry can't help with the P250, but when you have the pads out you can compare them with the pads EBC is producing, they have drafts in their catalog of every pad with measures shown.

But honestly, the redstuff are good enough for the Urraco, I use greenstuff on my wife's Peugeot 307cc and the difference is already significant.

Great idea, hadn't thought of that!!

Oooh, but yellowstuff pads are needed for a Jalpa ... What are you trying to say about my car ... or my driving style ... ;)

Best regards,

Hi all,

Can I ask, does the model of BMW also match up the discs too?

Simon,
