FIAT BRAVO 500 Abarth brake discs and pads on a Bravo

Could anyone please tell me if the brake discs and pads from a 500 Abarth will fit a 2008 fiat bravo Tjet sport I can get a standard 500 Abarth set of discs and pads front and rear still brand new and would like to know if it will fit my bravo Wil the pads fit into my calipers Ive tried searching the net no no avail. My brakes are just about finished front and rear and I need to replace them ASAP.

You might look in the Stilo section for a recent thread on brakes . Might help you decide on your choice I got new discs from buypartsby but the carriage could be expensive to ROI. There is an old thread in bravo section re winding back the rear calipers to fit pads. Worth a good read.

Yes you do need a wind-back tool for winding back the rear calipers. They wind back clockwise on the right-hand side and anti-clockwise on the left. The fronts dont need any special tools from what I can tell but you will need to deal with brake pad wear sensors (on the left-hand front according to my workshop manual.). I havent actually worked on my front brakes so I have no personal experience. Mintex

FIAT PUNTO upgraded pads and discs any recommendations

as title suggest any recommendations for up graded discs and pads prefereablly not to expensive lol i dont mind paying extra thogh. my discs are warped soo need something figured maybe get some better ones.

Id guess then drilled pads etc will make very little difference you could convert your front callipers to take something like 1.8 bravo discs httpwww.fiatforum.comcinq-sei-te...-calipers.html He had problems as they werent 1.8 callipers iirc. or alternatively stick standard discs on and get better pads i got reddot pads and theyre great no brake fade however thats on a 2.0 bravo HGT with vented discs as standard.

If your drilled rotors are E approved they are VERY unlikey to fracture. As far as I have worked out of you have brake fade you need venting - and if you just need more stopping power you need softer pads. So get the vented calipers and pads from a 1.6 auto 1.8 or 1.9 (diesel) bravobravamarea and that should cure it. For even better brakes fit green stuff pads. The discs can be the cheapest ones you can find - they make little or no difference.

ok ths has turned out to be a more complicated answer then i expectyed lmao i was just expecting a get brand X there pads and discs are better anyway from what you saying to see a real difference its better to get bigger brake set up you suggest the bravo ones wich i believe are the same as the jtd punto as the discs and pads have same part numbers. soooo if i can get all i need from a srappy is jtd

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brake Problems - Bravo 1.9JTD

Hi there from Portugal My bravo 1.9JTD as some brake problems more rear brake power then front. These are the parts that I have changed - flexyhoses - front and rear - Master brake pump Is it possible that the vaccum pump (that helps in braking force - dont know the real name.. sorry) that is connected to the engine and sends air pressure is busted and so theres more pressure in back brakes. The handbrake

if you havent changed the pads (front) then what is the condition of the calipers and discs . calipers pads could be seized and bravos are approaching the stage where discs need to be replaced anyway. they are relatively cheap. If you have ABS (most JTD s should have) then there is no brake balance valve to worry about but if there is one examine it also. If you changed the shoes did you examine the

FIAT BRAVO Unusual Brake Pad Wear Pattern

About 6000 miles ago I changed all the brake pads on my Multijet 120 Active Sport and fitted EBC black pads. That turned out to be a big mistake - they squealed like a banshee at the front as they dont come with anti-squeal shims (which are riveted onto the original fit pads). After they sent me some stick-on anti-squeal shims the problem is much better but the brakes do sound as if the friction material

Although the solution sounds unbelievable you already know really but dont want to think about it. Its either a seized & partial seizure of one or both calipers (partial on one side only) or a problem with the pistons after the rewind issue last time. I call strip replace calipers & pads examine discs replace discs if beyond useful service state bleed & replace brake fluid.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brake discs.

Hello again alljust hit quite a serious problem in the hgt.Going down the motorway and the car just started vibrating very violently.When i eventually got it to a garage it seemed my drivers brake caliper was seized on.The disc was glowing red and it took some serious leverage to free it.Tried to get a caliper from my local motor factor only to be told its fiat only.Luckily the fiat garage done me

Got the new Caliper today still waiting on discs and pads.The only thing is the new caliper is a lovely new gold colour and the other is 6 year old black-gray one.So before discs and pads fitted was wondering what colour to paint the calipers.The car is ink black discs will be black and pads greenAny suggestions appreciated. On another note JayfishIm definitly interested in the chip if your still selling

FIAT BRAVO Brakes - to stop or not

I have a 2008 bravo 1.6 Multijet 5-door. Recently i changed the front brakes for original new replacements due to usual wear and a vibration under braking at high speeds 180 kph sort of speeds The new brakes have made no difference to the vibration in fact the brakes seem to sticking on a bit. Anyone any ideas

Vibration when braking can be caused by warped or unevenly worn discs wornsoft suspension mountings worn wheel bearings. When you say you replaced the brakes was this just the pads or discs as well discs should be checked for thickness variation and run-out (wobble). If these were replaced ensure their mounting faces were clean. Sticking brakes suggest that the calipers were not cleaned properly and

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo Brakes

Are the calipers interchangeable on all bravos across the range

On track Id say you need even less rear braking as late braking trowns the weight over the front and leads to a very annoying tendancy for the car to spin when the rears lock. I have just removed my DS3000 pads from the rear and replace with std road pads. I had coupe turbo calipers (16vt) ds3000 on tipo 16v brembo discs I would estimate this would fit the non 20v bravos and it was fantastic braking but disc warpage leads me to a AP Cp5100 4 pot set up.

FIAT BRAVA 182 New Brakes

Hi all Ive been wondering about replacing my brakes on my 1999T bravo HGT as they dont look in the best condition Braking isnt as smooth as Id like it both the discs & calipers look rusted to hell my question is do you think I need new calipers and what kind of price am I looking at to get all 4 calipers replaced I had the bravo RAC tested before purchase and they didnt say there were any problems

You need to check the thickness of the discs and how much the pads are worn. Rust on the surface of the calipers and parts of the discs is completely normal and will not affect brake performance. Rust on the brake surface on the discs is normal as well if the cars been standing a while andll dissapear as soon as you use them a bit. Replacing the calipers and discs will only last a short while until the new bits starts rusting as well

FIAT BRAVA 182 Solid discs to Vented discs

Hi guys My new bravo 16v has solid Front discs but my Marea 16v had vented is it possible just to do a straight swap the calipers look the same. Same thing with the rear the Marea has huge Drums at the rear and bravo has microscopic drums.

1.6 and bigger Weekend had vented disks at front (and 1.6 auto saloon manual shared same as bravobrava). bravo and brava have vented disks up from 1.8. Diameter for the disc is same but vented is 8mm thicker. If it fits inside the carrier and pads fit I see why not I just dont see a need for vented discs on a 1.2 unless you plan on upgrading the calipers. Front brakes for the 1.6 are same as on 1.2 The rear brakes dont need much on light and short bravo so I would not upset the balance.

Is it easy or indeed possible to change the front disks on a 1.6 Mk2 to vented 1.8 disks and if so what would I require to do it. Had a bit of a moment earlier when the brakes decided to fade Im assuming its just calipers and disks. Or is there anything else Thanks guys

you dont get as much engine braking on an auto so they need better brakes. if they use the same calipers as a 1.6 then you can use the auto discs and pads however at a scrapyard a complete front brake setup from a 1.8 bravo brava or marea will not cost much at all if you can find a set with decent discs that you can use it will work out a very cheap upgrade. i found my 1.6 suffered badly from brake

Hi folks My brakes are rubbish. Ive swapped the discs and pads over from a donor car because the brakes were quite new on that one and they worked really well.

Thanks for your help folks. Ffoxy - I checked the brakes as per your suggestion - the pedal depressed after ignition so I assume the power assitance is working okay.

I was also advised the pads could do with changing soon. The cars only done 3000 miles

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brakes

Hi all I am considering upgrading my brakes because i seem to cook them quite alot. I was wondering what is the best option 1. Coupe brakes - Not sure how much worked need thou 2. Grooved and drilled with pads 3. rear disc conversion - again not sure how much work any other info would be great

no point in rear discs they only do 10% or the braking. upgrade the pads and discs that makes a big difference to fade at high temperatures. if your brakes have solid discs then upgrade to the brakes with vented discs wont cost much at all getting calipers from a scrapyard.

FIAT MAREA 185 Drums to Calipers

How much is involved changing drums to calipers anyone done it

Ive done it on my JTD bravo. Dead easy to do. All you need is... 1. Rear discs 2. Spacer For Hub. (The old one wont sit the discs right take off doner car) 3. Disk Guard 4. Calliper Mounts and bolts. 5. Callipers 6. Handbrake cables (LR) from doner car or buy new. 7. brake pads 8. New Rear Section brake Lines The hubs can stay and so can the ABS sensors if you have ABS. Technically there is no gain in braking its more for looks and easier to maintain than drums.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brake conversions

Hi everybody its me again Does anyone have any idea of exactly how much i would need to change in order to swap my rear brake drums for discs would it just be the wheel assembly or would i need to replace the hubs and bearings as well and modify the suspension Regards Luis

Im on with building up a collection of parts ready to change Bunnys bravo from drum to disc. Esentially you will need calipers discs pads and possibly some hub components and the rear plate which holds the caliper.
