Hi all its been a long time waiting

Unfortunately the way it was the camera was no use, so i have no pictures but im hoping the guide can still be useful if u want a cheap brake upgrade and have a whole mondeo to do a whole upgrade

What you need:

Ratchet and sockets for 10,12 and 15mm

Angle grinding and grinding plate

Drill and 12mm drill piece

Brake Fluid




The First thing u had to do is take the front wheels off the car and so have the car on axle stands

Undo the caliper bolts 12mm (4) on the 2 front calipers

Remove the calipers and discs

Drill the caliper bolt holes with the 12mm drill piece

Using the grinder take about 3-4mm off the face of the hub at the caliper bolt holes

The caliper bolts will need trimming to fit and this can var between some brakes to make them perfect, but it is usually between 5-12mm mine had about 10mm taken off of them to give you a guide

After all of this fits together you can disconnect the brake hoses and attach them to the mondeo calipers

You will then need to bleed your brakes as normal

I hope that is of some use, sorry there were no pictures but thats how we did the brake conversion

Hope it helps :)

Ade

pah nothing to it! :P it was grinding not slicing off ;)

But it al works jolly well and moe theyre the same size as cosworth brakes, 280mm front vented :)

They work fantastic nearly put me through the windscreen and no skidding, definately much better than the old 240mm si discs :)

Ta, having them machined would of been a better option true.

However id prefer a mechanic, a good eyesight and some measuring tools to keep it straight than machining them as its meant to be a cheaper way to fit not expensive ;)

hey ho

oh yeah i agree with you totaly DIY is alwas the cheaper option :)

not criticising dude.. just think there would have been a better way around it.. as it only costs like £25 to have a head skimmed

wouldent imagain it would be much for another flat face job 8-)

Me and my mates have done this to 3 Fiestas now, including mine.

Although all we did was drill them holes out to 12mm, and space the disk out 3mm, either cut the bolts down to stop them catching, or use a washer to space them out a little.

Job done, cost me £20 for better brakes. 8-)

Just done this but forgot the - spacing the disc out thing - and have begun machining the calipers back by the discs themselves!!! Doh! So just 3mm of washers or something to bring the disc forward???

Yeah 3mm of something to bring the disc forward.

We've used a spacer cut up to fit behind the disc before, and washers.

Im in the process of getting a pair of 3mm plates laser cut to do the spacing, if anyone needs the same could get on the same machining job......

aint it dangerous to use washers spacing things out?

and which bits u grinding off here? i didnt think u had to do that?

cant u use escos discs instead of mondy 1s, so no spacing required?

What mondeo are we talking? And what is the item list? I've just found some
pads for a fiver.. I'm guessing there on the list of it's a mark three that is.
