need some window closers/latches for the rs windows as 1 of mine are snapped so window cant be shut properly :doh:

does anybody know if the zetec s ones are the same or something from a escort :thumbsup:

also my car currently has odd rear drums (long story needed car for work)

so the problem i have is instead of just getting the bigger drum i would like to buy a complete beam/axle so i can refurb and polybush whilst off the car, is there a difference between abs and non abs axles (mk3)

or could i put a zetec s rear axle and drums on without abs and bypass the abs as it is different abs to the mk3 apparently

any help would be great thanks :thumbsup:

The mk3 only has abs on the front wheels, so abs and non abs beams are the same other than those with anti-roll bar mounts, you can fit zetec-a beams but I think you have to change the rear shocks aswell but not sure

Was looking into the zetec s beam as ment to be stiffer, maybe chris could comment if shock fixing is different at the back to the beam ?

Also when I have been looking for drums I have seen 1s for abs and non abs ?
So if I just got a rear beam with the 203mm drums without abs there would be no problems with the braking system when swapping over from my beam that has abs as don't really like messing with the brakes
