How to find brake system manufacturer

Post by JRSPIGOT » Mon May 18, 2020 2:47 pm

I need to replace brake pads all round on my daughter's Juke.

GSF car parts offers two different types, both apparently 'Hitachi' system

Mr Auto offers many , ATE/Teves , Sumitomo, Akebono ...

There's nothing on the calipers, nothing visible on the master cylinder.

How do I find the right one, since they also have different thickness, width etc

I don't want to have to take the pads off in order to measure and find what they should be.

Had a similar problem with my wife's SX4 , so many variants, and hers made in Hungary.

Most local factors can get you the right ones from the reg number. Or go to nissan if feeling a bit richer.
