U dont say what size they are,what car they came off,and what car they are MADE for.

They can be fitted by urself.Maybe do it at the rock with a few people to help,its been done before. You should always renew pads and discs together. Best just to get a brand new set urself imo. And if ur wanna upgrade fit a set of astra units (if they'll go)

Al. Doing it at the rock was not a "please do it this way" it was a "it can be done and im sure people will help as theyre there" Plus. Its hardly pissing about putting discs and pads on. Caliper removal-ok-make sure thats done proper but discs and pads could be done by an 11 year old after one tuition change.Hardly rocket science

Thatll use a different caliper and need the caliper mount somehow modified wont it? Best get someone experienced to do it. This guy offerin 20 quid is a good price and if hes done this conversion on a corsa before then itll be fine for him to do them.

If hes not done the conversion before then get a garage to do it to make sure the caliper is mounted firmly and the brakes bled properly

Sounds like a bargain matey happy

If the pads are from the original donor car complete with the discs then they should be fine to use.

Allot of the Vauxhall mounting points are the same so it sounds like they MAY simply bolt straight into place happy

Sanchez your wrong, my fiesta has worn wishbone bushes and I knew that anyway not the brakes tease

Does sound like a bargin, if you need a hand give me a shout as I did a brake conversion on the escort (Swapped for V6 Mondeo brakes) and if I can source the carriers I can finish my fiesta one (4X4 Cosworth conversion)

If the caliper and disk fitment are the same its a nice cheap upgrade.

However, if the caliper mount is different, and the disk is a different stud pattern, you could spend over 100 getting mounting brackets made up frown

Apparently though, Vectra disks and calipers are a direct fit wink
