    I'm looking to order new rear brake pads for the estate. I've seen a pair I'm interested in and they seem to be fine. However, the supplier suggests buyers give him a reg no/VIN to make sure they will fit.

    He's now said he needs to know if the rear pads are held on with one or two pins.

    I haven't a clue and won't be pulling the old ones out to check.

    Does anyone know if I need pads to be held on with one or two pins please?

    It's hard to say without looking.

    I feared as much. Last time I got what I needed just supplying the VIN :crazy:

    You only need to remove a wheel to be able to tell.

    You should be able to tell by looking through the wheel.
