HIDE THE SWITCH AND USE IT AS AN ANTI-THEFT DEVICE,
Another Tech-53 Innovation! Rear disc conversion for Mk1-2-3 VW, with new electric parking brake technology!
This brake kit has been developed for the MK1-MK2-MK3 226mm rear disc set-up. can also be used to upgrade rear drums. More information further down, for that application.
The kit was developed mostly for a very well-balanced brake bias. With the weight transfer during braking on our cars, if the piston size is too big on the rear calipers, the rear will lock up before the front; Not something desirable. The piston size in this kit, is the same as the Scirocco 16V rear calipers, and smaller than the Mk4 alloy calipers, that have too much of a piston area / clamping force, to be properly balanced with our earlier W/C models.
Here is what you get with the kit:
2X Red or black powder coated (special / custom made) 2 piston calipers
2X Red or black electrical parking brake calipers, dash button, and complete wiring assembly. Also included are the laser cut pad spacers, for a perfect fit on the 10mm wide rear discs.
Pads for all 4 calipers
2X Stainless braided lines with 90 deg. JIC / proper fittings. These thread into the fitting UPSTREAM the axle beam, bypassing the hard line on the axle beam.
2X 6061-T6 aircraft grade powder coated mounting brackets.
All necessary hardware / shims / washers.
What you need to have prior, to install this kit:
Disc stub axles, OEM 226mm Discs (P/N 6N0 615 601)
To convert from drums, the upgrade kit can be ordered with the check box. This includes left and right stub axles, 2 bearing kits complete with seals, and all necessary hardware. We strongly suggest to use / change prop valves, to the adjustable Wilwood offered in option , if upgrading from drums.
Instructions are on web based link in PDF format, with plenty of pictures, or on our youtube channel. Same installation as the mechanical e brake caliper. But add the electrical portion.
