    T6.1 Front Brakes on a T6

    The T6.1 340mm brakes are a different caliper to the T6 but use the same disc. Will the T6.1 calipers fit the T6? I've got the opportunity of a complete T6.1 340mm brake front setup for very little money and was hoping I can drop it on my T6

    Any special tools needed to change T32 brakes all round?

    Hey All, I am in the process of swapping my brake discs and pads all round thanks to @Jayjmac. Do you need any special tools/products to swap them aside from a copperslip grease, brake hose clamp, impact driver etc? Cheers for any help you can offer. :thumbsup:

    Difference between T6 & T6.1 rear calipers?

    I know that all T6 rear brake assemblies (calipers / carriers / pads etc.) are all the same as each other, but is there a difference between these & the new T6.1 complete assemblies? Any brake gurus out there that can advise please? I have tried the search function , but to no avail sadly :(

Can anyone confirm if it is a...
