411 brake callipers

Post by Rob 400e » 18th September 2020 - 7:55pm

411 brake callipers, can anyone tell me whether these callipers are fitted to other VW ie bay window camper vans etc. May be needing a couple soon for my 1972 411. Outer seals have perished. Any pointer much appreciated.

They don't fit any other Volkswagens, but repair kits & pistons etc are fairly easy to get hold of

Try Brakes International - brakesint.co.uk

They are in Bolton and Rochdale. They do Budweg Reconditioned Calipers as new but with Stainless Steel Pistons and Repair Kits / Stainless Steel Pistons. I bought a Pair of the Reconditioned Calipers when I rebuilt the whole Brake System on my Type 3.

Cheers Steve, I bought a re build kit from brake parts but didn’t need to strip the callipers. Just removing the brake pads and spraying plenty of brake cleaner and gently depressing the brake pedal and forcing the pistons back has done the trick. No sticking on now. However the perished outer seal will I assume cause problems in the future.
