Re: Grand scenic brake caliper

They are different.
Parking Brake operating lever is at different angle.
Piston, body, mountings are all the same.

Info I have from Technical guy at TRW (Lucas) is that automatic calipers can be used on manual systems but not vice versa.

I believe this is due to electric brake malfunctions when manual calipers have been fitted but whether just a few or every time I don't know.

Personally I'd fit recons not second hand if this is the reason for the question.

Edit, just found the sheet the guy sent me, different arms, stop levers and cable fixing positions
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
