Pad Size. 1995 Clio 1.4

I need to fit new front brake pads to a 1995 Renault Clio RT 1.4 hatchback. Having fitted them to other cars I did not think there would be a problem. I was wrong!
I learned from Haynes esteemed book of wisdom that there are two types fitted, Bendix and Girling. From a post I found on here it seems that I have to take the wheel off to check which type is fitted? A pain, but okay, I would do it. Then further knowledge from Mr Haynes tells me that if it is Bendix there are a further two types of pad, which depends on the brake calliper bore and the piston bore. So it sounds like I have to remove the pads to measure the piston before I can order the pads?
Or is it at least possible to know which size pads they would be if Bendix?
Thanks for any suggestions.
