ESPACE MKII Back Brakes Compatibility


Car is a Renault Espace Mk II - Petrol.

The back brakes are drum type and the Haynes manual shows that they can be either Bendix or Girling.

From the images in the Haynes manual I appear to have the Girling type but I can only find Bendix available to buy.

The shop states the two products are interchangeable but also need the pistons changed as they are of differing size dependant on the manufacturer.

That the 2 manufacturers product would be interchangeable makes sense except for the fact that the images in Haynes show the point where the calipers fit at the bottom to be quite different.

Anyone know anything about this? I don't want to buy them - try to fit and then find I am stuck - as currrently travelling.
