View Full Version : Clio 172/182 brakes on a valver??

Would these fit straight on a valver/williams?

Or is there a kit to fit them on?

After driving the wifes 172, the brakes piss on my valvers so was looking to see if they can be swapped over?

bit dramatic mate!!dunno if it can be done or not tbh

not likely to be the brakes themselves neway, newer renaults are cursed with overactive servo units, so u fart near the pedal n the car slams on the anchors! hence the car 'feels' like the brakes are top!personally i hate this servo assisted feel to the brakes n its a pet hate with modern cars. i prefer having a bit more feel in the pedal like on the valver! go side by side with the 172 somewhere n both slam on from same speed at same time, then judge it! :wink:

Believe me, mine are SHITE beyond belief.

Before I go buy new discs/pads and lines, I was wondering if the swap was possible

Get some 4 pots. Look in group buys. Northy is sorting one out now, can use 172 discs if you want I believe.

I'm using grooved discs and red stuff pads have no problems whatsoever on track...

Just stick with standard. I now have new rear calipers, with std discs and GSF cheapo pads, and up front just the std solid discs and Ferodo DS2500.

Pedal travel is now vastly reduced after fitting the rears and it stops fine.
