Renault 5 Rear Brakes ID Help Please!!!

Postby riber3 » Tue Aug 29, 2017 7:35 pm

Hi,
I have a 1996 1.4 Renault 5 that has failed its MOT on rear brake balance and since I cannot find a brake pressure regulator on the back axle I have found that its been fitted with later type brake cylinders that incorporate pressure regulators in the cylinders
I am not sure if they are Bendix or Girling but the cylinder has Bosch 20 stamped on it. They are drums by the way
I have a photo so any help in identifying them or a part number would be most welcome as II need to order some and most of the suppliers are not giving me a lot of info.

Sorry I cannot load photo at present

Just found out there are 2 types for either Bendix or Girling and they are handed. Still not sure which ones I need but will be removing one tomorrow to see if there are any other numbers

Thanks for that I don't use it often but if you have a link I can go and check it out. In the meantime I did manage to find some further info that maybe of help to other members
On the nearside I removed the nearside cylinder and its stamped 871 and the offside is stamped 187 I would attach a couple of pics but cannot seem to do it!!!

There were different systems some had in built regulators abd some a remote one by the axle. Add to that various manufacturers.
