Volvo model and year that used the vented calipers


Recommended Posts

Volvo was strange with how they mixed parts, every '84 and newer I've seen had them. They had ABS in 93 and optional in 92, those cars have different calipers. Some earlier cars had them as well.

Volvo 240, any year.

But you have to specify VENTED, as they randomly

got vented, unvented, square and pie- shaped.

Ok, I lie about the square and pie shape... but the part

WILL be called out vented or unvented-- if you have

vented rotors, you'd want the vented caliper...

Just to throw a wrench in the works. Gelling or Ate? All Turbos had the vented Girling brakes. This might go for non turbo glt in 81 too. I could be wrong.

I have to come to like the ceramic pads. Yes I know they aren't as performance oriented as others but they still work well and VERY low dust and don't rust to the rotor after a week at the airport.
