MK5 2.0 Estate brake shoe size? (dumb question)

Recommended Posts

Hi, this may be a dumb question, but i'm away from the car and unable to check, but i;m looking to order a set of rear shoes and cant work out if i need 8 or 9 inch shoes?... both seem to have been standard at some point.

 

Anyone know whats likely to be in there?

 

It's an '82 Mk5 GLS Estate 2.0

Should be 9” but the very last ones had a slightly different type of shoe. I would check physically what is on the car.

As above be careful with the 9" as there are two types with different handbrake fittings

9 inch yours should be the late type being an 82 as said as long as its on its original axle.
