type 12 herald disc brake problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a Lotus 7 which has type 12 Herald disc brakes on the front.

My problem is the front RH caliper has cracked and I have replaced it with a new one, now the brake pads will not fit back in to the caliper. They barely fit and grind on the disc.

Any help or advice would be most appreciated.

Type 12 pad lining material tapers in slightly at the bottom. Type 14 pad lining material is pretty much as "square" as the backing plate itself. You can also see the difference at the top of the backing plates; Type 12 having more prominent "ears" where the pins go through.
