I do so love a happy ending, nice one Len.
Chuff, dont take to many Pms with Marty, it ends up costing you money with all the good things he finds to buy. :)




Too late. Money's spent.

Sorry Beevee, I don't keep rear brake kits or mountings, copy Len's CAD and source calipers from any mk1 Focus with rear disk, make sure to get the carrier with them.
I just had a brainwave, fiesta is smaller so maybe the handbrake cable could be taxed from them..🤔

Yes, beevee was correct, maybe it could be both, a carrier bracket lol. Focus has 4x flex hoses at the rear which join together thru a standoff , strange but eh !!

Cool.
 
My plan was to take cables, hoses, calipers, nuts, bolts, pads and everything else attached to any of the items I've just listed in order to dummy it all up and make it fit.
 
Was thinking of getting the disks as well, but I'm just going to straight up buy the slotted & dimpled disks I posted on the previous page, as long as the disks on the donor wreck are the same size of the ones I'm going to buy. Don't see the need to spend money on used disks.
 
I'm not sure when I'll be going to the wreckers to get it all, but I'll check out the hand brake cable on the Fiesta & report back what I find.
 
Thanks to all. There's more than enough information in this thread for me or anyone else to follow.

I believe there is 2x rear rotor sizes , 1 , the standard 1.8,2.0 everyday focus which the size is about 258mm.
Or, 2, the big guy ST170 rotors of 280mm. Since only 128 ST170s ever sold in Aust, and prolly about 5 left on the road now, I think the smaller of the two is best option !

The ones I linked to are 252.5mm diameter so just any old bog stock Mk1 Focus then.
 
Too easy!

Chuff, the carrier is the hub that everything attaches to. Focus has independent rear suspension with the hubs attached to the rear swing arm axle stubs.  I replaced the standard rubber brake hoses with stainless flex hoses and had to make some minor adjustments to the steel brake line mounting block configuration on the diff. I completely removed the standard Mk2 handbrake assy. Also didn't keep and on-sell the larger 10" rear drum brake set up from the RS- silly me!
Cheers, Len
