Hi guys s,

Took my wife's car in for discs and pads...

It's an 2007 07 2.2 Santa Fe Diesel 7 seater Auto, but here's the rub, it's an Australian import so Austin/NZ spec.

My brother owns the garage, changed the rear discs and pads no problem, but the issue is the front discs on our car need to be 300mm and uk spec cars come with 321mm, the pads are the same.

Question any idea of the part number for 300mm discs for our car or what other hyundai/Kia discs will fit...we're really struggling and cannot afford to have the car off the road for too long due to work and family commitments....


Any advise would be warmly received.

Many thanks

Simon

What make of discs have you tried?
Some brands may have the option you want.
Blue Print are very good, Japanese Asian car part specialists.
Good luck, Chris

Do they really NEED to be 300mm ?
If so why ??

If the pads and calipers are the same......and the larger rotors will bolt right up.....I don't see the problem.

Tried Blue Print, no good.

Any larger will hit the calliper...321mm did not fit hence the post

Get the specifications for the 2001-2006 SM Santa Fe - wheel size and disk size has gradually increased over time so the earlier version may suit.

A more expensive way to solve the issue is to fit calipers to suit the larger disk.

The mind boggles as to why anyone would import a car all the way from Australia when the almost identical vehicle is sold here in bigger numbers - but it's here now and you have to deal with it.

We've sorted it. And we don't import it. We bought it from a dealer knowing full well it's an import. The disc issue is just one of those things and I saved a packed as the dealer was aware that not everyone would take on an import with kilometres on the odometer. Speedo has been changed and we have full receipts for all the correct procedures.

We saved a ton and few hours researched solved the problem. Interesting not on this forum though....

It's been less than 3 hours since your original request.
I think your expectations are a little high. ;)

You aren't REALLY going to leave us hanging, are you ??
Morning all, right well fingers crossed 300mm Tuscon discs are a direct fit. Final road tests happening this morning but no difference according to spec sheet....

Looks like a simple solution!

Will update later once I have the car back home from my bro

All sorted, fully road tested and stops far better than before, just need to bed discs in for 200 miles or so now. Cheers for all the posts.
