Default 1991 240sx Brake caliper bracket size

I broke off a bolt while changing rotors and pads, and ordered a A1Cardone replacement. Part # 14-1517 . The fitment table claimed it would fit but it doesn't. I had taken measurements of the bolt holes which were the same, but I had to grind down the baffle to get it to line up. I went to put in the pads and the space was way too big...




now what?

wanted to pop in and say that this "solution" thread-update is a step that is too commonly missed. have been guilty of it myself.
now when I come back and search this, i'll know what ends you came to, vs. most OP, when a problem is solved, the thread is allowed to die.

so, attaboy.





concerning the part, call customer service with whoever you purchased the part from. grinding stuff down kind of kills the opportunity to make any returns, but they should be able to provide the proper part. I've seen more non-abs S13s in my time than w/ abs, so parts companies should be attentive to this. it's a logistical issue that they need to correct.

if you are having trouble getting cooperation from whoever you get parts through, go with rockauto. my experience with their customer service has been positive and informative, and they are also ridiculously cheap and fast.

worst case, just have to find somebody with brakes. just offering up my experience.

I've had a similar experience.
Ordered a new caliper from autozone for non-abs since they had nothing in stock. Part didn't fit because I apparently had abs calipers on my car (despite the car not having abs).

Luckily for me though, autozone had plenty of abs calipers in stock so I was able to do a quick exchange and get on my way.

I ended up getting remanufactured calipers (left and right) from raybestos. pretty good price too. I just took the bracket off the right side for now...
