had a new hub put on last year to pass my mot.
come to change the brakes and now the caliper wont go back on properly.. its on and works with a slight wobble. ut obviously this isnt safe.. i think mybe its a hub off an ibiza or a mk3 golf..

just tried put some 13's steelies back on but the wheel is just catching on the caliper.. anyone know what nto do???

You'll find most people grind some excess material from the caliper to fit smaller wheels

i could try grinding them. i had 13 steels on when i had the motor.. upgraded to 13 golf alloys off the mk1 then had some 14's. tried putting some 13 back on and obviously have this problem.. 6n brake setups are the worst ive come across i think. lol

might take it back the garage that fitted the hub.
