Brembo brakes query

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm not actually a Renault owner, but I have a question regarding the Brembo brakes.

I would like to know if the Brembo front brake callipers for a 2014 Renault Megane RS are the same as Brembo front brake callipers for a 2008 Megane R26 sport.  I have spoken to a couple of dealers but cant get an answer.  I would appreciate it if anyone can provide some info.  I am going to fit them to a non Renault vehicle.  The  2008 Megane R26 sport callipers will fit but I can't find any second hand.  One wrecker has some 2014 Renault Megane RS callipers but I don't know if they will fit for what I need.  Alternatively, if anyone has some Brembo 2008 Megane R26 sport callipers they want to sell, I'm interested.

The Megane brembos from the 2008 model are the same as the Clio 197 and 200 from memory.

There are a couple of people wrecking them on here.

Is it to fit a Honda?

No, the 2014 Meg RS brembos are not the same as the 2008 Meg RS brembos. Not sure there is a difference between the R26 and normal RS brembos but I don't think so.

What those differences are besides looking different I'm not sure.

As said above, the 2008 Meg RS brembos are the same as the Clio 3 RS brembos, maybe you could find a pair of those.

I can confirm they are indeed different. The later model megane brembos have larger pistons than the earlier models. They have the exact same bolt spacing so can be mounted interchangeably, however the later models are slightly wider and thus you will need more wheel offset to avoid wheel contact to inner rim.

I will have a pair of Brembo for sale from a 2009 Clio 197 R27 if interested.

Confirming 197 = meg 225 = R26 (colours vary) so grab the 197 calipers.

Meg 3 (which the 2014 would be) are different. I am pretty sure the caliper centre to mounting bolt offset is different so not perfectly interchangeable over the same disc.

  • Thanks everyone for your feedback.  I really appreciate it.  I'll contact Jimmyauyeung about his brakes.
