I was checking which brake pads to buy and it turns out that the pads I need depends on the brake caliper I have! - Lucas or Somitomo.

See: http://www.japarts.co.uk/shop/?sh=searc ... 3&search=2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Is there a standard brake caliper for an EU7 (1.4 5dr 2001)?

alot of manufactures do this actualy and sometimes you can track down which one you have by the regestration and sometimes you can't. so the best advise i would give would to see if the part company you getting your pads from can track down which ones they are if not. what i usaly do is ask to buy both and then for the company to refund the one you don't use, i don't see why they would have a problem with that but if you cant do that best option is to take set of pads of and take them down to the shop and use them to identify them.
hope this help

fortunatly for me the difference in the two was quite clear and I was able to see enough in the caliper to identify the right ones.

All done, new discs and pads fitted at last!

Cam belt next!
