Installation Notes:

Your original bearings and races can be re-used. New disc brake wheel seals must be installed. For 1968.5 and later models, you can add the kit from the options above.

All brake parts must be thoroughly cleaned and disc brake grease must be used on all brake pad contact surfaces or brake squeak and vibration may occur.

15" or larger wheels must be used with the disc brake kit. 14" wheels can not be used.

The stock master cylinder can be used with front disc brakes. However, if you are converting to 4 wheel disc brakes, you must install a large bore master cylinder.

If you have a 1966-1967 Beetle or a 1966 Karmann Ghia:

This kit uses the 4-lug VW pattern instead of the 5-lug pattern that came original on your vehicle. Click below for the 5 lug version:
