front caliper brake rebuild

Postby srozick » Sat Jul 14, 2018 1:28 pm

Would anybody know where to find the part number on the front calipers? My calipers are stuck and need rebuilt. The calipers have a VW logo on them with the number "24p" but I cannot find any reference to that being a caliper part number.

4 lug or 5 lug wheels?

Karmann Ghia front brakes or SoCal Imports?

These are questions we must know the answers to to help.

How do I determine whether they are Karmen Ghia or Socal?
The VW logo is on the caliper?

Looks like a Karmann Ghia caliper to me, but I've never worked on or owned one.
