    Hello there,

    according to ETKA it's listed as below:

    Protective boot/sleeve set for guide pin
    Part number 8E0 698 470B

    Slide guide pin with pad carrier (up to 1991) up to VIN 50-M-027-000
    Part number 857 615 125

    Slide guide pin with pad carrier (after 1991) after VIN 50-M-027-001
    Part number 357 615 125C

    You might find a set of slide guide pins on eBay, or if you enter part numbers into Google it should hopefully show you other options.


    Hope this helps

    Si
    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.

    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it, been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver. Plus I'm on The SEAT Forum.

    Brake carrier measurements ending 125
    Length 182mm
    Width 105mm
    Height 85mm
    Weight 1.05kg
    OEM Make: Girling

    *****************************

    Part number 357 615 125C
    Pin Shaft length ?? Not sure about length on this one could be difference of 2mm ?
    Thread size M8 X 1.25mm I think ?

    Brake carrier measurements ending 125C
    Length 185mm
    Width 105mm

    The Slide guide pins possibly are £8 to £12 for a set per side.

    Pad carrier complete with slide guide pins are £25 to £50 for aftermarket ones, but for OEM from Classic Parts or through Heritage, are something like £150 each.

    The only part number/item that I think is obsolete now is 357 615 125B
    All the others listed in above posts I believe are still available.

    Hope this helps
