Good Evening, 

I need to replace the front brakes on my super 6, but have seen some contradicting information as to them having Ford Hubs, and MK2 Golf Hubs. 

Does anyone one know the correct hubs that are fitted please?

Most calipers can be simply taken apart, cleaned and rebuilt. An airline can be very useful in releasing stuck pistons. I usually do it in a vice or with some wood to stop the piston flying too far.

I could rebuild it i can find a seal kit, but that would probably mean pulling it apart and measuring the bore then trying to find the kits

You won't know if the seal is salvageable until you take it apart. It is surprising how little debris can clog up a piston. Most seals seem to survive this. The seal between caliper halves is usually generic and can easily be replaced.

I always change the whole caliper if there are issues with them badly sticking. It is a messy job stripping it down, brake fluid is horrible stuff and will damage paint work etc. In my opinion brakes are ultra important and need to be spot on at all times !
