OEM Brake Pads

Recommended Posts

Dear Forum 🙂,

Would anyone know the identity of the manufacturer of the OEM brake pads for a 2005 Toyota Corolla 1.4 D4D?

Thank you for any information.

Expect Toyota will have changed suppliers over the years anyway, so you might get several correct answers, and not sure if they do Optifit pads as well or who makes them ?

If you are so concerned just buy Toyotas own from your local dealer or Toyota Online Ebay, seem to be around £60 a front set, assume you would need to buy the matching Toyota discs as well,  though have  to ask why bother with so many good brake pad brands around at half that price ?

Toyota, Bosch or Pagid?  Inside the little box, it says; Pagid.

The point I was making is that that is a "genuine" Toyota pad.

I was thinking of going with Aisin pads since in this case it doesn't seem to be possible to know which manufacturer brake pad corresponds to a genuine Toyota pad.

Could well be part of their Optifit range, which is a lower priced Toyota branded alternative to the factory fit parts. For example Trico make the wipers used in the Optifit range, and these are different to the OE wipers.

Aside from that TMD Corp also produce OE parts for vehicle manufacturers - ie Mercedes.

The car probably has Bosch calipers, maybe even Lucas/Girling.  So, why not fit Bosch pads?  As you can see from my photo, genuine Toyota pads also have Bosch branding.  I'm quite sure I could buy Bosch pads for you car for £20.

Cannot quiet see the reasoning in fitting Aisin pads into LucasTWR calipers ?

Plus Aisin pads  do not seem readily available in the UK, and as said so many good makes to choose from, wonder what makes you feel you need to go to such alternative lengths ?

I have just bought rear disks and pads from an online supplier autodoc.co.uk. They are based in Germany and the parcel only took 4 days to arrive. The parts are made in Germany - Ridex brand. The set cost £52, which included a £3 optional safe delivery charge. The disks are beautifully machined. Will have them fitted next week.

Anyone else had dealings with autodoc.co.uk ?

I can highly recommend EBC brake pads, made in U.K., low dust, excellent performance, good life, prices are competitive too.

I actually buy stuff from autodoc.co.uk

The parts appear to be posted from Germany.

So TWR brake pads would be your choice?

The first link (Brake Pads Set Front JCP1573 Juratek 446502061 446502130 VBP2448 23766 Quality) would fit my car.

The second link - I don't think they would fit my car.
