Rear Brakes

Rear Calipers

The Ford Scorpio uses brake disks all round, ventilated on the front for all models, and vented on the rear too for the 24V. As befits a vehicle that can cruise at 140 mph (the 24V) the brakes are immensely powerful and to keep them in top condition it is essential that the brake fluid is completely renewed every 24 months.
