AL-KO tag - rear brake pads.

The rear brakes on our Kontiki tag are starting to squeal under light braking at slow speeds. Had this on cars before so no big deal really as I'll take the pads out, clean them up and re-fit.

Question is though, if I need new pads for whatever reason, are the calipers made by AL-KO or Fiat? getting new Fiat pads shouldn't be a problem (I hope) but I've never seen AL-KO pads advertised anywhere.

Thanks John.

Any idea what I should be looking for on say the Euro Car Parts web site as only fronts are listed?

I was going to use the "thanks" button but it seems to have taken a holiday lol.

Ours is an Auto Trail tag and we had a problem in France and the garage tried to get Alko parts but couldn't so I contacted my dealer in the UK and they said they where Fiat parts , they gave me the Fiat part numbers and I gave them to the garage and they got the corresponding Bosch parts as Fiat parts would have taken to long to source
