I am assuming you mean FRONT? There were some special rear hubs made that allowed a replacement disc.

The M100 front hub is unique to the car. The vauxhall version is nowhere as stout. The SJs "Replacement" is the Vauxhall part and to me, It us not a proper part and shouldn't be used.

There are used hubs offered around periodically and I would look for one of those on eBay UK or eBay US. From Lotus, they are £323.53 so a good used one would be a reasonable option.

Even with International shipping, it would still be cheaper. Maybe his hub can be "repaired"? A little more detail might generate some suggestions.

Thanks for the quick reply!

It is the front hub, sorry about the lack of info.

Does anyone have one sitting in a shed?

Hi, cjay,
Hope you’re doing well.
For the avoidance of doubt, do you mean part no one (A100C6007F, circled) in the attached picture from the deRoure parts diagram?

(Not that I have one!)

John

May be useful

I think it is the same pattern as the Astra/Cavalier/Calibra 4 bolt fixing obviously, but as John says they look a bit light. I suppose you could try a Holden race specialist who may do a more manly version.

It's not the astra, I've bought and returning it's not the same.

It is the same bolt pattern but nowhere like the mass of a real M100 hub. Bob B. once said they would interchange, but he was way off.

Calibra's pattern seem to be 5 bolt configuration from what I can see so that seems a dead end. Astra hub bolt pattern appears correct pattern and size but I think the middle hole too small for bearing. I bought a new front wheel hub from SJ sports and that has been fitted with new bearings.
