I'm currently in torrelavega and I need to get rear brake pads for my fiat Ducato tag axle.

Google is useless at finding me car parts suppliers , so far I've been at a tyre place a mercedes dealership and a car accessory shop none of which do parts and don't speak enough English to tell me where you get parts. They repair cars so they must get them from somewhere.
Can't find a fiat dealer online either
Losing the will to live and need these parts kinda soon.

Anyone know what the Spanish equivalent of a motor factors is ?

I use www.mister-auto.pt

It's all in Portuguese so if you can't work it out use the English site and get the code you want and then use the Portuguese site. www.mister-auto.co.uk

They can delivery to various shops etc so if you are staying or going to be near a place check for collection points in that area. Bit Iike you can do with eBay and have stuff sent to Argos etc in Uk.

Where abouts are you at the moment?

You could check out a scrap/spare car yard, they can normally source new parts quickly as well.

The Spanish for car/van parts is autorecambios.

You could Google for "tiendas autorecambios" near to you.
One big national chain is called "ad autorecambios"

Rear Brake pads are "pastillas de frenos traseras".

Almost all will insist on seeing (or you telling them) your VIN number on your V5 to establish exactly which pads are needed.

What chassis is it on. It could be Al-Ko not Fiat in which case you could do with a MH Dealer or order from the Uk and get them posted. All your chassis number will give you is the Fiat parts.

Ok thank you to all who replied ....panic over I found a place that sold and repaired motorhomes so I thought I would go ask them. Two brothers own it and one spoke some English he got the details from the tech plate under the bonet and managed to get the numbers needed to decide which of three possibilities were fitted he has ordered them from his supplier in Santander and they will be at his garage by 1 pm tomorrow
€113 euros for 2 sets of brembo pads which hopefully I can fit with no problems.

I've never done the rear ones on a tag axle before so I'm hoping there's no complications.
Anyone know if these do the handbrake too or are they like the van with a separate shoe for the handbrake?

Errr, what a typical British/colonial view!!
I think they would say that you as a visitor to their country don't speak enough of THEIR language????:rolleyes:
:D;) :whistle:
(Mind you, the technicalities and infrastructure of the motor trade are not covered in most language study courses). :LOL:

Now now. .I try to speak spanish as much as i can ...but i didn't know the Spanish words for the parts or how to explain what I needed.

You can't just walk in to a place here like the UK and buy parts
So much easier to describe what I needed in English than in Spanish and Google translate was useless

Just being mischievous :whistle:
14 years of my career was in European marketing so I have a bit of Italian, a fair command of Spanish and more or less fluent in business and social French and German. However, when I joined a new electronic equipment manufacturer they said I (a non-techy) was the perfect chap to translate their corporate brochure. Boy did I struggle with translating text along the lines of:
'The robust 19" stove enamelled modular toroidal transformer amplifier mainframes have three configurable 75Ohm D-sub microphone balanced inputs and two 100v line inputs constantly monitored with a 20KHz surveillance tone.

It wasn't helped by my American boss's attitude of: 'Never mind that nerdy tech speak. Sell 'em the sizzle not the steak'.

I eventually cribbed the translations from a competitor's literature. ;)
