Default Info about brakes on a 1998 Peugeot 306 LX estate.

This might seem like a daft question, but I need a new rear axle on my car and therefore need to check if it has drum or disc brakes before I order. I've looked in the handbook, on Parkers and Wikipedia, but it's not actually stated anywhere. My guess is discs on the front and drums on the back (with ABS because it's an LX)?
The car is off the road atm so I can't just take it to the mechanic to check. Could anyone with the same model, or familiar with them enlighten me?

Many thanks.

Or just go have a look at the car? Disc brakes and drum brakes look very different?

Are you saying you don`t know what disc or drum brakes look like?
The first image is discs,the second image is drums, and the third image is a ABS unit.

Hi, thanks for the replies and sorry for the delay in coming back...I wasn't sure how the forums work and was expecting a notification when I had a reply! It's also not all that clear how to reply to a specific answer so I hope I'm doing it correctly? Anyway, in answer to my first reply, the last three digits of the VIN are 460.
Thank you for the other reply with photos. If I am still not sure I'll go up to where the car is stored with a torch and have a look. As to the replacement axle itself, thank you for your suggested suppliers; I already had my eye on one from IMAxles, but will check out the other link too.

Thanks Terry,

That's very interesting and could be useful for future reference! Strangely, on Parkers, under specs for my model it says ABS as standard, but referring to the photo kindly posted by Old Pug, I don't remember seeing anything like that under the bonnet! I think I better check before I order anything.

Thanks to everyone for their help...I love my car, it has been so reliable and at 20 years it does not look it's age...the only sign of any rust is a slight bulging under the rubber door seal on one back door and on the metal towing loop thingy at the rear.
I have a brilliant local mechanic who so far has been able to find me any parts I need, but last year he warned me this was getting harder, so I started looking out for a replacement. I wish I hadn't bothered! I bought a 2003 5 seat VW Touran ( petrol), with only one previous owner and low mileage...but all these darn electrics do my head in! The first thing to go was the power steering...luckily for me, just as I pulled away in front of my house. Suddenly it was like driving a WW1 tank ( I imagine). That could have been very nasty if it had happened somewhere else!
The next thing to go was the alternator, which happened on the way back from a long journey at night... the battery started to discharge but I made it to the top of my road before I lost the power steering again!
Since those parts were replaced it has behaved itself...but it's got to go because the interior space for transporting stuff is rubbish compared to the Pug estate and each Touran rear seat must weigh about 25kg if they have to come out...which they invariably do to get any space.
Fortunately I wasn't ready to get rid of my Peugeot and it's been SORN for 8 months...so a new axle, and hopefully she'll last a few extra years!
