    彼らはこういう古い習慣は廃止すべきだ

    Could この be instead of こういう and i if could the meaning would be different ?

    Thanks

    この古い習慣 would mean "this (particular) old habit", singular.
    こういう古い習慣 would mean the old habits as this (or these), plural
    こういう implies there may be some other examples as well and not necessarily the particular one you mentioned beforehand.
