image.jpgThanks for the how to
Did my rears today
Had to drill out the disk screws and tap them out again. No problem 5.5 MM drill and 6mm tap. Ended up borrowing a wind back tool, can't believe you could do them without one.
Painted callipers as well
Fronts next weekend

I'm doing this at the weekend. Think im ready following this guide but with one question. Do both pistons rotate in the same direction?
The tool I bought has both left and right handed threads.
Cheers for the info.

Hi,
I've ran into a bit of an issue while doing this, pretty much everything is seized. When removing bolts holding the caliper to the carrier they have sheared off so I've got the caliper off but there is still some of the bolt threaded into the carrier. any advice on what to do?

Del

update:
I've priced up a new carrier bracket and they are dirt cheap so i'm just going to replace the entire bracket. only issue is the bolts are excessively seized, might need a few tips and tricks for that still!

A proper penetrating oil such as plus-gas.

A penetrating oil, blowtorch and a soft mallet did the trick 😂

I use one of these for the fronts and it works a treat.

And one of these little fellas for the rears. Rotate both sides clockwise to rotate pistons in.

Another thing I always do when changing pads is to remove the sliders, clean them with brake cleaner and then grease them. Sample of some grease below.
