POPiss,what more can one say,just need a uni joint in your socket set...

Trick,with ABS,never just squeeze the pistons back,like we all used to...

Crack the bleeder on the side you are doing,push back the pistons slowly watching the fliud flow out,when piston back fully,tighten bleeder

Do the same again for the other side

then bleed the brakes anyway...

Cheers Tonie, hadn't given any thought to ABS, even on my EF just use to force piston back in order to fit pads. :shock:

The amount of skata from the rubber O rings and plungers etc is unbelivid.

Best to keep it all clean... :wink:

also use the old pad and a glamp to push the pistons back, given that it has twin piston front calipers. they're not that bad to do, are u just doing pads? or rotors as well? if you are just changing pads just undo the 12mm bolt and lift up the piston half of the calliper and pull the pads out..

altho it is better to get the rotors machined when replacing pads

Howdy Xpression, no just changing over pads. Can only machine discs once more before they are under legal width so waiting until I have to. No signs of warping this time around so hoping new pads wont highlight any problem.

Thanks for the advice.

Cheers
