It belongs to a work colleague who camps down here during the week and returns home a long way away at weekends. It had a graunching a the back due to worn disc pads and there was no way it was going home without being done.
Owner procured a set of cheap pads for a tenner and we set to work. The caliper and piston were well seized on the bad side and getting the piston to retract was a real struggle. Much WFA profanity eventually got it moving but we'd have never done it without the use of a pukka caliper wind-back tool and a beaker bar on the end of it! I thank my lucky starts that a visitor a few weeks ago left a wind-back tool here - it truly saved the day
The other side was a doodle in comparison and we could almost have wound the piston back by hand!
We went for a spin in it afterwards. It's one cool car with a 9,000 rpm redline
A good test for me. I was up late and working. Ended up going top bed at 10:30 but was still up at 04:00 this morning and quite perky
The WFA Toolkit prevailed once again then. The 101 piece profanity toolset does help as well.
