    Default Rear brake rewind...

    Is this what I need:

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165469

    Does the Vec have left handed pistons?

    I've heard people talk about having to modify the rewind tools to fit, is this one of the ones that needs grinding?

    THIS is the one I have, but I bought the proper adapter from Ebay. You can file down the ones that come with it though and it will fit.

    Hi mate the vec doesn't have left handed thread, This is the one you need http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165469 although as you said you might need to adapt it slightly, Easily done though.

    oops too late

    the lase tool is the one for the job its getting the correct adapter thats tricky. the one they list for the vectra is for the veccy B not the C, the adpater that works for the veccy C is this one

    Cheers guys, I'll just get the Laser one and find the grinder if I need it...

    It's a bit pricey, but the alternative is getting the garage to do it... No brainer...
