    Fair do's mate, the most difficult bit is getting the pistons wound back in as you've to push and turn. Apart from that nothing too difficult

    Check the "How-to's" I'm sure there is one on here somewhere as I had a read of it before I done mine a few months ago.

    Fairly easy job once you've got the right rewind tool!!
    I had to modify a mates tool but soon had the job done. If you know which way round a spanner goes you should be fine
