    Default brakes

    Hi i have recenlty had the brake warning light come up on the dash, so i purchased a set of front discs and pads from europarts. Am thinking of changing the rear discs and pads also now as be as well do them all. When i put the new discs and pads in will the sensor realise this and go off or does it need reset or anything done to it to make it stay off? Thanks.

    Hi, am brand new to this site and am soon to be attempting to change the rear pads on my 2008 1.8 16V Vectra C SRI. I previously changed the pads on my old corsa and used G Clamps to retract the piston however I understand that you need a piston retraction tool for the rear pads on a Vectra C.

    The only one i've found so far is £32.99 from Halfords;
    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...7c00d9e9e#dtab
    but i'm not sure whether I will need an adaptor. I've read somewhere that I should be looking for an adaptor called Vectra/9-3.

    Any advice on whether I would need an adaptor (and if so where I could find one) would be gratefully received! Also, if anyone knows where I would be able to find a cheaper piston retraction tool would be a great help too!

    Thanks,

    Hi Bud
    You will need a brake linning wear sensor or the light will stay on.(about £10 )there is only one it's on the front N/S calliper.
    As for the piston retractor I allways use long nosed pliers,it will be easier with the proper tool no doubt.
