    Default Brake piston wind back tool?..

    Ive wound pistons back in the past using a g clamp and needle nose pliers but its such a PITA and can go wrong so I want to buy the tool to do it properly.

    Ive been looking and have come across quite a few different styles of tool. there's a cube type thing that fits on a ratchet, a tool with only one size winder and then theres complete kits with various pin configurations. I know the hole spacing is 21mm for the vectra but I cant find any information about the individual tools or their fitment. Does anyone have a link to buy the correct tool? As this is likely to be a rarely used tool the cheaper the better if possible please.

    Cheers

    Dave

    This is the one most people have bought including me,but the adapter you get with it doesn't fit the caliper piston.You need to buy that separately, there should be one on the bay for the correct size unless you can borrow one,pity you dont live closer to Derby,you could'v borrowed mine.

    Here's a kit on ebay, bargain. You can pay this for a single tool with one adaptor.

    Cheers guys. At that price it's probably worth buying the kit.

    I bought the laser one and simply filed the edges of the alignment pins so they fit the Vectra pistons. Worked perfectly.

    I bought that same one a few weeks ago and used it a couple of times now.

    It works fine and as a bonus you have the tool for left and right hand threads if you ever change your car.

    The cube one dont work as you cant put any pressure on with it.
    Ended up using long nose pliers and a lot of pressure.
    Did this at the same time as fitting my lowering springs.
