    yes about 60 mins start to finish if you have right tools and all goes well, garage might try for 2 hours though if you go to one not sure what the book time would be im sure there is a link to book times or someone will let you know

    Cost me for putting in a new thermostat which i supplied so he just had to fit it,he supplied the rear discs and pads new.
    Total cost was £130 i guess this seems reasonable?

    You can do it like that but you run the risk of damaging the piston wheich will then score the bore.

    For the sake of £35 its worth getting the tool rather than risk needing a new calliper.
