    Caliper carriers need a breaker bar or an old ratchet with a length of pipe over the handle for leverage. (I found a section of trampoline leg worked a treat!!

    The pistons CAN be wound in with a big G clamp and a pair of mole grips but far easier (and less risky) just to buy a winding kit from eBay for £30 odd.
