    Definatly a brake caliper rewind tool set. I bought one off ebay and its already repaid it worth. Oh and get a torque wrench too, Lidls or Aldis normally have the on offer at around £15.

    This is the one I bought.

    Can you recommend one please? I see they go for about £15 upwards but don't want to buy cheap and regret it.
