    If you have a sealy set its the same size as the actual rewind tool itself (about 19-20), but there usually easily done if not siezed with pliers.

    not being funny all these fellers saying use this or use that " it's easy " yes it is till it goes wrong and you cant wind it back and your car is on stands and your snookered and end up having to pay top dollar for the kit. It take a fair amount of force to get them started winding back in. I would search for the kit or try to borrow one if I was you just in case its sods law it will go wrong without a back up plan (just my advice been in position above)

    i agree with you there with the pliers i did mine the other day, if using pliers the trick is to turn the piston 10mm (no more ) anticlockwise and then turn clockwise to wind them in

    i could not get mine to go in at all until i found this trick

    to be honest with you winding the piston in is the least of your worries as getting the caliper carrier torx bolts to move without slipping are the worst bit due to lack of room and how tight the ******s are
