Had to change the rear pads and disks on my motor. Got a good life out of them 35 thousand miles. Bought the rewind tool. It did not fit. So Being on holiday from work. I popped to work and got my workmates to mate me an adaptor with the 19m/m centres.
Then the fun started. I could not rewind the piston back, it was that tight. I was not sure if I was doing it correctly as it would not move. I phoned several members to check that I was doing thing right. I have changed many pads over the years. But non that needed the piston rewound. After talikg with Duncan. I realised I was doing thing right. But I had to clamp off the flexi brake pipe and remove the caliper and stand on it and with using Two adjustable spanners and all the strenght I couls muster, it finaly moved, when it was moving it was very easy. Why it was so tight at the start I dont know ( the other side was no problem). I then refittted it all and came to bleed the brake. Bleed nipple would not undo, I started to round off the hexegon. So I gave up and thought undo the flexi pipe again. Got dsomeone to press the brake pedel and bled some fluid out. Thought I had won, so off I went to try it. NO brakes I had to pump them to stop. So I thought " oh heck" what now, did not want to break the bleed nipple off. So I went to my local MOT garage to where I get on brilliantly. I have a very good frendship with them, I have been known to have made them psrts for the garage equipment, so I was hoping they could help me. To cut the story short, they had to get the welding tackle out and heat the nipple. That did the trick. We bled the caliper and the brakes are ok now. What a job that turned out to be. VX do seem to like to tighten the bolts don,t they. The caliper carrier bolts were so tight too. I had to hit the ratchet all the lenght of the thread to undo them.
I would like to give praise to Bassets Pole Garage in Sutton Colfield for their help, they are a good set of lads.
" Oh" and they did not want any money for what they did for me. Top team "eh".
