    Default Front Pads

    Hi fellas, i have a 1.8 2004 vectra estate, i had my rear pads changed recently, and the pistons needed winding back in, is this the case also with the front ones, and is it an easy enough job to do myself, i have changed pads before but not on one of these.

    Cheers guys.

    The front pistons don't need winding in, just pushing back. A small G-clamp and bit of wood does the trick. I've tried wining in my rear ones but can't find a tool with the right adapter for the piston at a reasonable price
