    Default Which Break Rewind tool kit to buy?

    Which Break Rewind tool kit to buy?

    I am needing to do the breaks and have decided to invest in a wind back tool kit. I spotted this one on eBay which looks good but am not100% sure if this will fit the Vectra or not. It lists several GM motor types. Is anyone able to confirm if it will fit or does anyone know the size it needs to have which I can confirm with the seller?

    I have a budget of £30 to spend on a kit so any others which you suggest would be most welcome…!

    I bought a very similar kit to this a couple of years back and have been very pleased with it - and I paid a lot more for it then - That's a very good price especially with free p+p
    Just watch the winders - one is right hand and the other left hand threads which can be a bit confusing when using!

    That's a good price, but for even less you can have multigrips and a G clamp. Works fine.

    Cool. Cheers guys. It's my first set so going to take a punt on it at the cheaper price to see how I get on... If I manage well with it I will then upgrade to the more expencive kit once this one breaks lol...

    Good top on the winders. I am assuming the capipers go back in an anticlockwise direction so need the appropriate wider tool based on that?

    Have you got a link to the correct tool? I did my discs and pads on Saturday but found that the tool I'd bought did not actually fit the caliper piston, despite being sold as - and labelled on the packaging as - a Vectra item. My guess is that it was meant to be Vectra B, not C. Paul :-)
