hi guys not had my veccy long got the thermostat and waterpump and timing belt done. Still getting a p0036 now and then but not really to concerned about that atm going to change the o2 sensor then the maff if i get no joy when i clean the plug. I better get back to the point before I rant along all day.
I heard a nasty noise at the back of the car to i took the wheel off to check the pads was nothing on them at all. The calliper was a nighmare to wind in was rock solid had to get a shifting spanner on the redwind too to budge the nasty git.
Now Ive only done one side want some advise on the retaining spring looks like no ones ever touched the back brakes at all. The springs are rusted in one end snapped off ( sitting flush with the calliper) and the other side isint snapped off yet incase tehre is a better way to loosen it. Its the same on the other sides calliper with the spring.
I have ordered new springs the question is will a little heat loosen this up (wd40 didnt help more a rust weld rather than rust) . If not is it safe to drill the rust welded bit of spring out that still in there. I dont know how far the brake fluid travels along in there last thing i need is to pop a leak. The thing is i dont know if the hole is straight through or at an angle cause they are all rusted in any advice would be appreciated. I suppose if i mess it up can go to the scrappy and whack one off really want to avoid damaging it though.
