    Must be some serious hard crap cooked up than as mine came out clean with just using a can of brake cleaner and spraying it clean... difference mine is a diesel and was more black because of the waste motor-oil I chuck in every now and than.

    • Cleaned K&N reoiled.
    • Centre right vent grille slat opening at an odd angle, pin had broken of the slat, old part removed from the bracket and replacement fitted. All joints/picots lubed with silicone on both sides before refitting.
    • Alignment check at MG Auto Motorsport and small adjustment made.

    • Rear OS disc did not have the face fully swept by the outer pad. Checked when doing the brake service and brake fluid in June, outer pad has a chunk missing EBC yellow stuff ordered to match front pads. All fitted, pins cleaned and lubed, pad contact patch on carriers cleaned up with a chisel and small file as there was a lot of thick paint which the pads had worn into so could have jammed the pads. Mistake to try and use pliers to wind the pistons back in, 2 mins later with the right tool they wound back easily with maintenance spray aimed into the seal location so it wound back round as it was grabbing and turning. Hand brake reset before pumping pedal then applying the hand brake. Bedding in should be faster due to the coating. Certainly feels better already and the corroded inner section is starting to clean up after only 6 miles.
