    Default Changing Rear Discs

    I have been looking at many threds about changing the pads,
    Including the warning about the Piston Return Tool.

    Can find anything about the Discs.

    Can I just Remove the pads, Remove the Securing screw and the disc comes of.
    Or do I have to take off any more of the caliper.

    IIRC you have to take the caliper off to change the disc... but don't quote me, it's not something I've done yet.

    yep, take the caliper off ( two 7mm allen bolts) and dependant on which discs you have you may have to also take off the caliper carrier bracket (two E18 bolts).. apart from that it's just the securing screw and a hammer to tap the disc off..

    don't forget to clean the hub face off very well (back to bright metal) before fitting a new disc to avoid brake judder
