    Default Urgent rear brake help



    Hi guys hope you can help.

    im doing the rear pads on my dti
    and i was winding the piston clockwise for ages and nothing was happening, so i turned it anticlockwise and the piston came out further so now i knew i was going the wrong way so i started going clockwise but the pistonstopped turning and seemed to seize, i can unscrew it but not screw it back in any help appreciated as ill have a long walk for the school run,

    thanks ian

    The piston needs pressure for it to wind back,if you're using the wind back tool it should do it automatically,but if you're not then you need to use a bit more pressure and maybe a bit of wd40 to help it move freely......

    I hope you haven't stripped the thread - it's really easy to do if you don't use the proper windback tool. Here's hoping you haven't!

    hi guys thanks for the help.
    i found a local motorfactor that hired out the wind back tool, made sure it was the right size, cycled the 4 mile there and 4 back. only to find none of the attachemnts fit .
    well i tried again eventually it was a case of trying to locate the threads and using windback tool without the adapter on and the circlip pliers, once ir was located it went back ok. did the other side no probs.
    My pads were down to the metal so the piston was right out.
    its took me 5 hours to do a 40 minute job.

    only thing now is my brakes are reall spongey and prob need bleeding

    ill do it later sigh!

    Thanks again for help


    Cheers ian
