    Thumbs down what a clown!!!

    hey folks,well,for a little while my rear pads have been grinding like mad,really really bad.so me thinkin,the last two cars i've had i changed the discs and pads myself no problem.so gives it a try,first problem my rewinder was to big by a few mm's.so I tried something else,got it rewindin but it wasnt going nowhere so took the caliper right off,by disconnecting the brake hose stupid thing to do now,rewound it and the fluid started coming out,knowing that i'l have to put somemore brake fluid in i just put the new pads in and put the caliper back on.but the disc,i couldnt get that off ass the nuts at the back where on far too tight for me to get them off as i just had the car up on axel stands .feel like a complete plonker cos i've gone and mucked it up thinkin i knew what i was doing.sorry folks if you'l think am daft but you learn by your mistakes.cars out of use till the problems resolved for now though,am not stupid enough to go out and about in it just yet .owell theres my stupidity for the day people.think this is what i'l be needing

    dont remove the bolts mate

    just remove the grub screw that holds the rear disc on and the disc will slide out of the caliper opening

    bit fiddly but works a treat

    bleeding the brakes, your on your own mate

    get yourself an easybleed! connects to fluid resevoir and tyre valve pumps the fluid through so you just have to open an close the bleed valve.

    well...out first thing this morning near enough.need the car takin in to get the discs off because the nuts on the bracket for the caliper is far too tight for taking off on axel stands,so just changed over the pads and left the old discs......so more pads next time round then no doubt.but even better,went and got the EEZI bleed kit from halfords at a think was £16.49 if i remember right and what can i say.for a novice like myself that was pretty damn EEZI so if anyone else does it and doesnt want to do it 'the old fashioned way' then thats the way to go thanks ballan22direct.good advice on that anyway
