    Default First Rear Pads DONE

    Just finished my first set of rear pads. A big thanks to Gsi3.2 for the great How 2 guide & also to the guys on its discussion thread.

    I just wanted to post to show off my little tool I had to make



    It took me an hour to make & then only 15 mins per side to replace the pads. It worked a treat. Very simple & cheap (Free from bit I had already).

    It is just made from 2 large washers, 2 small bolts & 1 large nut & bolt. Now easy was that

    Hope this helps some1 else.

    Thanks

    Ade
