While I'm at it, a cheap and effective pad reset tool.


Recommended Posts

Bought this a few years back and it makes life a whole lot easier. Very cheap too and no problems so far -

Well worth it. Have a look on ebay. I paid about a tenner for mine.

Eedjit question now, does this tool let you push the pads in or in & pull them out ?

Cheers.

 

They are quite thick steel. I just let the pads flop out them push back the pistons direct. The faces are big enough to cover about 3/4 of each piston in a 2 or 4 piston set up, and winds them back in evenly.

Got a link mate. Only seen em for 20?

 

Let me have a look around. Mine were definitely around £10, but a few years ago. I have seen them recently for around the same. As I say, I'll take a look and get a link up.

I often worry and dread my disks needing replacing. A fu*k lot of money for some round bits of steel with holes drilled in. Go to Afghanistan and there's loads of steel things lying around with holes in!
