rear brakes and discs
« on: February 26, 2022, 07:07:38 pm »
I am going to change my rear pads and discs next week when Halfords get them in. I have been looking for the tool for winding the piston in. They have them in machine mart but would like to know if i need the left or right tool. Can't believe Haynes haven't produced a manual as yet, so am having difficulty locating a workshop manual. Don't like the idea of starting the job and hitting a snag and having to walk miles to buy something i didn't know i needed like this tool. Don't know if the disc is fastened or free floating. Any help would be most appreciated. When i have done the job will do a write up on best way to do it.

I wouldn't get a fancy wind back tool, many of the universal ones are good enough.
Just remember to take off the fluid reservoir cap and wrap plenty of paper/rags around the area to catch any pushed back fluid over flow.
I haven't done my CX5 rear brakes yet, waiting for some warmer weather.
In the past on other vehicles I have left the piston pad in place and used a G-clamp or lever!

Best of luck with it all

My brother in law had one from when he owned a Mini, it wasn't a perfect fit but it worked. Thanks for replies, it didn't take too long a passed MOT so all good.
