Front brakes

Do the caliper pistons on the front brakes of a 145 'screw in' as per the rears, or just push in. On a simillar vein does anyone know the correct brake bleeding sequence?

They push in, the rear twist motion is becuase of the way the handbrake works.

The front pistons just press straight in but you were better off asking anyway

As for bleeding the brakes you'll find in most threads that people will recommend you get it done professionally especially if you have ABS.

Hope that helps,

I've just finished bleeding my brakes with a 'one man bleeding kit'. This just connects to the air from your spare tyre and has a chamber full of brake fluid. It pressurises up the brake system and then you just open each bleed screw until clean brake fluid comes out.

It works perfectly for me.
