Re: front pads 156 1.8???
When in doubt..get the gas gun out..heat them up..let them cool a bit then spray with penetrating fluid (WD 40 will do..but Penol is better)..Then heat them up again..then spray again..Then I often find the best thing to do is leave them overnight soaking in penetration fluid. They usually give up without a fight then.
Also "little knocks will move great rocks, but bigger knocks will break them"....so don't overdo it.
Yes, get pro tools if the ones in your kit seem to be wilting.
Caliper retaining nuts are complete bugg*ers. I bought a new set for my 164TS front calipers..there were five bolts in the pack from Alfa????
