Can anyone shed some light on this for me???
A few months ago I posted about my handbrake not working.........err, about a year ago actually as the MOT is due again!
I've got some second hand calipers and was prepared to fit them today, bought a Gunson self bleed kit and away I went.
Checked the replacement calipers for healthy movement......all ok (cheers Tim wink )
Checked the current calipers once stripped, they had the same amount of movement.
So I released the handbrake all the way, cable moves ok, put the offside caliper back together and it all worked fine!!!
Went for a run and found a good sized hill, hel the car no problem.........AAARRRGGGHHH
Dismantled and greased up the nearside so they now work even better than it did when I first bought the car.
Those who remember the origonal post will know I stripped the brakes before with no result.
Can anyone explain wtf is going on here?
BTW, word of warning!!! The nearside brake pad wasn't flat to the disc due to a little raised lug on the pad back. What are these for? I've made sure it goes inbetween the piston slots now. Perhaps these are pads for another 155 version? The second hand pads from the replacement calipers were the same too.
Anyway, job done, just gotta get used to using the handbrake again
