Brake Pins/kit for Brera 2.0
Hi in the process of swapping the front pads which have worn out for a set of greenstuff pads from EBC.
As seems common in the threads I had problems
a) Removing some of the pins
Resolved by a few goes of penetrating fluid and going away to do something else in between
trying to drift them out.
b) The inner pads don't seem to wear a lot and stick badly. I would have taken the calliper off but didn't have the correct size D Star socket. The simple answer I found was to use a couple of small g-clamps which fit perfectly on the metal edge of the pad and the surface of the pin holder
so I could just wind the pistons in and jiggle out the old pad.
Now ideally I would like to replace the pins and spring BUT I can only find them as an Alfa part at around £50 plus per set ! Alfa Romeo OE 77364914 which is more than the pads.
I have looked around at Pagid,Apec,Bremtech Mintex etc where there are lots of reasonably priced kits for other Brera models.
Any suggestions for sourcing these parts - thanks.
