Rear caliper tool?

Finally had the opportunity to replace knackered rear caliper last weekend (will post some pics shortly for those who've never done this).

However - I want to change the pads on the good caliper, but am struggling to find a suitable caliper wind back tool. My local parts shop sold me a Draper tool (part no 52334) - a "cube" with 5 key patterns, none of which seem to be quite right. And searching on the web I can only find multi-part kits costing 50+.

Has anyone got a tool that fits the 166? If so, can you let me know the details please!!!

Re: Rear caliper tool?

I've always got away with using long nosed pliers and brute forse, but met my match with the 166, failed to go in. Bought this

LaserTools | Brake Caliper Piston Re-wind Tool Set (1314)

Halfrauds sell them for £20 of so, GermanSwedishFrench do it a bit cheaper. The cars listed on the back of the pack is a bit misleading, all Jap cars of 10 years ago, but it fits loads, Alfas, Saabs, VWs etc
