Brakes problems - just one of those days... (with pics)
Been servicing my front brakes - the N/S calliper has been sticking recently causing the pads to all but disappear. I decided to replace all the pads and discs and clean up the calliper to get it working again.
Total disaster!! Firstly, the ebay seller has let me down and the discs don't fit! The offset is about 5mm out and so they hit the dust guards. Even with the dust guards removed the calliper doesn't go on without locking the disc
Also the calliper is much more siezed than I had anticipated!! The rubber boot had partly come away and allowed a lot of rust and debris in, so I think I need a new calliper. Damn.
Does anyone know if the N/S and O/S callipers are the same?? Bleed nipple is upside down on O/S so I am guessing they are?
Also does anyone know the bleed nipple size and thread? I would like to get some easi bleed nipples to make life easier next week.
The callipers are ATE and not Lucas
