Front calipers piston removal - how and who?
Posted 12 April 2015 - 10:16 PM
i just want to get them out to have a look at the condition of the bores to see if they're worth rebuilding
does anyone know how to get them out? compressed air does not do the trick for me
or maybe recommend a good place in south that can do it for me

The thread is the same as the caliper and is much safer than using compressed air .
Its a bit messy but it's what the pro's use .

Wear eye protection also, brake fluid in eyes not good.
WHS Gav on the scene!
we want to see a hard hat,safety vest and a harness if standing up...

better brakes in breaside removed them for me, they have a hydraulic pump at the shop
damage is 4x pistons @19 each, 2x seal kits @14 each and 2 bleed nipples
all i need to work out if to sandblast the caliper or just degrease
the rotors are 12mm and rusty, so I figure that if I get them skimmed, I loose .5 and I will be within .5 limit.
i think 11mm is min thickness
any sources for cheap rotors?
