    2.0SRi Lucas rear brake pads

    Anybody know the part number, and how much they are from Vx?

    Any idea what they should be with trade club too??

    and is there anything different about doing rear pads, I've done fronts hundreds of times, but never had to do rears before??

    You need to wind (rotate as you push) the pistons back in rather than push them straight in like the fronts.

    you can get the proper tool form halfarts or bodge it with -pliers and other strange contraptions

    I'll be bodging it. No point buying a tool for 20 squid when it won't need doing for another 70,000 miles!! (They've lasted 78,000 this time).

    Thanks for the part number Geoff.

    Tim me ole mucka! the rears are easy as! Get vauxhall pads for best fit (I learnt the hard way) and you'll be swinging.

    As the all mighthy astra god geoff has said, you just need to rotate the piston back in (undo the bleed nipple first)

    i found it easier with the rear caliper off, then bleed the whole system much easier.

    I'm gonna be fitting 308's at some point shortly, and will fit braided hoses so the brake fluid will be completely changed then.
