    Brake rewinding tool question!!!!!!

    I'm in the middle of changing my front and rear discs. Front ones changed no problem and are rebuilt.
    But the back ones just wont fit now, i've pushed the caliper back as far as i can and they still dont fit.

    Does anyone know if you have to use a special brake rewinding tool as i've never had the need for one before? Help !!!


    And where would i get one as the cars sitting on axel stands, aggggghhhh.....

    Yes you need to wind the pistons of the rear callipers back using a special tool which you should be able to get from Halfords or other good motor factors.

    Halfords at a push, or a local machine mart or simlar place should do a cheap enough kit
