    Rear Brake Pads & Caliper Tool ???

    Do you really need a wind back tool to change the rear pads, or can i use something else?

    anyone any ideas?

    Cheers

    You can do it with some big grips and a plastic hammer but it takes ages,much better off with the wind in tool,takes seconds.

    You can make one with an old socket, then just screw the piston in with a ratchet.
