New EBC Red Stuff brake pads
Have just fitted EBC red stuff pads to the front of the car, will be doing the rears at the weekend.
After much cursing and swaring and having a little tantrum they are now fitted. Still trying to get the black off my hands!
Quick overview of front pad Change.
Loosen wheel nuts
Jack and axle stand car (do both sides its easier)
Ther is a spring on the caliper joining the two parts together, ping this out, remember how it goes. It is attatched to the brake pad with a little flange that points downwards. This need lifting up and out to get it out.
Remove little plastic cover over caliper pins.
7mm Allen key removes pin.
G cramp to pull caliper pisten back in.
Grease caliper pins, screw them back in, stick on covers
(now is a good time to make those calipers pretty, remember the paint, mine are now chav red!)
Stick on wheel, do other side, lower torqu upe wheelnuts. Go for a gentle drive round the block, after pupming pedle.
Will give a write up after the rears are done and they've bedded in a week.
No photos as it was too dark and stressful. Will try to get some of the rears, and sone photos of the pins on the front but they're fairly obvious.
