    I replaced mine with EBC Turbodiscs, which i think work out cheaper than from the stealer, and don't forget you'll need to do the pads as well when replacing brake discs.

    pfft, I always say pads and discs are easy 'till the retaining screw on the discs chews up completely and you have to drill it out. But I now have access to a workshop with ramps, tool and gas so if in doubt I heat the bugger. You both forgot the most important tool - a dirty great hammer!

    Alternately, you could trog along to Halfords and purchase the correct Sykes Pickavant brake caliper wind back tool for around 16 of our UK pounds.

    Save yourself the hassle lads...get the right tool for the job!
