    Hi guys, just a quick question, I need to fit some new pads soon and was just wondering if the callipers were simple push and squeeze back to get the new pads in or you need a wind back tool?

    Thanks

    It's a 20007 SB 140

    thanks guys, hmm I spoke to GSF car parts and they do a universal wind back tool, problem is down here in cannes Audi dealer thinks they can charge whatever they like so it would probably be cheaper getting a tool sent down.

    i got a windback tool from halfords for about £20, 90 seems to be a rip off to me

    Fronts you push back in.

    As the rears have the handbrake mech on them they need rewinding back. I got the tool from Halfords for 20 odd quid which did the job.
