    Ok cool cheers :) I went and got my wind back kit from work earlier but just wanted to make sure I used the right part as I've got a double kit so can do clockwise and anti clockwise,my n/s/r caliper is quite tight and I think its a reason behind my dragging issues I've been having,will just carry on until it starts moving a bit easier cheers :)

    Clockwise mate, but when replacing the new pads, (if that's what you're doing) you need to wind the caliper back in manually until you only get about a 1mm gap between the piston and caliper, (yes it's a pain because you have to keep taking the pads out... But it's for the best) because just winding them all the way back and pumping the brakes up can damage the caliper's internal mechanism.
