Trafic 1989 Disc

Hello
Has anyone replaced front brake discs? My old 2L petrol camper with only 75k miles needs replacements and the hand book suggests I will need a specialist tool to remove the Disc. Mot failure so I need to get on with it; can't be off the road when the sun shines! Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Trafic 1989 Disc

Hi Nick2L
What has the MOT tester said about the front brakes? Are they too thin or ridged? Could they be skimmed on the vehicle if they are that rough?

Re: Trafic 1989 Disc

If Unipart have identified correctly, looks like a disc with bearings and wheel hub bolts through... though piccie only shows 5 holes not 6 as on RW's.... solid not vented disc as well so ???

Can't see a need for special tools unless to press bearing in.

Re: Trafic 1989 Disc

Looking at the picture, Centre nut undone, then calliper off..
hold this up on the spring, dont twist or strain the flexi.
Then calliper carrier off, then
Wheel back on, dont tighten the wheel nuts allow a slight play in the wheel.
Underneath, piece of wood , with a hammer, using the wood so not to damage the wheel, unless you have a rawhide hammer then wood not needed, ..
Hit the wheel, keep turning it, the hub will come lose.
Once the hub has started to move,, then......
Replace the wheel nuts, turn the hub anticlockwise, and put a bar between two wheel nuts, down to the floor, this will stop the disc turning, crack all pins holding disc to hub, once cracked.
Pull the hub off, dont get tempted to do this BEFORE you have got the hub to move, in case the hub wont budge, you can then still drive it to the garage...
Good luck

I remember the first time I saw a universal remote control, and I thought to myself.
