RX Rear disc removal, prompt/any advice needed
In overalls as I write!
Stripping the rear brakes down, I have to replace the discs and pads, at present I have only managed to remove one torx retaining screw after much soaking!
However, my main concern is firstly:
Do the rear wheel Hub nuts have to be removed on an RX4 to free the rear discs?
If they do have to come off, is the passenger side Hub nut a left hand thread?
Or if the Hub nuts have to come off are they both conventional Right-Hand threads?
Or if it is not necessary to remove the hubs nuts and the discs are just held on by corrosion, the quickest and best method of removal is ?
Any hints tips would be extremely helpful, I have also bought a Cube piston wind-back device to attach to a ratchet and screw the rear pistons back, this is the bit i thought may give my trouble!
Finally, is it necessary to fiddle with the hand brake mechanism apart from leaving it off!
RX4 information is extremely sparse and I wondered if there was any differences in process, through it being nominally a 4 wheel drive.
Currently in jboy75's garage:
RX4, Rover 400, some motorcycles
