Re: RX Rear disc removal, prompt/any advice needed

Managed to do the brakes on Tuesday all day, drilled out the three remaining screws, knocked off the old discs, cleaned up the callipers, penetration fluid & brake cleaner. Fitted new discs, used cube to push back left piston, fitted pads and bolted the left-hand side together, wheel back on. Started to finish off the right-hand side, more corrosion, pads a bit more fiddly, as the cube had to work really hard to push the right-side piston back, ( Maltese cross pattern). Eventually, got the pads in, assembled in the late afternoon/evening pouring rain, wheel back on now got 4 matched Bridgestone Dueller's & boy does it stick to the road and drive better.


for the help
