Re: front brake caliper removal 93 trafic
Hi TT and Renoir White.
Sorry my first post seemed a bit vague. Most of the post is not shown but I have no idea why.
I have changed both pads and calipers on quite a few cars and small vans during my motoring history but this really has me stumped.
I have removed the wheel and very carefully examined the whole of the caliper most carefullybut still cannot see any way to split and or remove it.
Renoir white, you have done this. Where exactly are the retaining bolts please ??
I cannot find any accessable bolts or studs
From RW's post (linked in my earlier post to the exact spot post 117) there are no retaining bolts.
Split pins through locking plates.
2nd photo he provided highlights them.
If your caliper is different, best pop up a photo and see if anyone recognises the type.
