F**king Brakes !!!

got a set of pads to fit today... got the rear nearside done after a bit of confusion as to how to retract the piston.... started the offside & the piston would only go back half way. turned & turned, would only come out but not go back in... eventually it turned a bit too much & popped out, spilling brake fluid all over the place!!
Ended up calling a mobile mechanic to replace calliper next week..

Not all bad tho, it gives me an excuse to drive the PT for a few days..

I could hear the f words in M K -

Been there before mate - Old MGB if I remember correctly - rust an age being the main problem..

If you had rear discs it may have been the parking brake ?

Here's maybe a useful link for future attempts...

I wonder if the Piston retractor tool I used on my 1965 Jaguar S-type will do the job on my Lag11?, it looks very similar to a couple on that site.
