When greasing the rear calipers where would any excess grease escape to then
The grease can only go one way and that is out through the weather seal. Towards the piston end the grease only goes as far as to the o-ring of the stub shaft. I did the modification as the handbrake mechanism on the caliper kept seizing up. The grease only lubricates the stub shaft on which a lever is attached. Handbrake cable is attached to this lever.
