Re: Trafic Rear Disc / Pad Replacement

Hi, thanks for the assistance. Both discs and pads now replaced, thread-lock used to secure hub nut etc. o/s done first, disc and bearing pulled straight off. n/s took some bashing as bearing sticking on stub axle. Colours on stub axle indicted some heat. Comparing bearings, n/s still smooth, o/s not so good.
Load of torque req'd to break caliper bracket bolts and with the lower one very restricted access with lower swing arm, brake pipe and cable.

Pretty fortunate that it didn't let us down on a recent 4k France trip with caravan in tow.

Currently in Briggo's garage:
