Rear disc pads.

Does anybody know how to change the rear disc pads on a 1.6 Stilo fitted with Bosch brakes?

I have changed disc pads before without problems, but I cannot seem to get the piston to go back into the caliper. I presume you have to do something with the handbrake mechanism (which works the disc pads and not seperate drum brakes as on previous cars I have worked on).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Chris

Re: Rear disc pads.

must be the same as the saabs then. you can make a tool with a bit of plate and 2 small bolts to wind the piston back in.

Thumbs up Re: Rear disc pads.

The wind back tool required is NOT the general type one of the calipars has a left hand thread and the other right hand thread the Fiat tool comes as a two part tool kit
