Does anyone out there have the relevant piston rewind tools they'd like to sell?
I need to replace my discs/pads all round so I'll be needing the tools for the rears. Having never used such a thing before I don't actually know what I'm looking for :eek:

I did ask our local Fiat dealer and he said he can get hold of them, no problem. Although he doesn't know how much they'll cost and they'll take a full 6 weeks to be delivered :eek:

And then the turd never phoned me back with a price.:bang:

They're about £16-18. Remember to back your handbrake cable off otherwise it messes the handbrake automatic adjustment up

Am I the only one to get to 60k miles and the rear pads are only half worn?:)

LMAO @ PNL. Me and Chris might end up in a bidding war for it one day, so it will be worth the bollocking you just got :p

Anyway,


I gather that I would need to buy 2 such tools - a right hand and a left hand. Is that correct?

Also is there a specific size adaptor I would need to buy? (assuming I chose not to buy Phil's set)

I shouldn't be spending out anything lol, so I don't want to stand in the way of someone who actually needs it at the mo. Mine have got plenty of life in them at the minute. I think I'll just go for the cheapy Stilo specific ones when the need arises. It's very rare I work on any one else's car anyhoo.

It really is far, far easier with the proper Fiat tool set (you get one for both sides) and at only about £15 or less then why bother with anything less :rolleyes:

right, where can i get one of these fiat specific ones? My local fiat place insists that they don't sell them and they are workshop issue only.. I don't wanna pay for a expensive set when i'll never use it again

Yep fiat are now putting the block on people who want to buy this tool ..one of our welsh lads has had the same reply when he requested one be ordered..my guess is that they are NOW loosing trade as more people become hands on and are doing this job them selves..your best bet is to get a kit ..I found mine on ebay..and as I have already said has other application in the kit as well which allows you to do the cars of friends and family..a sound investment as far as I was concerned..its payed for its self ten fold ..
