Searched 16 pages of Brake related stuff and can't find an answer ....

Trying to change my rear discs, removed the caliper, undone the allen key and wiggled, pulled and thumped the disc, but it doesn't budge! Never seen any mention of a puller or any other tool being required, so how do you acually get the old disc off ... ?

Told you it was a dumbass question! :( LOL:

Ok, maybe I just need to hit 'em harder!! T:
I've lent my rubber mallet out and was a bit fearful of belting them with a metal mallet! I'll thump 'em with a chunk of wood and the mallet tomorrow.
Just want to be able to put it back together as was if I can't change them!! I:

If you are replacing the discs anyway then whack em with the biggest thing you can get a good swing with. Just make sure your van is well supported on the stands :eek:
LOL:

I just like to be able to back out if it goes t1ts up! Need to take the dog somewhere interesting everyday so he doesn't eat me, or the house!

Once you have the screw out that holds the disc on
The disc should just drop off ,but if it is rusted in place a very firm wack with a knocking stick will get it off

Have you got a caliper rewinding tool for the pistons?
