    Default 307 back brakes

    Hi Everyone, I am still having trouble understanding the principle behind the 307 rear brake caliper "winding/retracting tools".
    I fully understand the 504/505 principle of turning the piston to disengage the handbrake mechanism, then using a G-clamp or lever to retract the piston, having opened the bleeder to allow the fluid to bleed.etc
    How is the 307 arrangement different, as I had trouble earlier in the year and bought a Repco "cube" (which I had to modify anyway) and still had all the trouble in the world getting the piston to retract.
    If I need to buy a kit or another tool I will- thanks to the couple of folk who answered then, the "link" won't work now!!
    Thanks for any feed back

    This link?

    From memory, there's nothing particularly special about it, other than rotating the tool clockwise and pushing hard at the same time.
    Regards,

    See if UK Fleabay seller called something like "hardwick1982on" has any of the larger kits on sale. They are usually quite competitive and prompt, as they run a bricks-and-mortar shop too.

    Their telephone number is 01623 555 512 ignoring the overseas prefixes.

    BE CAREFUL as there are a handful of 307s where one side screws in CLOCKWISE but the other side screws in ANTICLOCKWISE....
    Current stash
    too many.

    Passed over stash

    I must say, that sounds like a handy trick.
