Removing brake calipers
I'm pulling the brake calipers off and I was looking at Steve and Zach's sites for pictures and I have one question. Steve said to </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
[Drive the catches into the slides one at a time

by removing the bolt, then punching out the spacer.
[/ QUOTE ] Which to me seemed from behind the rotor. I'm sure either way works but for some reason I'm still not getting it. It does seem that you can just use a punch from behind. Is there a pin inside those slide that help them expand or something? Do I punch out the pins and then the slide? Or is it the same. I just don't want to star hammering on something and then it becomes one more thing to fix :shocked
Well, this is my first 4x4 and the first time I've had to take all of this apart. This means I get to go buy some new tools [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Hopefully somebody can help by the time I get back. Thanks.
Steve and Burned, thanks for the pics that you both have regarding brake, spindle and hub removal.
