After loads of trouble budging the two big bolts (19mm, BTW, not 17mm) I hauled out the breaker bar. Bingo, they moved fairly easy with that. The impact driver shifted the disc screws no bother. I did use a hose clamp, but once every thing was disconnected, i was able to then controlably run fluid through, without spilling it everywhere. Brakes bled fairly well, and got the handbrake adjusted nicely. Took it out for a run, pulls to right side slightly, but that is new pads both sides, new disc and caliper on passenger, old disk and caliper on drivers, so hopefully when I change the other tommorow, it will even out. Think I probably took a longer than I should (about 5 hours), but that was down to the two big stubborn bolts Put plenty of copper slip on the back of the pads, on the hub and wheel faces of the disc bells, and on the sliders of the caliper. When I get the other side done, I bleed both sides through again, just to be on the safe side, felt softer than before, but just as powerful. -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot)
