Hi All,

I'm going to be replacing all my braked pads & discs in the next few days and was wondering weather it's a left or right handed wind back tool i need to wind the calipers back on my Mondeo?

Thanks!

Where are You, I did all the discs and pads on mine on Sunday. If your near Guildford you could borrow mine, works on both sides on the rear (didn't know there was a left and right), however the front it doesn't work as the bore is huge. I easily squeezed the fronts in with a pair of grips tho.

i believe you only need the wind back tool on the rear anyway. The front i usually do with a bit of flat plate across the piston, and a clamp. I have used a small grinder spanner, and plumbers pliers to wind them in before, but be careful of the seal, and put a bit of pvc tape round plier jaws to stop them marking the piston.

Its a right hand thread, so you'll need to turn the rear pistons clockwise to retract them into the calipers.
