    Got the laser 1314 tool today, from machine mart, £11.40 cheaper than Halfords, day off wednesday, so I'll see how easy it winds the pistons back to fit new rear pads ...

    Hi
    Got home early today so did the rear pads, what a doddle with the rewind tool, works perfect :Grin: I spent ages winding the pistons in, on my old volvo S40 , Did it with long nose pliers and it took forever :Frown: 2 mins for each caliper with this tool and it fits most modern cars ... a good buy ...
