  1. You need to get the car up in the air and have a good look around.Cars can look good and drive well,on a test run but can also hide horrors underneath and be a potential money pit. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  2. Well done stef I must of been thinking about the rear. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  3. Number 7 Allen key. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  4. Looking at the photos I did wonder if the carrier is integrated must be older than my mk1 Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  5. The caliper sits on a carrier/bracket that straddles the disc and incorporates the pads as shown in your photos.The bracket is removed by unscrewing two 13 mm bolts. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  6. Give the pin a good once over with grease. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  7. The caliper is screwed into the caliper carrier so I think that's the part you are talking about.You done need the take the hub off unless I've misunderstood. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  8. I replaced all my old chewed up caliper nipples with stainless steel ones makings it a lot easier next time.I know yours are new but stainless steel nipples are only pence. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  9. With that car colour it has to be black.I'm thinking of treating mine with some St170 alloys refurbished in satin black on a grey coloured car. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  10. What's the idea behind the two different tyre sizes on your car? Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  11. HEL can manufacture a custom made braided line for you if there is no kit.Give them a call in Exeter it's not a problem for them. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  12. Ha ha i always have loose change in hand ready to go,no faffing around in pockets for me.Although sometimes balancing items in the other hand can be awkward and occasionally dropping coins in the the aisle is not ideal.Lol. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  13. Personally I don't see the point of changing the shock absorbers if there is nothing wrong with them.I replaced my rear springs a couple of years ago because of corrosion.I always grease the suspension arms every 6 months to eliminate any creaks and groans,works well for me.

  14. I really enjoy driving around on my Avons and don't suffer any of what you have described,only to add my car is a mk1. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  15. I'm having two Avons fitted to rear soon,I paid £144 last time with all four wheels balanced at my local. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
