Careful not to twist your brake line by accidentally spinning the caliper round while working, MOT failure if spotted!

Also, I've just done the rears on mine and don't know about the fronts, but the rear calipers need to be wound back in, not the push-in type. The n/s wind in clockwise, and the o/s wind in anti-clockwise. If there are two notches in the caliper face, then its a wind-in type. You can buy special tools but beware as some only wind in a clockwise direction. I used an angle grinder spanner (for changing grinder discs) with no more than thumb pressure and didn't have any problems (other than winding it the wrong way at first!).

I don't recommend this method, as the other end of the clamp will be pushing on the handbrake bracket and you'll end up bending it.
