They're all right hand wind to retract.

On a mk1 you have to be pushing them inward at the same time as winding them.

If I knew then what I know now, I would've bought a 2nd hand fusebox and the modified elm32 cable.

Mine was £320, and a Ford mechanic coded it for me as a favour

Fusebox. Water ingress.

I got o.e. complete arms (FAI, I think)  from my local factor around £45 each, and that was much easier than changing either the ball joints or the rear bushes.

If it's the rear bushes, then the arms have to come off the car anyway.

1st one took about 35 mins, 2nd one took 15.

In Topic: Left Front Brake Disc Warping.

I'm having this exact same problem. I replaced the discs and pads all round when I got the car 2 years ago, but the judder/wobble returns within about 10k miles. I might try the guide pin test but...

I also think that there a bit of a 'lip' on the caliper carrier where the pads go. Is it ok to grind it smooth again? I also think that the pads are not coming off the disc all the time
