Re: Brake replacement

I will go with the method defined by the engineers who designed the system rather than an alternative that risks damage thanks!

Heaven knows what that lot will be like when it's had ten years of road salt round it! :roll: :roll:
No worse than the existing setups with the levers and handbrake cables. It may actually be less prone to issues as the moving bits are less exposed to the elements ;)

Re: Brake replacement

I’m not convinced it’s necessary. The handbrake will only move the pads a max of 2mm to close them up when you apply it, there’s no difference at all between what it does on a new or part worn set of pads if you press the brake pedal a few times before you put the EPB back on.
