That makes sense Peter. But the under dash socket it self was probably standard.
I wouldn't mind one of I can find one but it's not critical.
I am not on Facebook.

If they prove to be just too difficult to undo or do break off, then a quick solution is to use a banjo bolt bleeder which replaces the banjo bolt where the flexi hose attaches to the calliper.

Be careful when undoing the bleed nipples as they often rust in and are a pain to release. If you break them off be prepared for more pain……..

Thanks Peter - I'll be drenching them in fast release spray and leaving for a day or two before I touch them!

Hi Clifford

I believe it was an option at the time.

Hi

I bought mine from EBC, not sure if they still have stock, but a lot cheaper than that.

Hi

Yes, dual circuit on the front, single at the rear.

Haynes will list the brake fluid though any Dot 4 should be ok

I just bought a full F&R set of these for £76 from Ebay seller "agrauto" who were very quick and professional.

Forgot to mention that I also pushed the piston halfway out and it is very clean and not corroded at all, looks new in fact!  So I decided to replace the rubbers and leave it alone.  It's obviously not the binding problem, although the rear of the disc has a very deep score in it, also the brake pad, which leads me to believe that it may have had a stone stuck in there?

I'm taking your advice and decided to actually do the brake refurb myself - after all, how am I going to learn anything if I outsource it to someone else?
2 hours of straining and rolling around on the garage floor in 26c heat, I am wondering if I made the right decison!   The carrier bolts are super rusty & tighter than a ducks rear end on a winter pond and only after using a 3-foot long socket extension have I managed to get them off!   The discs and pads are actually virtually unworn, although obviously quite a few years old, which leads me to think that they were changed then the car was laid up for a few years?
Anyway, I'm fitting new discs and EBC pads, (copper grease on the rear of the pads), changing the fluid and hopefully will have a sweet-braking car again.  What brake fuid would you guys recommended btw?

Incidentally, I didn't realise that the front calipers have dual brake lines attached - presumably this is down to a dual-circuit brake system? (I haven't read the Haynes manual yet!  Grin )

This is not me - just dropping this on here in case anyone is after a set - they are the same as the discs I bought recently from Bielstein in Germany but obviously cheaper as no import tax!  Smiley
