View Full Version : URGENT HELP, cant get E series caliper off?

29-05-2011, 12:39 PM

i am changing pads and rotors, i have removed the 2x 18mm bolts from the rear of the caliper, i have tapped the pins out and removed the pads, but the caliper seems to not be able to be removed from behind the rotor, unless you split the caliper in half with the 11mm bolts at the front?, can anyone advise what im doing wrong here please?

Well this reply will be late but that is all that holds the caliper on.
The disks can limit the caliper movement but you just need to use some force.

The rear rotors are even mire fun with the internal brake setup for the hand brake.

Hope you got it done.

I did this about 3 months ago - all four rotors and pads with new paint decals etc..,

Thanks SV300,

yeah once i changed from the small hammer to the bigger one, the rotor came loose and everything just fell away, simple in the end, what was meant to be a 30 minute a side job just took a little longer on the first side.

Thanks for the feedback on the rears, will tackle that one when the rear pads need doing i think, and will keep youu on file to contact if i get stuck now, heehee
