Hello James and other parking brake mech experts.
I found your learned articles on rear caliper dismantling in the archives.
I have reached the stage where I have removed the circlip at the base of the
cylinder. Now I need to extract the stud. Any ideas? I tried putting the
piston back on and levered the piston upwards. Al that happened was the
outer shell of the piston came away from the inner bits.
Do I need to remove a washer first? I can't see one.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
p.s. the last one I did was from a 1983 car. The parking brake section was
held on by three bolts. Once I'd sheared those off, the rest was easy.
