vented calipers.

Post by V480TI » Wed Oct 26, 2005 7:41 pm

Finally got a set of vented calipers, and I busted one of them :badmood:

Each caliper has 2 screws holding the brake pad against the disc.(I thought)
The thread in the caliper itself has gone so I presume that I now have a change of wrong wear on my new vented sportdisks.
(it,s just one of them I managed to screw up).
Do not want that ofcourse.

What can i do ???

thanks and greetz

Think I was half asleep when I posted the first message.

Ofcourse I ment the rear calipper.
It,s the screws hidden behind a rubber(plastic???) thingy.

How can i fix this besides a other calipper ???
