I have not ensured the accuracy regarding the tools (sorry!) as I had the rear brake pad pictures on hand and fitted together in the file that I previously did on T31 front brake pad replacement.

Please remember to use red rubber grease (like Castrol).

Umbongo's advice as suggested:
it doesn't have to be Castrol as long as it's proper red brake grease that comes into contact with any rubber parts on the brake caliper. The red grease stops the rubber dust covers from going hard and splitting and stops the bush on pin slide bolt from swelling up.

Thanks Umbongo :bow:

Did mine the other night with help from a friend. Bought some Brembo pads online, back and front cost about £65 delivered.
