  1. brake caliper paint i have a spray can of black VHT high temp a can of proper 2k clear lacquer a can of standard self etching primer okay to do a thin coat of etch, followed by VHT then 2k clear coat of top search the hell out of google, hard to find info about if these spray paints can handle the heat. i know the clear 2k will be tough as anything. vht is high temp. has self etch got 200 Celsius ratings?
  2. I've just gone to change the brake fluid on my AEX 6n, did both rears fine but got to the front and it looks like someone has taken a hacksaw to the bleeder screw? Can't get a grip on it at all with moles, or by heating and bashing on a smaller socket. Its seized in pretty tight anyway. As it had got dark i tried continuing the change by taking the brake hoses off the calipers and just letting the fluid run clean, then tightening again. This was probably a stupid move as the brakes have basically lost all power, only biting the tiniest bit when the pedal's on the floor 😞 Is there any way to do this? Don't want to take the calipers off as the rubber boot on the bolts is also missing, ie a horrible, rusty, dirty job. Cheers
  3. I need to replace the brake caliper piston seal not ordered any yet. What's the best way to fit new ones? I noticed two seals, one on the inside and one on the brake piston itself. If that makes sense?
  4. Here's the details: 1 year ago I had an new caliper on the drivers side because it was playing up. 3 weeks ago I had new discs and pads on the front because the drivers side was tight (A four wheels move without any brakes) , the drivers side takes about 5 times as much effort to turn it. They all stop when the brake pedal is applied, they all release but still the drivers side is what I call tight (binding) Temp at the moment when driven Passenger side 25 C, drivers side 40 C. Now the amount it binds differs day by day. I've had it where you could fry eggs and even hotter the disc was bright red. So last week I took it to my local garage and told him all the details. He fit a new caliper and hose on the drivers side and gave it me back say it was fine. It's still the same!!! With or without the engine the symptoms are the same. It's like this drivers side has more base line pressure than all the other. I thought it may be the abs sensors so I took out the abs fuses and tested again. I've checked all the other hoses for bulges all look good and clean. Thought it may be the master, but I would of thought this would cause all the brakes to be applied. Brake pedal is highish, engine off, press, press, firm. Engine on with foot press it dips a little. Now I have another ABS controller that I could put on but if anyone has any input I would be well happy. Cheer, Nik
