Hi There, my 65 plate Aygo X is needing new front pads, which i'm planning on replacing myself with after market parts
I've replaced pads on a few different cars over the years but on thse cars you could push the calipers back with a G clamp,
I'm aware that on more modern cars you need to turn the caliper at the same time as you press it in.
Ive also heard rumours that the calipers can only be retracted via computer hook up ( unsure about this one)
My question is
has any one replaced the front pads and if so are the calipers turned clock wise or anti clockwise during the process and are both sides the same? (ie) drivers side opposite from passengers side
I have read through a good pages of the forums but not found any info, if abyone can help it would be very much appreciated.
