Lazer brakes

Post by mojo98 » Tue Mar 09, 2021 12:28 pm

Well as you all know I've been working (not much since contracting covid) only the bonnet to go back on the complete all the work on the engine/gearbox, need the bleed the clutch, and after doing the brakes, will need them bleeding as well

But time to get it finished. But rear brakes are siezed solid, so new caliper's required and discs and pads.
Stripped out the passenger rear and found this

:o
So removed that and test fitted this

So off to the power coating place to get them powered coated.
Have new caliper's and pads but no discs, :o
on order should be here tomorrow

Mojo,
I’m surprised at you :?
To let it get that rotten :shock:

As it one of your ‘daily drivers’, would you could consider using fibreglass/ABS plastic ones.

Saving the metal OME one’s, for the ‘show’ cars :idea:

At least it’s an easy fix :)

I think you are lucky that the bolts came off without breaking or rounding off :o

I'm ashamed, but I blame it on parking it on the grass last year during lockdown, I was using MrP. It just fell to pieces while taking off the caliper, the more I touched it the more fell off, the drivers side wasn't has bad but removed it as well,
No need to put fibreglass on, I gave them to another member, plus I have 5 sets of brand new steel ones

Only snapped 1 of the bolts, drivers side rear abs sensor, but OK, will not move as its a very tight fit,

Note to self, more wd40 next time

Well done Malcolm.
I was going to mention replacing all the brake caliper bolts for stainless , especially those on the rear calipers. Rounded heads are a real pain , best avoided.
Denso tape wound round the shaft on the rear calipers where it enters the ' lip seal ' in the caliper body helps too.
Those calipers were the design of an evil genius , too clever by half , with a fatal flaw.
M515 CEW will be due for it's MoT soon, would love to know who owns it now.
It lives within 50 mile of Rhayader , somewhere.
Definitely worth having for spares if it ever appears on eBay.

Thanks for the advice John, always try and use new bolts when doing jobs, got a few in stock, but will be calling into the local supplier tomorrow
Also have a roll of denso tape and use it 👍👍
