No, you turn the disc to access the knurled knob on the adjuster through one of the holes. Use a flat bladed screwdriver, insert into aligned hole and lever the knurled knob up or down. There has been some discussion on which way as I believe they are the opposite way round on each rear hub. Trial and error for that one. There is also a Know How document on adjusting the cable at the handle end. viewforum.php?f=105

Links to any useful information are always acceptable

Bleed bottle should have some fluid in to start and the tube submerged if bleeding brakes, (to track air bubbles), not necessary when just allowing excess fluid out when depressing pistons. That's the way I was taught to do it.

First I have heard of this method. Russ is in Liversedge, West Yorkshire, where are you based? Russ has his own T4 and is very reasonable with prices. You can PM him here username "Russ"

I've replaced pads all round and done it in exactly the same way you have, as I am sure many others have, without any problems.

Hi All.
Today the new brake pad sensors i ordered arrived photo 1 i am hoping to fit them sometime tomorrow after fiting the rear spring in doing so do they just clip into the back of the brake pad shown in photo 2 below ie the hollow space. all info and help as usual is most appreciated Arctic.

If this is the case i presume any cable left hanging would fit into and under the brake nipple rubber dust cover :confused:

Yes, they just clip in that hole. There's a little spring clip on the sensor. If the new ones don't have it retrieve it from the old sensor.
