well thanks! i am glad you are enjoying it

Update for today i replaced the rear brake discs and pads as well as a caliper that had seen better days which was all a piece of cake, then came to do the fronts and my god who thought this up, here is a summary of the front vs rear brake replacement

Rear:

Undoo caliper
Undoo carrier
Remove caliper, carrier and disc

Front:

Undoo caliper
Undoo carrier
Undoo centre cap bolts (x5)
Remove circlip from driveshaft
undoo 3 screws holding the hub nut protector plate in
Remove the hub nut with a hammer and swearing
Remove disc and hub assembly
Undoo hub bolts
Remove hub from disc with a hammer and some more swearing

Honest to god it would be easier to dismantle the space shuttle, better yet after having done all that in the poaring rain yesterday i came to refit the new ones only to realise they sent the wrong ones!!!!

also little note the frontera is on 75,000 miles and the engine is knackered, i should have bought an astra van lol
