Anyone replaced front discs on Brembo equipped car


Recommended Posts

I've done the rears with no problems encountered, but had a look at the front Brembo calipers today and it doesn't look that simple. The main problem is if I remove the caliper, the brake line is a metal tube rather than the more simple rubber tubing (that's on the rear Brembo calipers) - and I'm sure the metal tubing will stress and snap. I don't want to have to bleed and disconnect everything.

My question is: Does this metal tubing flex enough so that the caliper can sit out of the way whilst the rotor is replaced ?? Seems like quite a solid bit of non flexible metal tubing to me.

Unbolt the caliper and rest it on an axle stand. The brake line is strong enough to hold it from falling off, you just need something to support it underneath.
