Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a cheap piston rewind tool for the K rear brakes please?

Thanks
Chris

Hi christay. I am not sure about your budget, but I have had this set for a long time: https://www.eurocarparts.com/p/am-tech- ... gKK3_D_BwE.

I have multiple different cars, and it helps because the set can accommodate for both left and right turning brake pistons.

Would recommend- works on the Astra.

I bought a similar type kit off Ebay for around £25, used it successfully a few times on different cars. So it's certainly paid for it's self now.

I bought one of these from Amazon some time ago, has been fine for the limited use it has been put to. Many other similar looking sets out there...
