Front rotor rubbing on caliper

Postby bond-007 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 21:42 pm

Bought a Voodoo Hantu today but the problem of rotor rubbing on caliper was my fault as i removed the front wheel to fit it into the car and accidentally hit the brake.

Am i right in saying that to fix this you loosin the caliper fixing bolts then press the brake lever and tighten the fixing bolts again?

just press the pads back in with something flat and clean and then rest them by pulling the very a few times.

and use the travel spacers you should ave got from halfords.

if you did not get them go and ask them form them.

When i say rubbing now its very very slight but am a perfectionist lol and its only at one point of the wheel turning you hear it

Get used to it. Discs can be annoyingly noisy at times.
