    Homemade brake caliper piston wind back tool

    This is my home made tool for winding back the pistons of rear brake callipers on typically Volkswagen vehicles.

    As you can see its simply an M10 x 100mm bolt, large washer, 2 M10 nuts, piece of 1/8th plate and 2 M6 set screws.

    For smaller/larger pistons the washer with nut welded onto it can be unscrewed from the bolt and changed.

    This cost me nothing to make really and saved a lot of stress, proper units are typically £10 upwards.

    Not pretty but it works!

    Thoughts please.
