Nice video! I first saw it on fcp’s site and thought that they had produced
it, but after coming to your blog through the brickboard, I’m glad to find
the original source. Thanks for taking the time to put it together.
I also want to compliment and thank you for this very clear and succinct video. I did my front brakes a while back based on it, and am now returning to it as I prepare to do the rear brakes. One question, though. Is it typically necessary to bleed the brake lines when this job is done? How would it show if bleeding the lines was needed? Is there an online resource that covers that procedure? Oops! That’s THREE questions. :[
Anyway, if you do kindly answer any one, or all three :) of my questions, please shoot me a quick email to let me know to check back.
My car is exactly the same as yours… a 1992 black 240! I’ve been using your video to replace my pads and rotors, the front went without a hitch but I’ve hit a problem on the rear. There doesn’t seem to be enough room to get a torque wrench in between the spring and caliper mounting bolts to torque it down. Did you have this problem at all?
