Could anyone confirm if this is the same tool required for the rear calipers ?. I think I read somewhere that the same caliper was used on certain Porsche models. If not where can the correct tool be purchased ?
Instead of buying a piece of paper from Erik, you can trace my photo from your screen and pay me by PayPal.well any paper cut to 20 degrees will do the trick as well. I can sell you such piece of paper if you want....
The point of the cut out is to tilt the brake pad into the rotor, which prevents it from vibrating. Or maybe it tilts it away from the rotor. Anyhow, it is important to install these pistons correctly, though I suspect that 19° or 21° would work equally well.So I’m doing a rear break job on the Bav and saw these 20 degree cut outs on the pistons. What is the point to it?
Any idea if the Porsche caliper is the same ATE part as BMW ?. Joking aside I would like to buy the tool rather than mess around with bits of paper.
