I am trying to find an answer in Google, but I can not. How to guess in which direction to screw the piston in a particular car and in a particular clamp? I'm taking on the replacement of the blocks in scenic II 1.5dci and I would like to prepare myself substantively.
I have a market kit for screwing the pistons. Just that the set has two types of threads - left and right, prompted me to set in which direction to screw. Well, I turned on the left side, I took out the leftovers and started with the plunger. Actually you can see that it turns right and turns to the left, without any resistance I did not even have to push the tool against the other side of the clamp, just by turning and pressing with your hand it hid to a certain point. But it still does not go. It is still missing about a centimeter so that the pads and the shield can fit. Denying the tool for a place under the outer brick, it does not turn, it stands asleep. What could I do wrong with such a simple operation?
Picture in the attachment. Wet plunger - I'm not sure if it is a leak or water (it is a plush and still a car was driving today), the plunger was strongly extended before screwing in ("woman rides", read does not mention anything while it works), but it seems to me that it did not fall out, the pedal was not soft with the rest after being put in the air for sure. However, could it affect the difficulty with pressing the plunger?
Clamp to repair and probably a piston to replace because it is corroded. When the piston is extended, the dust cover does not guarantee good adhesion and protection, corrosion of the piston occurs and when attempted to screw it in the clamp and damage to the gasket-standard in the rear clamps operated for a long time with the worn-out blocks.
Affirmative. In the Ford in the right clamp, turn left, left turn right. But if it does not go so lightly that you need to deny the device, I immediately put it on the table for cleaning and new erasers.
There is no corrosion or crumb under the rubber band. The problem solved - I used the extension, after one turn it went on until the end without any major resistance, the other side went without any problems.
In the Ford in the right clamp, turn left, left turn right.
Does this apply to the entire brand or several models?
