FIAT BRAVO Rear Brake Calipers

Hi I purchased my bravo (07 reg) second hand about 6 months ago now and am loving it. It has now got to the stage where the rear brake pads need replacing. I do not mind doing this sort of thing and have done it in the past. Anyway when I came to do it I could not wind back the piston with my wind back tool no matter how much I tried. I tried both the left threaded tool and right threaded tool (just

With the risk of being flamed I am looking to change the disks and pads all round on the car are the pistons threaded or is there a keyway on the piston or do I have to invest in a wind back tool I have been shocked at just how bad the bravo brakes are engineered. I have had 2 callipers replaced under warranty due to them ceasing the second time the dealer even said it was due to the salt on the roads.

FIAT BRAVO Bravo Evaluation Please

Hello All Well some of you might remember me some not. Im considering returning to the fiat family after spending some time with the Alfa clan. Can you guys give me an evaluation of the bravo 150 Diesel Sport I am contemplating buying one. Id like to know what to look for any known problems or niggles and wether you guys think I should bother with one I look forward to your feedback. Cheers TC.

for long stints. I went from London to Salerno and back ( just past amalfipositano) in my 150 MJET. A absolute pleasure comfortable economical averaged about 50mpg(with 4 people and full boot) 80mph cruise control on quiet and when i needed to hammer it there was plenty of pull. Those winding roads was a ok in mine but there was a lot of weight in the car so i let that pass and would say the bravo

You might look in the Stilo section for a recent thread on brakes . Might help you decide on your choice I got new discs from buypartsby but the carriage could be expensive to ROI. There is an old thread in bravo section re winding back the rear calipers to fit pads. Worth a good read.

Yes you do need a wind-back tool for winding back the rear calipers. They wind back clockwise on the right-hand side and anti-clockwise on the left. The fronts dont need any special tools from what I can tell but you will need to deal with brake pad wear sensors (on the left-hand front according to my workshop manual.). I havent actually worked on my front brakes so I have no personal experience. Mintex

Well in the last couple of weeks my bravo has been treated to a few more subtle modds such as alfa 147 door handles 40mm drop on jamex springs and of course the Stilo Abarth alloys which I posted a little while back cant think of anything else to do to it really except tinting the windows.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Handbrake mot failure....(

The bravo (mk1 hgt) failed mot on a few brake related issues.... 1st are both front brake lines corroded to excess and also nearside rear.....thought about buying a decent pipe flarerpipe and ends but garage only quoted me 2hrs labour to replace so seems sensible to let them do that. Also failed as rear parking brake only 12% efficient....ooops. Want to take all cables out and grease them up...may

I changed the rear lines on my Marea without rear brake compensator (which I think mk1 has) readymade copper pipes and it would have taken about two hours if I had the routine and tools ready (namely torch and mini boltcutters). Right side is over the tank and needs spaghettinhands to do properly. Not sure about front as there is little room around the abs unit to work with (and 5pot underhood generally).

FIAT BRAVA 182 replacing Brake PAds on HGT

ok have new front and back pads for my HGT. now how do you change them on my vectra it was simple. do you need any specials tools. has the front caliper gota come off and what do you do on the rears also in future.. got mot next week and discs are pretty warn also. may replace them too. only question about hem is how do you undo the center bolt it has like a locking clip in the middle and same question to remove the rears ta

calipers have to come off on front and rear. 2 bolts on each one and theyre off... Spring clip on the fronts so a good pair of pliers is needed.. Front pistons can be pushed back to get the new pads in but youll need the specific wind back tool for the rears.
