Me too . Got new disks and pads to do . Going to paint every thing up tho . Just not sure what colour. Go standard silver or something like f1 turquoise patronus green . Instead of red or blue . Yawn lol

If you don't have the special tool in a pinch you can use long nose pliers and waterpump pliers... The tool is cheap on Amazon so just buy that

The main reason for submerging is so u can see the bubbles coming out easier. I just put new pads in mine and the piston is binding on and making my pads heat up on one side so gonna change both callipers as soon as I can as I’ve heard they can become a problem. Easier to change whole callipers than repair which doesn’t always work.

If you lever the operating lever upwards with something like a big screwdriver it should operate the handbrake. If it's not doing that you have done something wrong.
