- When you are winding the
piston back in, ensure that one of the cut outs in the piston is at 3
o'clock, this cut out engages in a small pin on the back of the pad. If
the piston is not aligned, you will get a 10-15mm rust ring at the
outer edge of the inner surface of the disc due to uneven pressure on
the brake pad.

pot AP calipers
thread on MG-Rover.org by Dr
Dave on fitting the 4 pot AP calipers that were part of the SP1 option
on the TF.
- Pad replacement
- The AP calipers
are very easy to work on. Once you have the road wheel removed, knock
out the two pad retaining pins with a suitable drift. Remove the pad
retaining spring (note its orientation) and pull out the two pads, push
back the pistons into the caliper body using a stout screwdriver or
flat bar (check the brake master cylinderreservoir to make sure that
the hydraulic fluid being pushed back into the brake circuit is not
over flowing!). Clean up the caliper before replacing the new pads.
Check the new pads slide easily into the calipers, file the edges if
they bind. Apply copper grease to the backs and top and bottom edges of
the new pads, DO NOT GET ANY GREASE ON THE BRAKE MATERIAL!!.
Slide the new pads into the caliper lining up the slotted holes with
the pin retaining holes in the caliper body, replace the pad retaining
spring (note that its the right orientation), and finally replace the
retaining pins, you will have to use a hammer and drift to seat these
into the caliper body. Told you it was easy.
