Details

If you're planning on replacing your own brake pads or rotors (or both) you may find that the rear calipers are big hassle to get compressed so you can get a new fresh brake pad in and fit over the rotor. Over time as the pads and rotors wear down which allows the the piston to slowly move inward to help keep the pedal feel the same even when the pads are getting thinner. In order to get the piston back into position it needs to be compressed AND rotated much like a giant screw. Without this tool or one like it, it is nearly impossible. The Mini Cooper (Clubman, etc) has the parking brake system incorporated into the rear brake caliper, which is common with nearly all modern cars. This system allows you to hydraulically (via the brake pedal) apply the rear brakes while pulling the ebrake handle will mechanically move the piston. This combination requires the use of a special piston retracting tool when installing new rear brake pads because of the hybrid nature of the caliper. This brake caliper tool is specifically designed to lock into the Mini Cooper rear brake caliper piston and apply the required pressure as well as screw the piston back into the caliper housing in the same motion. There is really not another safe way to get the piston to back out and having this tool will save you hours or frustration if you end up needing to stop halfway through the the project to hunt down the correct tool (s) locally. This kit allows you to rotate various pistons back into their caliper housing when changing brake pads. This kit works with MINI, Ford, GM, Volkswagen, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Toyota, BMW, Audi and other vehicles.

Out Motoring deserves kudos for their service! I was prepping for a road trip when less than two weeks prior I decided to upgrade two engine mounts and install a short shift adapter in my R53. Aaron and Brittany were hugely helpful in getting me ready! Brittany was able to find the mounts I wanted in stock, and Aaron helped me with info on the short shifter I was looking at. Brittany helped me again when I changed my mind, by modifying my order on the fly. They got the components to me in four days - plenty of lead time before my scheduled installation appointment and well in advance of the trip. BIG Thanks to Out Motoring for their help. This outfit will be at the top of my vendor list for future maintenance and upgrade needs.

Ordered a small part from you guys on 22nd December and received it in New Zealand on 5th Jan. It came direct from USA not from China. Tracing information every day on progress of parcel. Best I have ever had. I know where I will be buying my Mini parts from now on. Very pleased I found you.
