The original rear pads on my 06 GRiSO are looking a bit thin. I've ordered a new set, hope to fit them this weekend.
Is it possible to do this with the rear wheel in place? Is there a how to guide anywhere?

Many thanks!

Yeah, just drop the caliper off, it's pretty straightforward. While it's off it's worth making sure the pins aren't seized and applying a bit o grease to them.

The rear (and front) caliper bolts are both tight (50Nm) and soft so best use a 6 sided socket (like an impact socket) not a 12 point one to remove and replace them.

I tried it first time with a 12 point socket and it rounded the points off the bolt.

Hi Pete, it's the metal pin that hold the pads in. I cant see a way of removing it. The fronts have a small spring clip in them, but the rear doesn't.
I'm getting the really big hammer ready just in case!!

On my GRiSO (2009) the rear brake pad pin has a small "e-clip" on the outer end.
When that is taken off (or falls off) the pin is held in the caliper by a spring collar that jams inside the housing so just drive it out from the narrow end with a nail punch. parts book page rear brake

Hi Folks,

GTS,
You won't need that hammer!!
Like LCJ says you need to fiddle with that clip & the pads'll fall out!
I always have to get some small pliers on the pin to pull it out (lots of corrosion on it!)...last year's pad change I got a new pin in a pad replacement set from Guzzibits or Fowlers (can't remember right now).
I'll still have the packaging as I kept it for the next time I need to do change them so can dig that out tonight & PM you tomorrow with the part number if you like.

Good luck with it.....

The pin moves freely, I'll need to get on my hands and knees to pull the clip. It's a long way down!!
A new pin & clips is probably a good idea though.
I bet if I go for a ride this Sunday evening, I'll have the rods to myself!!

Cheers everyone.
