    Rear Brake Piston

    Hi All. I am changing the rear disc pads on my 58 plate saloon but the piston does not slide back in and there does not seem to be a way to wind it back in. Should it just push back because that is what I seem to remember. Oh, it is the offside if that makes any difference. Thanks.

    Dipped beam

    Hi, Having replaced my dipped beams on my Accord due to them blowing, I must say how underwhelmed I am with the replacements. Osram Night somethings.
