taking your foot of the pedal usually does the trick

Toby,
Make sure the cable is well greased and that the arm on the caliper is free.
any other advice is down to Brian as that's as much as I know about it.

Toby, is it the cable or the caliper not returning properly? If its the cable probably best to replace, if its tha caliper arms not returning properly with cables removed, ( my guess its the calipers), remove h/brake cable from caliper and squirt WD40 or similar all over the arm that the cable goes into, and move the arm back and forth until the arms return by themselves against the stops, then reassemble as described before. Did you manage to sort out front brakes? Roger.

ah thanks guys for the interest, however the weekend turned out to be less than productive. as the moment the garage is out of action, so any work i'm doing is done outside, & since it was freezing cold, wet & windy i got nothing done. I so so so wanted to get them sorted but it wasn't gonna happen. hopefully i can get it in the garage soon & renew my work.

But that'll have to wait for another couple of weeks, as guys i'm off to Las Vegas this Saturday!!!!!!!!!! Staying in the Venitian, second time there & would highly recommend it. So hey if i get lucky i might be able to get alot more for the Dedra sooner than i thought! Grin

well i didn't get lucky in Vegas Sad

so i hope to re-start working on the brakes next weekend, however i'm very worried about messing up on the rear brakes, i have the tools to take them off properly, but i'm just wondering how do i wind back the rear calipers without messing them up, oh and i'd like to jack the rear of the car up entirely, i have two jack stands to do this, but the points under the car to put the stands aren't clear (well to me) any clues on where is the best place to put the stands?? its my greatest worry that if i put them in the wrong place i'll end up making a very expensive error!

Hi Toby,
Just refresh my memory of your Dedra 1.8ie,   is it fitted with ABS? as that will make a difference in procedure.

Please email me the answers, & I'll email you back the relevant pages from the manual.

Do you have a handbook for your car? if so look up jacking up the car with a hydraulic jack, or cars jack, in my handbook it's page 96, this shows where to place the axle stands, make sure to use a block of wood between the axle stand & body.

Hi Toby,
Wood gives so you won't damage anything such as the metal flange by a metal to metal contact, it's also less likely to slip Grin

Manual information will be on the way to you later today.
