New pads
News discs
New wear sensors

He’s rebuilt the dodgy one and so will keep an eye on it

We could see the piston extended all the way out on one of the twin pistons
Moved it back in and was quite easy and free
However first attempt to reset into position didn’t help

So have rebuilt it and hopefully see if it does the job
