Default Anyone done rear disks/pads on a 172?

...just wondering if there is anything to watch out for. I know they have abs rings and bearings, but does this change what looks like a simple job?

My subscription must have expired cos I can't get to the guides for you.
Found this advice, dunno if it helps?

Changing rear discs and pads.. help!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm fitting new discs and pads all round on my 172 cup. I should be able to do the front's no problem, but someone mentioned to me that in order to do the rears I'll need a wind-back tool. Is it necessary or is there a way around it?
If not, any idea's where I can get one? I don't fancy forking out another 70 for labour after paying over 320 for parts already lol.

you can wind the caliper back with out that tool a screw driver will do you just wind it anti clockwise or you can use a little bit of bar thats a maximum off 10mm wide

I found the rears easier to do than the fronts lol, one less bolt, I never used any special tools.

As mentioned the rears can be wound back with a screwdriver put across the slots. THe fronts can be pushed back in with a G clamp, on the fron calipers theres even a slot in the middle of the caliper for access. Make sure you get the rear pads the right way round.

I've done em, but it was a loooooong time ago. From memory the ABS rings were easy but the bearings were fiddly. I vice and some blocks of wood to prevent damage worked well
