Doing my first change and had a couple of questions:

1) The parts manual talks about a lock for the pin that is punched out to release the spring that holds the pads. Mine does not have such locks - is this general? They seem from the illustration to be a type of collar.

2) The rear pads are retained with a spring. There is no obvious way to release the spring. Do you clamp the lower part to withdraw the lower pins from the caliper?

Tried to search the archives here but the forum does not seem to have a search function?

Any help appreciated

OK. question one solved. Squeeze spring together at the center in the vertical plane using a grip and the top part of the spring will release.

Stil unsure of the answer with Q2 - just going to replace the parts as I find them but no sign of the "locks"

Sorry I cannot answer your question. Here is the search for the archives:

http://www.ferrariforum.net/forum/search.php

To get here you have to use the dropdown menu in the top left under the "Ferrari Forum - Forums for Ferrari discussion"

In the next release I plan to make this easier to find.
Thanks found it. Its not instinctive to look in the box showing Ferrari Forum. I was looking in the main tool bar above it.

Nothing on Q1 though.

I will be the first to admit, Ferrari Forum is not as strong in Tech help as I'd like. You will probably get a better answer at:

http://www.ferrari-talk.com/

as the owner of that site is a Ferrari specialist out of Texas. However, please don't forget your new friends here. I hope you are able to solve the brake issue.

For the sake of the archive: The lock is built into the pin that retains the pad spring. It stops you from pushing the pin in too far and does not hinder punching it out with a needle punch on the outboard end of the pin.
