2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible
When replacing the rear brake pads of both the MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S, it is necessary to retract the piston in the caliper to make room for the new pads. The piston in the rear caliper on the MINI needs to be 'rotated' as it is retracted - which is easily accomplished with this special aftermarket tool. This tool ensures the right amount of turn as the piston gets retracted.
