reworking the crashed brembo MC ***pics

i have repaired my crashed brembo MC this afternoon,i take a few photos,and i hope it would help other guy who is first reworking their brembo mc.



the first thing is to get the lever off,JimmyJam have a great instruction how to do it(thank you JimmyJam)
"To do this you have to drive out a very small diameter roll pin. I use a very small finsihing nail. Then remove the e-clip and the pivot pin will drop out. You can then rotate the lever and it will spin off the part you are going to replace in the crash repair kit."

and then,you need a special tools to get that rubber hat off,but please remember there are some sealant on the screw,and it seems a little difficult to me.

and i don't have that special tools,you can see the result is not so good.

in fact,i did not buy the brembo mc crash repair kit yet,so i decided to make one.
the original hat was broken,so it's hard to measure in some place,although the new hat is not exactly the same size as the brembo made,but i think it would work perfectly still.

here is a little tip,when you push the piston into the cylinder,you'd better use a tool which have the smooth surface to help the top rubber seal into the cylinder.be carefule don't scratch that rubber seal,or you brembo mc will get leakage maybe.

i use chopsticks:)

That's not to come out. That's why there is glue on it. The rubber gasket (boot) comes off then you take the c-clip off
