Akebono EUR946
 
1 Attachment(s)
So, I tried to install the EUR946 (see pics) on my 330i after following the DIY on the site. However seems like EUR946 is so thick that my caliper won't accept it?! Am I doing something wrong or I got the wrong part?


By the way I ordered this part from FCP Euro, after selecting the right model of the car this part was shown as the exact fit. However when I received the shipment box of akebono was open!

Anyone?

It is right part number for 330i. It is currently on my 330i. I like it alot for super low brake dust.

Did you push back the piston using c-clamp or this tool?

Have to push back the piston. Use your old brake pad and thumbs, it'll push back.

Lol, you don't need a tool.

Grab a lever, wedge it between the caliper piston and hub. Don't damage the disc or whatever you're propping it against.
