    side (Drivers side on the right in the uk) does any one have any tips for
    the fitting it does look quite straight forward but I am a little unsure if
    there is a bleeding proceedure for the fluid any help is greatly apreciated

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    You'll certainly need to bleed the brakes when you've fitted it.

    Make a careful note of how that 'orrible bit of springy wire fits on the
    outside, so you can put it back in the same way (it's a right sod to get it
    to spring into position!). Also note that you'll need a 7mm Allen key (or
    male hex socket tool) to undo the pins (behind a rubber/plastic cover) which
    hold the calliper in place. 7mm is a non-standard size, and most sets of
    Allen keys don't have one!

    The whole process is described in more detail in Haynes manual No. 3573.
