    See how easily the pistons will wind back in.

    Could also be a rusty slider pin.

    Right, so last night I went and picked up some blue print discs and delphi pads.

    Got everything off, and the pads were destroyed! Disc's looked bad but I have seen worse.

    So we proceded to change everything over, the calipar piston wound back with no problem :D

    So now I have fresh disc's and pads on the rear of the car.

    Thanks all for the advice!! much appreciated.
