They both wind in clockwise, you just need to make sure the slots in the piston will line up with the pins on the back of the pad.

Might be worth checking the sliders, on my o/s/r the pads stuck on and killed the disk. All when we were away on holiday, ended up new pads and disks on the rear.

Fitter said he had to hammer the sliders to get them moving!!!

Best of luck for the weekend.

Dont need any special tools to wind in the piston. Just make sure that with each little turn that you help the rubber dust cover back around in the opposite direction or you may well tear it. I used the thin handle of the tool used to tighten up the discs on a disc cutter. Simple.
