Rebuilding Electric over hydraulic brake calipers - trigg A200


Hey folks, just thought I'd make a video about reconditioning brakes on an electric over hydraulic trailer.  The calipers I have are Trigg A200.  I decided to learn how to do it myself after going to a brake shop once and they just threw out my old calipers and replaced them.  After receiving that bill I vowed to do it myself....  The calipers I have now are 10 years old.  They'll last forever if you just give them a rebuild every 12 months or so.  

Anyway, video below.  No ads, no sponsorship, happy to hear any feedback.

To do it at home. Well done on the video hope it helps some fishos out there.

 If you've got the same calipers one thing I forgot to mention was to make sure you clean the hole in the bleed screw before re-assembly.  They get blocked with gunk.
