    hi there
    I was looking under my van and noticed what looks like 2bottle cleaners with pipes coming out of it
    looks like it is made of alloy. Could it be some kind of radiator (it is in the middle of the van).

    Sorry but having problem downloading a photo.

    thanks Jon, got the bits today and had a look, it appears to be as you say and the abs ring has to come off to access the bolts that hold disc and hub together ... heard it can be a pig ,that's why I asked if you had done it..
    still need a 65mm socket, when I get that ill have a go..
    thanks for reply
    andy
