I'll admit I didn't take a long hard swing at the Vessel with my 4lb club hammer.  I was more concerned I would miss and injure my hand that was holding the Vessel, but I thought I applied quite a lot of striking force.

The ball of hammer onto screw head method worked for me on this occasion and so much easier and quicker.  I just tapped the screw heads 3 times and screw was loose enough to undo even without impact function of the Vessel on some of them.

That is the same driver I have, apologies, I was under the impression it tightened as well, but as you say, the instructions are in Japanese.
It has worked for me on 3 sets of discs so far, every time it was a struggle and I can't stress enough how hard you need to hit it, and keep on hitting it.

Hi all, looking to see what others have paid a garage labour cost to fit a new clutch on a 1400 jazz year 2004, I was looking to get a Borg & Beck clutch kit.

Sticking brake pads after wash or rain is quite normal behaviour for disc brakes. Pad has slight contact with the disc all the time and rust bonds them together. The only thing to pull pad away from the disc is piston seal, but that is depending on the seal design.

Come on Haynes.
Haynes manual for the Mk1 is less than useless so I wouldn't put much store in a Mk3 version if they ever produce one.

Sometimes if the car has been put away after driving in heavy rain, and left for two or three days, it feels like I am trying to drive out the garage with the handbrake engaged. The crack when it frees up is loud. Even my wife, standing outside the garage, has said: "What was that".
With regards chromed discs on bikes, they look great but are less efficient in the wet, and as you said, once the chrome starts to go...............

Am also keen to get one, helps with any problems even if you dont do your own repairs. Also tells you more about the workings than the manual. Come on Haynes.

Brake pads 'sticking on' after washing the car or after rain was an issue with my 2004 Jazz and my 2016. On a night my car is garaged with hand brake off and in Park. Front and back pads will 'stick' certainly overnight and release with a 'crack'! Once driven a few hundred yards pafs run free. Just one of those things. Honda tried to stop this on CB750 motorbike by using chromed discs - worked but swine when the chrome worn.
