I've got slightly binding rear brakes. It's not being caused by the handbrake (manual, not electric). So I've tried to take caliper off to clean things up. Can't see how to take the retaining clip off without using so much force I'll break it. Which bit of the clip do you pull and in which direction? I'm sure it's easy if you know how to move it. Any advice would be great. Thanks.
Haven't seen the backs, but the fronts just yank off. They're really tough. Just pull off using pliers or lever off using a screwdriver. You can get replacements for a few quid from most motor factors thatcwill be nice and shiny too.

Thanks. I might get a couple of new ones. If I can see what shape the bit inside the caliper is then I'll know which way to yank them. And also I can break them as much as I like!! And soon we'll all have Haynes manuals anyway so no more guesswork. Great news.
the caliper is held on by two bolts that undo with a 7mm hex allen key or adaptor to fit in a socket
There is a plastic dust cover over the head of these bolts that just levers out with either your thumb or at worst a flat screwdriver
