is it possible to remove the rear brake caliper without removing the axle ???
Yes it is, brake cleaner and a toothbrush is my preferred method. My wife gets a little ticked at me when I use her toothbrush though. :joke: Just make sure you put some caliper grease around the pistons so they are good and lubed and don't hang up.I take it its OK to use basic brake cleaner to clean up the rear caliper
i must have bad eyes. now i have to make a trip in the morning :-\you should be able to get those little packets of grease at any parts store there usually right at the counter where you check out.
