Hmmmmm, I'm not so sure that the piston is 'wound' back after re-reading my thread.....Michael's quote:

Correct!
Yes it’s only works for X760/X761/X260/L550/L560/L538...

X250 for changing rear pads, the calipers should be screw up

In case anyone was interested, had to change all 4 discs and the pads again today. Genuine parts were fitted last time, now up to 33,000 miles in 4 years.
None of the pads were sticking, all the sliders and calipers are working as per design.
Car does spend 2-3 days in a row out of every 8 stationary, but does do 4 x 50 mile commutes in between.

The Panda has £13 discs on and gets a lot less use, its brakes are still absolutely fine.
These Jaguar ones really are made from recycled Lancia Betas and cheese.

I would have thought Jaguar has changed the manufacture of these discs now(OEM), but they could be old stock............?

PR3 has done a v low mileage, and this damp winter during 'lockdown 3' had me on tenterhooks, but all is well as only surface rust has appeared!

I got 2 sets of discs (seller's mistake!) so these will be at least 2 years old.
