hey, quick question, very noobish

i have simple disc brakes, mechanical by shimano, i want to back one of the pads off so that it will stop rubbing

by tightening the adjusting barrels, brings the left pad in and loosening moves it further away, but the right pad is rubbing. i found a hex bolt with metal rings - like washers - and above it it says "R-pad in" with an arrow clockwise.

if i turn this anticlockwise, will it back off that brake pad? coz the bike guy said dont fiddle too much with them, and im no expert one discs... but he is a [email protected] and a cocky pr1ck. thanks for the help? (oh and can someone teach me about the high-low bolts on the deraileurs, can be screwed searching through these massive forums:p )

thanks, all help greatly appreciated:D

Yup it sounds like you've got it right.

Just unscrew it a bit to get the rubbing to stop.

As for the high and lows they just control how far in or out the derailleur will put the chain on the cassette. I'll let some one else chime in on that.
